Leganes – Athletic Bilbao Match Prediction | 26-09-2019 13:00

Jimenez. Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao prediction comes ahead of the La Liga sixth-round game. In this match preview, I will try to provide the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on my analysis of these two teams. This game will be played on September 24th. My opinion is that both teams are quite evenly matched and that draw is on the cards here. The venue is Estadio Municipal de Butarque in Leganes. The referee in this game will be D.

The Basque outfit are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the Spanish top flight and we are positive that they will rely on their rock-solid defence in Wednesdays football match. Athletic Club will be aiming to build on a 2-0 win over Deportivo Alaves in the Basque derby when they face Leganes in the suburbs of Madrid on Matchday 6. The Lions continue with fine performances in the 2019/2020 season and they surely want to retain top position in the standings.

Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao Best Bet

Theyve only taken 5 points from their last 7 away matches in La Liga although 3 of them did come on this ground against Leganes last season, their only road win in six months. Athletic head into this game after yet another home win as they saw off Basque rivals Alaves. They remain unbeaten at San Mames in La Liga under Gaizka Garitano but their away record is far less convincing.

Roberto Rosales scored five goals in 72 games for Gent in the Belgian top flight and in the summer of 2010 he signed a three-year deal with Eredivisie side Twente. He quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Twente and you should bear in mind that he played 118 games in the Dutch elite division for the club. After making two appearances in the league for Caracas, the Venezuela international joined Belgian side Gent in 2007 and he played for De Buffalos until 2010.

Leganes will need to turn Butarque into something of a fortress again if they are going to haul themselves out of their current position but they were slow to get going last term and did ultimately beat the drop with considerable ease to secure their highest ever league finish. A solid performance and 1-1 draw at the Mestalla will certainly be a morale boost to Mauricio Pellegrinos men who lost their opening four fixtures. Most concerning of all, three of those games were at home where they are usually so strong.

Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao H2H Last Matches

Leganes have been in a thrilling form of late and the fact that they managed to hold star-studded Real Madrid to a draw in their last home fixture is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of the Basque outfit. Wednesdays football game at Estadio Municipal de Butarque pits together Leganes and Athletic Club, the two teams who are eyeing a place in European competitions.

A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Iker Muniain, who found the net in the 2-0 win over Alaves. Leganes, on the other hand, have collected only one point from possible 15 in the new La Liga campaign, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders.

Athletic de Bilbao used to play until 2012 in the San Mames stadium (also known as La Catedral). The club from Bilbao is playing in the highest Spanish division since its founded in 1928 and is next to Real Madrid and FC Barcelona for a longest period of time in the Primera Division. Athletic Club (mostly known as Athletic de Bilbao) is a Spanish football club from the Bask region which is playing currently in the Primera Division.

Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction

Both coaches are relatively cautious in their respective approaches and all the previous league meetings between the clubs at Butarque have produced either 0-0 or 1-0 scorelines. Theres always the chance that somebody might produce a moment of magic but a tight game of few chances looks likely and it wouldnt be a huge surprise if it ended in stalemate. Its very hard to see many goals in this game.

With Athletic Bilbao scoring just one goal so far in their outings and Leganes yet to find the back of the net here, expect no more than a goal or two at the most by the end of the ninety minutes. All of their last three head to head clashes here have been low scoring ones with under 2.5 goals on the charts.

Leganes, on the other hand, have collected only one point from possible 15 in the new La Liga campaign, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Iker Muniain, who found the net in the 2-0 win over Alaves.
