Leganes – Villarreal : Preview & Prediction
An entertaining match on this Thursday is the one played by Leganés and Villarreal for a new round of the Copa del Rey (first leg).
In my opinion, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, since the two teams are even in many ways. However, even if they have different football styles, we advise you to play a few euros on the “plus 1.5 goals” bet. He paints to be an intense duel and fought for the style of the premises, being able to fall the goals by the spaces that the visit leaves in defensive matter. Also remember that when playing substitutes, the many could fall for errors in the mark.
Take into account that Leganés equalized 0-0 against Levante as a visitor, reaching a total of 21 points. The team has added only 1 win in its last 5 presentations, costing it to be regular in its actions. Of course, despite everything, it remains compact between the lines. The team came to this instance after eliminating Valladolid from League 2 (wins 1-2 and 1-0 respectively).
On the other hand do not forget that the local team has added acceptable results in its stadium, after winning 3 games, match another 2 and lose the remaining 2 that disputed (6 goals in favor and 6 against). He comes from 2 draws in a row, to beat Athletic Bilbao 1-0, to lose 0-3 against Barcelona and to defeat Villarreal 3-1 in the Spanish tournament.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Villarreal defeated Valencia 1-0 before the Christmas break, reaching 2 consecutive wins after a losing streak of several consecutive defeats. At the moment he has 31 units in the general table, being his objective to fight to classify to the Europe League, since to sneak in the Champions is a very complicated task. As an added fact we tell you that the squad qualified for this round after leaving on the road to Ponferradina (1-0 defeat in the first leg and 3-0 victory in the round).
And finally we tell you that the “Yellow Submarine” has recorded unenthusiastic results playing away from home, after winning 4 games, match another 2 and lose the remaining 4 that disputed (10 goals scored and 14 received in his goal). Comes to beat 0-1 to Celta and to overcome 0-1 to Valencia in Mestalla for the domestic championship.
After reviewing the details of this match I play for the bet “plus 1.5 goals” due to the following reasons: First, because the two teams are even and can alternate possession and chances of goal. Remember that the place is orderly and rough, while the visit is well-organized and collective by nature. Second, because Leganés is a combative team in his field, despite losing some games to his people. Also remember that he has already overtaken the “Yellow Submarine” for the Santander League after winning 3-1. And third because Villarreal is a squad of good standing but somewhat unstable in defense, lacking equilibrium between attack and the brand.
