Leganes vs Alaves Preview

Leganes vs Alaves

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Butarque

Date: 23rd November 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

After the long and sometimes boring international break, La Liga resumes this Friday as these two teams look for a win that would take them up the league table.

Leganes are currently 18th in the league table and a home win would help them move to 16th before the rest of the division play later in the weekend.

However, their current form does not suggest that they can get all three points against this very impressive Alaves side.

Leganes have won just two home games this season including a 2-1 home win against Barcelona, and they come into this game without a win in any of their last 5 games in all competition. They have drawn 4 of those previous 5 games..

Alaves come into this game in 4th position and just one point from the top of the league table.

A win for them in this game would take them top of La Liga temporarily before Barcelona, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid play their matches.

The visitors are having a good season and their away form is fueling their rise to the top of the league table.

They have won three away games this season and that includes a 5-1 win at Rayo Vallecano.

Alaves were beaten 2-1 by Eibar on their last away trip but they fought hard in that game and would feel that they deserved a point at the very least.

They have a single win from their last 3 games so they will be looking to get back to winning ways here and top the La Liga table if only for a short period of time.

Bookmakers make Leganes slight favourites to come out on top despite league placings.

Goal markets suggest this could be an underwhelming tie as under 2.5 goals is strongly trading odds-on.

This game gets underway at 20:00 BST.
