Our football match prediction:
Sevilla continue to impress under Jorge Sampaoli. Los Sevillanos are on the right track to book their place in the Champions League group stages, but they are in the race for the title as well. The Andalusian outfit occupy third position in the La Liga standings ahead of the visit of Leganes and seeing that they have been impressive at their Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan this term, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football game. Thanks to Darwin Machis’ late goal Leganes defeated Granada in the relegation six-pointer at the weekend and they are now five points clear of bottom three in the La Liga table. The capital club, though, face an uphill task in the game against Sevilla and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to grab something from the match. Vitolo has overcome his injury and the Spain international is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders.
Highligted Player (Wissam Ben Yedder):
Wissam Ben Yedder was born in Sarcelles, France on 12 August, 1990, but he has yet to make his France debut at senior level. The 170-cm-tall striker, though, played three games for France U21 team and he made two appearances for France Futsal team as well. Ben Yedder began his club career at UJA Alfortville and he moved to Toulouse in 2010. After scoring 63 goals in 156 league appearances for les Pitchouns, the pacey attacker joined La Liga side Sevilla on 30 July, 2016. Wissam Ben Yedder made his Sevilla debut on 14 August, 2016 in a 2-0 loss to Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup. The former Toulouse forward scored his first goal in the Spanish top flight in Sevilla’s 6-4 win over Espanyol in the opening match of the 2016/2017 season. Ben Yedder started his youth career at Garges-les-Gonesse and he played for the Saint-Denis at the start of his football career as well. You should bear in mind that Ben Yedder is Toulouse’s best scorer of the 21st century.
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.
