Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao Match Preview
Athletic Bilbao are usually a more reliable proposition at home, but their overall form could steer them to an important victory at Leganes.
The Basque club have improved significantly from December onwards after too many draws in the first few months of the campaign, their progress being clearly connected to the appointment of Gaizka Garitano as manager.
As things stand, Athletic Club, as they prefer to be known, are on course to finish seventh in La Liga and return to the Europa League next term.
Their away results, and goalscoring record on their travels (see stats above) is a worry, but they should not have too much to fear against a mid-table Leganes side.
Leganes are coached by former Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino and they can look forward to a fourth consecutive campaign in the Spanish top flight having consolidated their status commendably.
Only five points separate these clubs in the table, but Athletic Bilbao are on an upward curve and they are backed to grind out a narrow success that would cement that important seventh place.
