Leganes is welcoming Granada to Estadio Municipal de Butarque in round 31 of Spanish LaLiga.
Leganes is not playing well this season and they are in 19th place with 24 points, in the relegation zone. Since the season restarted, Leganes has played three games, from which they lost 2, while their latest one ended in a draw. In that match against Mallorca on the road, Leganes was a much better team with 62% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, and 79% of the correct passes. Despite being the better team here, Leganes was losing since the 9th minute, but they were able to tie the game in 87th minute and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. Leganes has scored only 23 goals in 30 games this season while conceding 44 goals. Leganes isn’t that far from the safety in LaLiga, only 5 points, but for them to get outside the relegation zone, Leganes must start scoring more goals. Oscar has scored 9 goals for Leganes this season, while Braithwaite who doesn’t play there anymore, scored 6 goals. Szymanowski is injured, while Siovas is still questionable. It doesn’t matter who is Leganes playing against, the schedule is never easy for them, but there is enough time for them to make something out of this season and to stay in LaLiga.
Granada was in a good form before the season was paused, and that form continued since the restart, but Granada has lost their last game against Villarreal. Granada was solid in that game with 50% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 76% of the correct passes. After falling behind in the 11th minute, Granada wasn’t able to score a goal and they lost this game 0-1. Overall, not a bad season for Granada where they are safe far outside the relegation zone, in 10th place with 42 points, but I think this is their maximum and despite being close to the Europa League, I don’t see it happening for Granada this season. Fernandez has scored 7 goals for Granada this season, while Machis added 6 goals. Victor Diaz has added 5 assists. Martinez, Quini, Lozano, and Gonalons are injured, while Montoro, Soldado, and Jose Antonio Martinez are questionable. Granada has scored a decent amount of goals this season, 37, while they conceded 36 goals, which isn’t bad, but Granada isn’t the team that will just go out and attacks anyone they are playing against, Granada doesn’t have that kind of quality, and for that reason, I think Granada will slide down a few places, but still stay in LaLiga next season.
The home team has dominated this matchup between Leganes and Granada, and of the 5 games, they played in the past, non of them ended in a draw. When these two teams meet, we don’t see a lot of goals, and the games are tight, and I expect the same here. I have a feeling we might see the first draw in this matchup.
