Villarreal vs Leganes Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips: Villarreal to take three points in race for Europe against struggling Leganes

16:15 Saturday 22 April 2017

Villarreal have been impressive at home this season, despite recently losing at La Ceramica against Eibar, with Leganes struggling to find the back of the net and wins of late.

Match Preview

The away side conceded a stoppage-time goal to lose 1-0 against Espanyol last week, with the point they almost snatched proving costly to their attempts to propel themselves away from the LaLiga relegation zone.

    - Villarreal 2-3 Eibar
    - Real Betis 0-1 Villarreal
    - Villarreal 3-1 Athletic Bilbao
    - Alaves 2-1 Villarreal

A recent 3-1 victory over Athletic Bilbao showed what Villarreal can do on home soil, against one of their rivals for a European finish. After Victor Ruiz’s red card in that game, he is still missing due to a ban.

Leganes have lost their last three consecutive LaLiga clashes, which leaves them sitting just five points above the drop zone with six games of the season left to play.

    - Real Sociedad 1-1 Leganes
    - Leganes 2-4 Real Madrid
    - Osasuna 2-1 Leganes
    - Leganes 0-1 Espanyol

Villarreal vs Leganes Prediction and Betting Advice

Leganes are unlikely to make many changes from their last outing, as they almost scraped a point from Espanyol, while Villarreal have Roberto Soldado to count upon again after suspension.

Fran Escriba’s men are very good at home, while Leganes have struggled to score goals and win games for love nor money in recent weeks. The Yellow Submarine should take three comfortable points.
