Real Betis vs Leganes Preview

 

Real Betis vs Leganes

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Benito Villamarín

Date: 15th January 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Real Betis have been eliminated from the Copa del Rey and they would be delighted for that as they can now focus on moving up the league table.

They won their last league game against Sevilla 5-3 – their first derby win in four years and they will be looking to build on that in this game.

Fans will most likely be disappointed if they expect that kind of score line here again as Leganes are arguably the most defensive side in the division this season while the hosts are one of the possession-based sides in the league.

Betis enjoyed 75% possession in their game against Atletico Madriid but they still ended up as the losing side and that could be the same outcome here if they don’t learn to take their chances.

Leganes are on a good run of form not just this season but also in the clubs history and even without a trophy to show for their efforts, this is a real glory time for them.

They competed in the Spanish top flight for the first time last season and seem to have discovered how to thrive in the league.

They have also qualified for the Copa del Rey for the first time in their history.

Leganes have conceded less than one goal per game this season.

They have won 3 of their last 4 meetings against Betis.
