Espanyol will be looking to put their La Liga campaign back on track when they host Leganes at the RCDE Stadium on Friday night. Espanyol have been beaten 1-0 on the road at Atletico Madrid in the last round of 2018, although they had a better ball possession and more goal attempts than the hosts. Meanwhile, Leganes threw away a one-goal lead following Mikel Vesga’s early strike to only register a 1-1 home draw against Sevilla. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Espanyol have been terrible over the past two months, having lost each of their last six league outings. Sandwiched in-between these results, the Catalans managed a narrow 1-0 home victory against Cadiz in the Copa del Rey. They currently sit 14th in the standings, although they are six points clear of the bottom three. Espanyol used to be a strong side on home soil, but their recent form has seen them lose the most recent three La Liga fixtures.
Leganes, on the other hand, come into this clash on the back of a nine-game unbeaten streak across all competitions. However, it has to be said that Leganes drew five of their last six league outings. Away from home, Leganes are undefeated in four competitive trips at the moment, but overall, they have only won two of their last ten away fixtures.
Although Espanyol are on a dreadful run of form at the moment, they used to be a solid side on home soil and we fancy them to get back to winning ways here. Our betting tips and predictions expect Espanyol to win at odds 1.95.
