Las Palmas - Leganes

PICK: Las Palmas AH -0,50 @1,826 PINNACLE 6/10

Match between 10th and 15th placed team of La Liga Santander, will be played on Saturday at 18:30 on Estadio de Gran Canaria in Las Palmas.


Las Palmas is playing good football and everyone who are following my analysis knows, that I like they're style. They're playing with possession, with lots of short passes, creating good chances, and with they're style they will be all over the pitch on Saturday. After 3 draws in row at home, they won last two home matches against Eibar and Bilbao, and specially with win over Bilbao, they proved that they have the power and strength on this stadium. Araujo and Aythami are slightly injured but should be fit for the match, while Castellano is still out. 

I was writing about Leganes as well. They're main concern is that they're playing without two main offensive players - Szymanovski and Ibañez. Both are injured, but unfortunately for Leganes they are not the only absentees for this match as Rico and Koné are injured as well. Without Szymanovski and Ibañez they didn't score not even one goal in last three matches, but conceded 10 of them. 

We'll see ball mostly in legs of Las Palmas. I expect more then 60% of it in they're possession. I believe that they will create enough chances to beat Leganes with handicap, but I will go with straight win this time, as odds are nice enough. It's true that Leganes will try with 5 defenders and with ultra defensive style, but they're problem is that many times, this 5 man defence is tearing apart, as some of them are leaving they're positions, trying to help in attack zone, and then they're positioning at defending counter-attacks is just too poor and they're conceding easily. They stayed focused on defence against Villarreal, but I believe that they won't pay that much of respect to Las Palmas, which will cost them all three points..

FT: 1-1
