Another exciting round of matches from the top-flight of Spanish football starts here with this tie that carries an 8.00pm kick-off time on Friday night. Here are our top Sevilla v Leganes betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
Sevilla would leapfrog rivals Getafe into the top-four places with a win in front of their own fans, boosting their chances of landing a Champions League slot at the conclusion of the campaign. They set-up with a season record showing 16 wins, seven draws and a dozen defeats and have won three of their last five. There’s confidence in the home dressing room and they’ll be roared on by a large audience on Friday, fans knowing just what’s at stake here.
Despite Sevilla holding their own at the top-end of the table they do take on this challenge having suffered defeat last time out and that was their second loss in three games as nerves begin to creep in during the closing stages. They hammered Rayo Vallecano 5-0 last month, as was expected, but ended on the wrong side of a 1-0 away to Girona to end April on a low, a result that knocked the wind from their sails. Bookies expect them to bounce back at the first time of asking and there’s no more than 2/5 at Bet365 on a Sevilla cheer.
Nothing to Play For
Leganes go into this game with not a lot to play for and that is shown by their recent results with the visitors seen stumbling to the finish line. They have suffered a poor campaign and seem to be feeling sorry for themselves down in the bottom-half of the division. There’s no change of them being dragged into the relegation troubles going on below but their dip in form is surprising as they still have a chance of finishing in the top-eight sides in La Liga. We thought that would’ve been enough to hold their focus. Leganes are short-changing fans and we’re sure they’ll hear about it.
Stuck on a miserable winless run, the visitors have drawn three and lost two of their last five but each of those defeats came in the three games to end April and it looks like all the ambition has been knocked out of this team at present. Will they prove us wrong and rally back to upset the odds and secure a return to winning ways against a decent opponent? We don’t think so and are not in the least bit interested by the chunky 7/1 offered at Unibet about an away day. A nice price, of course, but their form makes it one best avoided.
