CD Leganes plays host to Real Valladolid in Spanish La Liga soccer action from the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Saturday afternoon.
CD Leganes enters this match sitting in 19th position in the middle of the relegation zone sitting on 23 points with a record of 5 wins, 8 draws and 14 losses after a 2-1 upset victory over Villarreal in their last match before La Liga was forced to pause due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. In the match against Villarreal, Leganes fell behind after just five minutes, and the goal would hold up into the half before Oscar tied the game at one for Leganes just two minutes after halftime. Oscar completed the brace and gave Leganes the lead in the 70th minute from the penalty spot and despite Villarreal’s best efforts, Leganes would hold on for a key three points in the relegation battle. Oscar Rodriguez leads Leganes in scoring with 7 goals while Martin Braithwaite is 2nd with 6 goals on the year.
Real Valladolid on the other hand, enter this game in 15th place with 29 points with a record of 6 wins, 11 draws and 10 losses after a 4-1 loss to Athletic Bilbao in their last matchup pre-hiatus. In the loss to Bilbao, Valladolid fell behind just four minutes into the game and Bilbao doubled their lead just 20 minutes later. The lead held up through the majority of the second half before Sandro Ramirez pulled one back and got Valladolid on the board in the 76th minute. Bilbao would pull away for good in the 87th before adding a 4th marker in the third minute of second half stoppage time. Sergi Guardiola leads Valladolid in scoring with 6 goals while Enes Unal is second in scoring with 4 goals on the year. Jordi Masip Lopez is the top goalkeeper for Real Valladolid, conceding 1.04 goals per 90 minutes with 8 clean sheets in 27 league appearances this season.
Having no fans in the stands will negate a key home field advantage that Leganes would need to climb out of the relegation zone. However, they’ll have key spots to take advantage of down the stretch and I feel this is one of them. Valladolid is higher in the table by 4 spots, but while the two sides drew in the first meeting this season, prior to that, Leganes had won the previous five head-to-head meetings in the league. Normally, taking less plus money with a team in the relegation zone isn’t a play I’m looking to make, but given the history between the two sides, it’s worth the look here. Give me Leganes for the win at home here.
