Valencia vs Leganes Match Preview
Valencia host troubled Leganes for their Matchday 5 La Liga clash on Sunday looking to capitalize on the rivals’ woes in the new campaign and bag important points in front of the home fans, which would see them keep up with the top part of the table early on – now sitting six points behind pace-setters Sevilla.
Los Che have beaten Mallorca (2-0) ahead of the International break and while they’ve failed to challenge Barcelona after it, suffering a comfortable 5-2 loss at Camp Nou, we feel they will be in a good mood now. Indeed, Celades’ men snatched all three points in Champions League win over Chelsea (0-1) on Tuesday and we now expect them just as motivated.
Leganes have, on the other hand, struggled to put on great displays and they are now the only La Liga side still looking for their first points. They’ve seen some narrow clashes but failed to take points, which will make the 0-3 loss to Villarreal last week even more worrying ahead of this fixture.
Lega have seen Osasuna (0-1), Atletico Madrid (0-1), and Real Betis (2-1) narrowly snatch the points beforehand, obviously looking solid at the back but struggling to capitalize. They will now hope for more at Mestalla Stadium but very few believe in an upset on their end here.
We thus feel Valencia will be able to secure the points with confidence and we’ll stick with them at 8/13 with bet365, which looks like buying money for old rope as Valencia obviously have more depth in quality and more to play for at this point.
While we haven’t really seen Valencia enjoy some high-scoring games in front of the home fans this term, we feel Lega will make it a thriller in the making. With that in mind, we hope to see goals on both ends and go for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 23/20 with Ladbrokes!
