Leganes 16/5 to beat Espanyol in Friday’s La Liga clash
Competition: La Liga
Market: Leganes win
Odds: 16/5 @ Bet 365
Hoping to start the New Year in a similar fashion to how they ended 2018, Leganes will travel to the RCDE Stadium on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, after a very worrying run of form entering the New Year, Espanyol have begun freefalling down the La Liga table. In their 17 games this season, they have recorded six wins, three draws and eight defeats, scoring 18 and conceding 24 in return. With a points tally of 21, Espanyol currently sit way down in 14th and will be looking over their shoulder at the relegation zone. As for their recent form, Friday’s hosts have now lost their last six La Liga outings, a run that stems back to the start of November. More concerning, the Blue and White’s have now lost their last three home matches.
As for the visitors, after enjoying a very impressive resurge before the Christmas break, Leganes will now have their sights set on a push for the top half of the La Liga table. In their 17 games this season, they have won four, drawn seven and lost six, scoring 16 and conceding 20 in return. With a points tally of 19 they do currently sit just four points ahead of the relegation zone. However, Leganes should be boosted by their successful run in December, Friday’s visitors are now unbeaten in their last six matches across all competitions. It is also worth noting that they are now unbeaten in their last four matches on the road.
