Leganes and Villarreal will be facing each other at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Sunday at lunchtime, with both sides still looking for their first victory of the new La Liga season. Leganes were thrashed 4-1 on the road at Real Madrid last time out in La Liga, with their consolation goal being scored by Guido Carrillo from the spot. Meanwhile, Villarreal have suffered a disappointing 0-1 home loss against Girona despite the fact they had an overwhelming 63% ball possession. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Leganes have lost two and drawn one of their first three La Liga fixtures, collecting their sole point from a 2-2 home stalemate against Real Sociedad in Week 2. This leaves them in 18th position in the standings tied on just one point with their Sunday’s opponents. The only positive thing is that Leganes are now back on home soil where they have lost just once in the last six league fixtures.
Villarreal have also endured a terrible start to the season, as they are yet to win after three rounds. They did well to managed a nil-nil draw on the road at Sevilla towards the end of August, but they lost unexpectedly at the hands of Girona at home two weeks ago. Away from home, the Yellow Submarine have lost just once in the last four trips, including their goalless draw at Sevilla last time out on the road.
With both sides in such poor shape this season, it’s pretty difficult to predict the outcome of this game. Leganes looked pretty solid at home over the past few months and we fancy them to secure at least a draw here. Our betting tips and predictions would back Leganes Draw No Bet at odds 2.10.
