Valencia (2) vs Leganes (7)
Valencia are maybe the biggest positive surprise in Spain so far with a total record of 7-3-0 and 27-11 in goal difference. This is very impressing, and its important to remember that they already have met teams like Real Madrid (3), Atlético Madrid (4), Real Sociedad (9), Athletic (15) & Sevilla (5). They have won 6 straight matches now, and are coming from 2-1 away win vs Alaves (20) last round. Valencia didn’t play very good here, but winning matches on bad days are important to stay in the top of the league. One thing is for sure, that match would have been lost last season. Last home match ended with a 4-0 win vs Sevilla (5). The team are getting Dani Parejo back from suspension today. No reported missings for the hosts.
Leganes, maybe the second biggest positive surprise in the league. They have started much better than expected with a total record of 5-2-3 and 9-5 in goal difference. If this continues their finish at 17th last season (4 points above relegation) will be crushed, thats for sure. After 2 straight victories, 0-2 vs Malaga (19) & 1-0 vs Athletic (15), they lost their last match away vs Sevilla ending 2-1 last round. Even though they only lost that match with 1 goal, it could have been with 2 or 3 to be honest. Leganes will miss 2 very important players here; key midfielder Ruben Perez are suspended & striker Nordin Amrabat won’t play. Also midfielder Omar Ramos will be missed most likely.
* The teams met 4 times last season, 2 in the league & 2 in the Copa del Rey
* Valencia won all 4 matches
I expect Valencia to win this match and continue their great run of victories. They are not missing any important players, and their strikers Rodrigo & Zaza are in great shape at the moment. A win here will give them a gap of 7 points down to Real Madrid (3) & Atletico Madrid (4) and put pressure on Barcelona (1). Leganes can’t expect to get anything from this match, they lost last time vs Sevilla (5), and its fair to say that Valencia look much better than Sevilla at the moment. Home win are expected for a team who doesn't seem to have problems in getting goals scored.
