Leganes vs Valladolid Prediction & Betting tips
In its own Butarque, Leganes will play against Real Valladolid on Thursday evening. Both teams focus on retention, although the pressure is clearly on the visitors.
Leganes took an advance on retention last weekend by cleverly winning 0-2 against Champions League candidate and fellow townman Getafe. With only nine duels to go, the Madrilenians are six places and eight points above the relegation zone, so it must be very strange if Los Pepineros is still in trouble. “I’m very proud,” said trainer Mauricio Pellegrino. “This is a team that gives everything for every match, for the shirt and for the fans.”
It is indeed a great achievement from Leganes, which again shows this season that with a healthy dose of zest for work you can make it a long way in a top competition such as La Liga. The blues and whites are therefore not dependent on the specific qualities of one or two players, but must primarily depend on their team spirit. The fact that Pellegrino cannot rely on his regular striker Martin Braithwaite (suspended) and Youssef En-Nesyri (injured) on Thursday evening will therefore not be used as an excuse in the Butarque if things go wrong against Real Valladolid.
PhD student Real Valladolid was one of the tastemakers of the first half of the season, but in recent months the club of chairman Ronaldo has had a very difficult time. The Purple & White’s lead over the relegation zone has shrunk to just two points, so they are heading for a blood-curdling end of the competition.
Four points from the last two rounds gave the team of trainer Sergio a much needed boost. After the handsome 1-2 away win against Eibar, El Pucela was also home to Real Sociedad last weekend. However, Real Valladolid had to settle for a 1-1 draw, because the VAR decided to reject a pure Kiko Olivas goal just in time. Incredibly acidic, although Sergio remained positive: “We have remained unbeaten again.” Nevertheless, the coach will certainly have cursed a lot internally, because a tough assignment awaits him on Thursday evening. In addition, he has to miss several key holders with Enes Ünal, Anuar Mohamed and Toni Villa.
