Leganes vs Alaves Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Match Leganes vs Alaves will open the new La Liga season – at Estadio Municipal de Butarque, the team who grappled for the survival in the top flight will face Alaves, one of the few teams that had a surprisingly good season. Kicking off with three points would be a huge morale boost for any of the two teams, so the both sides are expected to implement a cautious approach and wait for the opponent’s error.
Leganes finished the previous season just above the relegation zone, and most likely they will fight for the survival, too. They commenced their preseason with three victories against lower-league sides, but the problems started when Leganes took on the more serious sides, like Valladolid who beat them 1-0. They bounced back by beating Rayo Vallecano, and then they drew Alaves in the regular 90 minutes. In the last two preparatory matches, Leganes were bested by Atletico Madrid and CF Toledo.
Alaves were happy with a mid-table finish in the previous season. Their goal was to secure the survival, but quickly as the season progressed they realized they could even fight for one of the top seven positions. However, Alaves have a mountain to climb before reaching UEFA competitions, so this season they will aim another mid-table position. Also, the success in Copa del Rey where they were beaten in the final by Barcelona is a huge motivation for this team. Alaves’ preseason wasn’t as planned – only two victories against lower-league sides with mostly low-scoring draws and defeats.
In the previous campaign, the two sides drew both their meetings. At Estadio Municipal de Butarque Alaves snatched a point from a 1-1 draw, while Leganes were happy with a point from the 2-2 stalemate when they faced Alaves on the road.
