Levante vs Leganes Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
This Tuesday, Levante will host Leganes at the Estadi Ciutat de València. This is a clash between two sides from the lower part of the table, so it will be interesting to see how this one plays out and influences the look of that part of the league standings.
Levante are placed fifteenth at the table with seventeen accumulated points from three wins, eight draws, and five losses. They are on a four-game winless streak (two draws, two losses) and in the last round, they faced Sevilla. The final score was 0-0. Both sides had their chances but were unable to convert them into goals. In the second half, the tensions were high and the match got rough. Five yellow cards in the second half alone best picture that.
Leganes had a free week in the last round since their match against Real Madrid was postponed due to the World Club Cup. Leganes hold the number eleven spot at the table with twenty points and a negative goal difference of -2. In the previous weeks, they have been playing some of their worst football this year as they have lost four of the previous five games. Two weeks ago, they lost to Deportivo La Coruna by the score of 1-0. Adrian of Deportivo scored the only goal of the game mid-first half. Leganes need to change something about their game or they might risk losing this cozy spot in the middle of the table.
