Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought win over Alaves in the Basque derby, Osasuna will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Leganes. Osasuna recorded their first win after the layoff, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Los Rojillos aim to climb to the top half of the table, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Saturday’s showdown.
Keep in mind, though, that defensive midfielder Oier is sidelined through suspension. Leganes, on the other hand, failed to turn their dominance into goals in a draw with Granada. The capital club are eager to escape the relegation zone, but they will have to do it without suspended duo Unai Bustinza – Kevin Rodrigues. Seeing that Guido Carrillo suffered a serious injury against Granada, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Osasuna.
Highlighted Player (Roberto Torres):
After scoring 23 goals in 132 appearances for Osasuna B, Roberto Torres made his first-team debut on 11 December 2011. He came as a substitute in a 1-1 draw with Malaga, but he played no more than two league games for los Rojillos in the 2011/2012 La Liga campaign. However, he was making progress year by year and he made 42 appearances for Osasuna in the 2015/2016 Segunda Division campaign.
Roberto Torres is one of the players who helped the team secure promotion to Primera Division and it has to be noted that the midfielder scored 12 goals in the 2015/2016 season.
Roberto Torres’ contract with Osasuna expires in 2018. The 178-cm-tall player was born in Pamplona, on 7 March, 1989. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a central midfielder as well. He scored his first goal in Primera Division in a 2-4 loss to Real Madrid in the 2012/2013 campaign.
Highlighted Team (Leganes):
Leganes are a Spanish football club that have mostly been playing in lower leagues. Los Pepineros play their home games at Batarque (Madrid) and the capacity of the stadium is just 8,138. Leganes secured their promotion to the Spanish La Liga for the first time ever in 2016 and, no doubt, that is considered the club’s biggest success.
Leganes’ bitterest rivals are fellow capital club Getafe and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the South Madrid derby.
The colour of the team’s home kit is white and blue, whilst their away kits are green. The likes of Pierre Webo, Samuel Eto’o, Ivan Zarandona, Jose Chamot, Catanha, Ruben Falcon, Jordi Lardin and Pedro Lago are famous players who were part of the Batarque outfit in the past. Lady Maria Victoria Pavon is the first female president in the history of the club and she has been in charge of the club since 2009.
