Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Levante and Leganes go head to head at Estadi Ciutat de Valencia in the opening match of La Liga 2 round 26. Los Levantinos aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Espanyol and their fine run at home ground is certainly fuelling fans with optimism ahead of Friday’s clash. Javi Calleja’s troops have recorded three wins in the previous four home games, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Both Giorgi Kochorashvili and Fabricio Santos are sidelined with injuries.
The capital club, on the other hand, are eager to retain top position in the standings. Leganes, though, failed to impress in a goalless draw with Real Valladolid, which is probably the main reason why we are going to place our bets on draw. January signings Darko Brasanac and Juan Cruz could play some part in Friday’s clash.

The pacey full back made 37 appearances for the club in the 2008/2009 season and at the end of the campaign he signed a deal with Serie A side Udinese.
