Celta Vigo vs Leganes Preview

Celta Vigo vs Leganes

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Balaídos

Date: 14th December 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Leganes have entered a good period of form recently after starting out this season in poor fashion.

Former Southampton manager, Mauricio Pellegrino is working some magic at the outskirts of Madrid and his team look like they can cause Celta Vigo some problems here.

Leganes joined the Spanish topflight three seasons ago and have ended their last two campaigns just outside the relegation zone.  If they keep their current form up, they should end up in a better position this time around.

Pellegrino specializes in solid defending and his team come into this game with just one defeat in their last 10 games in all competitions and that makes it even harder for Celta to get an easy ride here.

The home side are just 3 points ahead of Leganes and they have suffered 3 losses from their last 5 games.

Their mid table position is a good one for them, but a slip up here could start a run of poor form that could see them change their manager yet again before the season ends.

The score line in this fixture in all competitions when Celta have hosted Leganes the last three times have all been 1-0.

Leganes claimed a win in 2 of those games with just a single win coming for the home side.

Bookmakers have priced Celta Vigo up as slight odds-on favourites to come out on top.

Iago Aspas is currently bookies favourite to score the first goal closely followed by Maximiliano Gomez and Dennis Eckert.
