Leganes host Granada in La Liga soccer action from the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Monday afternoon.
Leganes come into this match in 19th place, tied for last with Espanyol on 24 points with a record of 5 wins, 9 draws and 16 losses after a 1-1 tie with Mallorca in their last match. In the draw with Mallorca, Leganes fell behind just 9 minutes into the game and the lead would hold into the half and for most of the second half before Oscar saved the day again for Leganes in the 87th minute. The two sides would look for a late winner, but neither side would find it, settling for a share of the points in the end. Oscar leads Leganes in scoring with 9 goals this season.
Granada on the other side, come into this one in 10th place, tied with Athletic Bilbao on 42 points with a record of 12 wins, 6 draws and 12 losses after a 1-0 loss to Villarreal in their last match. In the defeat against Villarreal, Granada fell behind after just 11 minutes of play, and despite owning advantages of 14-5 in terms of shot attempts and 4-1 in regards to shots on target, Villarreal’s tally would hold up through the remaining 79 minutes plus stoppage time as the winner. Carlos Fernandez leads Granada in the goal-scoring department with 7 goals while Darwin Machis has 6 goals. Victor Diaz has a team-high 5 assists for Granada while Angel Montoro and Roberto Soldado each have 4 assists for Granada on the year. Rui Tiago is Granada’s top goaltender, conceding 1.14 goals per 90 minutes with 10 clean sheets in 29 league appearances this season.
The two sides have traded wins in this matchup, so it’s truly hard to pick a side here and you’re honestly splitting hairs. With that being said, I still think Granada is the better team here and we’ve seen both sides struggle to score since the restart. I’m going to side with Granada to pick up the win on the ML as well as with the correct score of 1-0 for sizeable plus money.
