Reason For Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao Predictions

Bottom of the table Leganes will host top of the table Athletic Club in this Wednesday evening La Liga fixture. These sides have experienced very different starts to the season. However, their respective league positioning doesn’t tell the entire story of this game.

Form is one thing, but these teams are much closer in quality than it appears. Leganes finished just 8 points behind Athletic Club last season. Leganes also outspent Athletic Club during the summer. Leganes net expenditure ended up at 17.5 million pounds. Meanwhile Athletic Club brought in no players during the summer transfer window.

Games between these two sides in recent times have always been quite closely contested affairs. There has been under 2.5 goals scored in 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two sides.

On top of that, there has been a total of 2 goals scored over Leganes’ last 3 home matches vs Athletic Club. We believe that we are ultimately unlikely to see too many goals scored in this fixture.

Leganes’ home form has not been great this season. They are yet to score a single goal at home in the 2019/20 campaign. Their goal scoring issues haven’t just started this season either. Leganes have failed to score in their last 6 home La Liga matches, a run which stretches into last season.

Neutrals shouldn’t hold out much hope for Athletic Club to carry the goal scoring load for this game either. Their position at the top of the table has been earned mainly through their defensive efforts.

Athletic Club have scored just 6 goals from their opening 5 games. However, they have conceded just one goal this season. There has been under 2.5 goals scored in Athletic Club’s last 6 games.

Given these teams’ recent history, we believe that an under 2.5 goals bet is a good shout for this fixture.

Athletic Club are far from untouchable, despite their current league position. Their recent away form has been unimpressive. They have drawn both of their away games this season, and scored just 1 away goal.

Athletic Club’s poor away form runs into the previous La Liga season. They have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 away games.

Wednesday’s fixture provides Athletic Club with an opportunity to begin to improve their away form. Leganes are similarly poor when playing at home. They have lost their last 4 home matches.

We feel that a single goal could be the deciding goal in Wednesday’s fixture. Given recent form, we feel that goal could fall to Athletic Club. As well as recent form and current league position, Athletic Club have won their last 3 games vs Leganes.

Athletic Club have kept a clean sheet in their last 3 matches. We feel that they will likely keep another on Wednesday. We feel that Athletic Club will manage to secure a 1-0 away win vs Leganes.
