Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Leganes have been having their ups and downs of late. The newcomers did well to beat Deportivo La Coruna at Estadio Municipal de Riazor on Matchday 5 and following a 2-1 loss to Valencia the team defeated Granada on the road in their last league match. Leganes welcome Sevilla at their Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Saturday afternoon and it remains to be seen if los Sevillanos are capable of putting an end to their 22-game winless run on the travels, speaking of La Liga games. Jorge Sampaoli’s men recorded a hard-fought win over Alaves on Matchday 7, but given their poor away record, the visitors are unlikely to pick up all three points from Saturday’s clash. Leganes have been producing fine performances in the 2016/2017 season and, taking everything into account, we predict that the newcomers are going to share the spoils with the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan outfit on Saturday.
