Leganes will play against Alaves on Friday, seeking their first La Liga win since the 6th October. Leganes didn’t start the season in the best way and currently stands on 18th place with ten points after twelve rounds. ‘Los Pepineros’ have just two since the start of the season, although they came at home against strong sides like Barcelona and Rayo Vallecano. Leganes have problems when playing away, where Mauricio Pellegrino’s side got just two points from the first seven visits.
Their opponents, Alaves, are on the other side of the story. Abelardo Fernandez’s side is the surprise of the season in La Liga. After back-to-back impressive results and wins against better teams, Alaves stands on 4th place, just a point behind league leaders Barcelona. ‘Babazorros’ have three wins and three losses away from home but two of them were against teams from the top of the table – Barcelona and Levante.
Under the management of Abelardo Fernandez’s, Alaves shows a lot of progress. ‘Babazorros’ failed to score away from only at ‘Camp Nou’. I expect more of the same and don’t doubt that Alaves will score against Leganes. The hosts have a lot of problems in defence, but at home, they can be dangerous, too. Leganes scored in all games in front of their fans since the start of the season and Alaves will not go home with a clean sheet. I will back Both Teams to Score, with Draw 1-1 Correct Score.
