Leganes vs Alaves Prediction & Betting tips
Whether Leganes is winning or not, it’s Saturday’s party at Butarque. The Madrids were definitely safe last week, something at the beginning of the season that nobody dreamed of. Opponent Alaves looks forward to the Spanish Cup final with a slanted eye.
Leganes has fought it. The Madrilenen, who made their debut this season in the Primera Division, picked up a point at Athletic Bilbao (1-1) and thereby secured a new football year at the highest level. A fantastic achievement, which was quite rightly celebrated as a championship. Hats off for trainer Asier Garitano, who managed to save with minimal resources. Los Pepineros were injured several times by injuries – just before the winter break, there were even 13 to 14 fiddle players – but the blue whites never gave up. “Hopefully, this retention is the first step towards more beautiful moments,” said Garitano.
The pressure is now from the boiler for Leganes, which of course hopes that the fans will be able to deliver a nice victory in the final game. Leganes has been the hallmark of work and struggle throughout the season, so I expect that Saturday night will not be different. With seven points in the last four rounds, the main members are in any case busy with a beautiful series.
Probable setup of Leganes
Herrerin; Marin, Siovas, Mantovani, Tito; Timor, Ruben Perez; Szymanowski, Gabriel, El Zhar; Guerrero
Alaves was of course long and wide safe. With a ninth place and a guaranteed place in the left-hand row, the Basques can look back on an excellent race in the Primera Division. The season can be even more beautiful, because next week, El Glorioso is in the Spanish Cup final against none other than FC Barcelona. The chance of a stunt is of course tiny, but since Leicester City’s fairy tale we can not exclude anything.
The upcoming cup final will prompt for a cargo queuing questionnaire for the coming weekend. Does Pellegrino trainer visit Leganes on his base or will he rotate? I suspect it’s the last one. Last weekend (Celta de Vigo-home: 3-1) the blue whites already played with a mix of basic players and reserves. However, that was in their own Mendizorroza, where they naturally felt morally obliged to entertain the public as a home club. In an outing against a team that is already safe, you can of course afford it to be easier to rotate. The only reason why Pellegrino might want to go on full war is the fact that Alaves could possibly rank or drop another rank. Indeed, that has repercussions for the TV money. However, it seems to me more logical to rest your baseball players in the run-up to the cup finals, even though we have to wait until the end of the run, what the visitors actually put in their shield.
Probable setup Alaves
Ortola; Raul Garcia, Feddal, Laguardia, Vigaray; Krsticic, Torres; Katai, Romero, Sobrino; Santos
