Valencia – Leganes Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 10:00

They are always tough to play against at Butarque though and are unbeaten in 11 matches at home heading into this one. Mauricio Pellegrino is doing a pretty good job with the Madrid club, although they do come into this one following a rare off day, a 3-0 defeat at Real Sociedad last time out. They are a team that knows their limitations but it increasingly looks like they will be playing in the Primera Division for the 4th consecutive season next term.

The capital club made a very slow start to the season and we are positive that they are going to return to the suburbs of Madrid empty-handed. failed to impress in the defeat to the title holders at Camp Nou, but they are definitely capable of beating the rock-bottom side at their Estadio de Mestalla. Rodrigo and Co. You should bear in mind that Leganes are after their first ever win over Valencia in La Liga.

That was a minor concern at one stage when they could barely get anything going earlier in the campaign. Valencia no longer have anything to worry about in terms of their survival in this league. They saw off Celtic in Europe with minimal fuss and are currently fighting in two cup competitions, while they are also back in with an outside shot of a top four finish in La Liga. However they have gradually eased their way back towards form and suddenly things are looking a lot brighter.

The pressure will be on the hosts here but Leganes simply cant afford for this four game losing streak to extend much longer given they are already 4 points off safety. Guido Carrillo is one of those returning players who is stepping up his fitness bid and hes an option here should Lega want to play with a target man in attack. They arent likely to make radical changes though against a Valencia side who may recall the likes of Maxi Gomez, Goncalo Guedes and Ferran Torres for this game.

Leganes will be aiming to use any discontent to their advantage but they head to the Mestalla as the only team in the division yet to pick up a point. All eyes will be on the Mestalla on Sunday with some form of demonstration against the clubs ownership at least possible following the clubs sacking of Marcelino. It has been a very busy week at Valencia, starting with a meeting in Singapore and culminating in a victory in London that may just ease some of the anger on the terraces here.

He would have been thrilled with the outcome at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night and Valencia now look in a strong position to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League. Valencia will certainly be expected to win the game as Albert Celades looks to stamp his authority on this squad. Theyve only picked up one win so far in La Liga though, that coming in Marcelinos last game at home to Mallorca.

That would put them in a real position of comfort as we head towards the end of the campaign. This Sundays game sees Valencia looking to extend a decent recent run of results in La Liga. They travel to Butarque to take on Leganes, who would actually move level on points with Los Che were they to win the game.

Valencia remain La Ligas draw specialists with a huge 58% of their league games this term ending level and this in truth has all the makings of a repeat. They were able to rest players in both legs of the tie with the Scottish champions so fatigue shouldnt be a major factor here, although they have played two games per week throughout 2019 so far.

Indeed, Celades men snatched all three points in Champions League win over Chelsea (0-1) on Tuesday and we now expect them just as motivated. Los Che have beaten Mallorca (2-0) ahead of the International break and while theyve failed to challenge Barcelona after it, suffering a comfortable 5-2 loss at Camp Nou, we feel they will be in a good mood now.

They have some injuries, but they are not long term. They are currently last in the league and are desperate to earn some points here. Leganess team is slightly changed from the last year, but their goal stays the same. That is, of course, to avoid being relegated. Leganes has lost all 4 games they played. Their coach Pellegrino has around 15-17 players who can play in starting 11 most of the time. Before this season opener, where Osasuna won against them, they have had a 7 game streak, where they did not lose a game.

The Russian footballer is capable of operating on either wing or through the middle, and he has proved to be quite prolific in terms of both goals and assists. Chersyhev has been in and out of the Russia national team since making his debut in 2012, but there is a good chance he will become an important member of Sbornaya Komanda as soon as he secures regular playing time at club level.
