Leganes and Real Valladolid will lock horns at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque, with the home side looking to maintain their 100% success rate in competitive home H2Hs (W4).
The hosts had managed to bring a four-game winless La Liga (LL) run to a halt (D2, L2) just before the coronavirus outbreak halted the season in Spain, but they still sit three points adrift of 17th-placed Celta Vigo. Arguably the weakest attacking side in Spain’s top-tier, Los Pepineros (21) have not only scored fewer goals than any other LL team so far, but they’ve also notched up over 1.5 goals per match only twice in their last eight league games. The ‘clean-sheet theme’ will be of the essence here, given that six of Leganes’ 11 LL home results (win/loss) this term have seen the winner on the shut out the losing side (W2, L4).
The visitors had also endured torrid times before the pandemic brought their misery to an end (W1, L3), as they hold a four-point lead over 18th-placed Mallorca ahead of the kick-off. For Valladolid, goals have been at a premium lately, as they’ve bagged over 1.5 goals only once in their last eight league outings. In turn, Los Pucelanos have drawn a blank in five of their nine previous LL road trips, hitting the net precisely once per game in the other four. If they manage to score here, Sergio Gonzalez’s men are likely to do it after the break, considering that seven of their nine LL away goals scored thus far arrived in the second half of play (78%).
