Valencia - Leganes

PICK: over 2,25 @2,14 SBO 5/10

Match between 13th and 16th placed team in Spanish La Liga will be played on Mestalla in Valencia and will start at 21:30 on Tusday.


Valencia is coming to the match after being defeated in Alaves. I need to admit that I expected little bit more from them, specially after being in front, but they lost and big win against Real Madrid is somehow in shadow. Today they will miss Orellana, Nani, Montoya, Rodrigo and Mina, all important players but they still have quality in the squad.

Leganes is coming to match after big win against Deportivo, who sacked their coach after 4-0 defeat. For Leganes that was first fin after 21th November 2016, and I believe that they will come on Mestalla with boosted morale, trying to surprise them. Besides, they were pretty close to snap the point also on Camp Nou one match before, but Messi scored from "penalty" and Barcelona won 2-1.

One crucial point of this match could be on the right side of Valencia, where Voro will probably start with Canello (Montoya who is first option for this position is injured). Cancello is pretty offensive wingback and I believe that his movement will be really high on the pitch, which means that Szymanowski who is in my opinion best individual of Leganes and used to play on left wing, will have lot of space in counter-attacks. Even if he won't play, Leganes is not afraid to play, and I am sure that they won't settle for goalless draw here and they will attack. Zaza has shown that he has quality and that Spanish league suits him and this match could be "easy" for him to add some goals on his account. First I was thinking about going straight on Valencia, but as I think that Leganes can score here, I will take option for goals. Besides, odds are too high in my opinion and I believe that we will see goals in this match.

FT: 1-0
