Leganes vs Valladolid Predictions

  • Each of Leganes’s last two home matches in La Liga finished as draws.
  • Both teams have scored in four of Real Valladolid’s previous five league games.
  • A combined 11 of Leganes and Real Valladolid’s matches have finished 1-1 in La Liga this season.

Shot-shy nature of both sides points to stalemate

While Leganes are in the drop zone going into the La Liga restart, Real Valladolid are not clear of relegation themselves and we’re predicting it will be difficult to separate at Butarque.

A lack of quality in the final third continues to fluster visitors Valladolid, who have lost three of their last five contests and have netted more than one goal in only one of their last eight contests.

Spanish striker Sergi Guardiola is the club’s top scorer with only six goals in all competitions and failure to see off lowly Leganes could drag them closer to danger.

But goals have also been a problem for hosts Leganes, who have failed to score in 12 of their 27 matches this season – only Mallorca (13) have drawn blanks in more games.

Leganes have looked solid at the back

Their home contests have featured an average of 2.29 goals per game while Valladolid’s away contests have seen 2.07 per match, indicating that this could be a low-scoring encounter.

While both sides have been faltering in the final third, their defensive records have been mediocre.

Leganes, although in the bottom three, have conceded fewer goals than the likes of Real Betis, Levante and Eibar above them and the same number as European-chasing Valencia.

As for Valladolid, their tally of 33 goals conceded in 27 matches is the lowest in La Liga’s bottom half.

With both sides fairly sturdy at the back but often unable to polish off opponents, backing a stalemate could be the way to go.

Expect both teams to play with caution

They have drawn 19 matches between them in La Liga this season and the reverse fixture at the Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla back in January finished 2-2.

With both sides perhaps taking time to readjust to the intensity of La Liga, their upcoming contest may not see quite as many goals and 1-1 could in fact be the best bet in terms of a correct score prediction.

Leganes have drawn 1-1 on five occasions this season while Valladolid have drawn 1-1 with Villarreal, Valencia, Athletic Bilbao, Granada, Osasuna and Real Madrid in the league this term.

Both clubs look set for a challenging final 11 fixtures in La Liga and, as the two sides continue their fight for survival, they may approach this game eager to avoid defeat rather than go out and claim maximum points, enhancing appeal about the draw.
