Date: on the 04th of January, 2019 (Friday)
Match start: 21:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Primera División. La Liga.
The 18th round of the Spanish La Liga consists of the match between two teams which are near the relegation zone – Espanyol and Leganes.
Budgerigars are doing not very well lately as they have lost 6 times and their attack is weak. Also the football players make a lot of mistakes in defense. Meanwhile, the White and Blue have scored only 3 goals, having missed 16 times and 10 matches were the home games. Even the home stadium doesn’t help Espanyol.
The Cucumber Growers after a long series without victories haven’t lost last 6 matches. They not only have left the relegation zone but also have made a small breakdown from the dangerous line.
3 wins and 2 neutral outcomes allowed Leganes to find a reason for hope to keep the place in the elite of the Spanish football.
It became possible thanks to the qualitative improvement of the Mauricio Pellegrino’s team game. The team improved defense and in 4 last matches that were spent in 2018, Leganes has missed only 3 points.
Bearing in mind all that was mentioned we can assume that the guests have all chances to gain one point in frames of the away match and improve their tournament position.
Though, it will be hard to achieve this as Espanyol is very angry because of 6 losses in a row. A
lso we doubt that the mistakes in defense will disappear.
