Levante vs Leganes Preview

 

Levante vs Leganes

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Ciudad de Valencia

Date: 19th December 2017

Kick-off time – 20:30 GMT

This is not the most glamorous fixture but thankfully it is also not a relegation-escaping fixture either as both clubs have a good cushion over the relegation zone.

Levante appear to be the favourites here because of home advantage but they have been too poor defensively recently for them to be considered favourites.

They have conceded 13 goals in their last 6 games at home – a run which came against teams like Alaves, Getafe, and Girona.

That should concern their fans and manager alike as those are games they are expected to concede fewer goals.

Both teams have scored in all but one of their last home games and that should inspire their visitors to come attacking them.

Leganes have not done badly in their second consecutive top flight season and the Madrid based side look likely to maintain their top flight status at the end of this season.

They may not be famous for their attacking displays but they showed in their 3-1 home win over Villarreal that they can take their chances when they manage to create them.

They come into this game as the fresher of the two teams as they did not play over the weekend due to Real Madrid’s participation in the FIFA Club World cup.
