Reason For Leganes vs Alaves Betting Tips

This first match this weekend in La Liga comes from Butarque on Friday night. It’s a big one for the visitors who would take top spot for 24 hours at least with a win. Alaves have already occupied that position in what is turning into a remarkable season for the Basque club. Leganes were the surprise package this time twelve months ago but they currently sit in the bottom three and will be motivated by the possibility of climbing out of the drop-zone here.

It’s not a great surprise to see Leganes struggling. They sold arguably their best player in the summer in the shape of Gabriel Pires and didn’t do a great deal to add quality to their squad. Mauricio Pellegrino was always going to have a big job on his hands but will take some comfort from his side’s home displays as he prepares to lock horns with the club he successfully managed two seasons ago.

There were briefly a couple of coaches in between him and current Alaves boss Abelardo but neither lasted long. Abelardo has built on the fine job Pellegrino did, with arguably a weaker squad at his disposal and if this fine run goes on for much longer, talk of Alaves mounting a European challenge won’t be too far-fetched.

This is quite a tough one to call and it’s certainly a little bit strange to see Leganes such clear favourites with the bookies, given they currently sit 13 points and 14 places below their opponents. Leganes have performed pretty well in recent weeks but even so they are without a win in 5 matches coming into this and have only won twice all season, with one of those games against struggling Rayo.

Alaves seem to thrive on the underdog tag so it won’t bother them one bit that the bookies still don’t seem convinced by them. They’ve already won a tough Friday night game in Vigo this season to move into 1st place and many teams would buckle under that kind of pressure. Alaves have avoided defeat in 75% of their league games this term and have an excellent record of 6 wins from their last 10 away matches in La Liga. They kept a clean sheet in all but one of those victories and up against a Leganes side that has the joint 2nd worst goal-scoring record in the division, they should fancy this.

Overall backing Alaves or Draw Double Chance could be the way to go here while going for an Away Win could be worth a punt at long odds, given Alaves’ impressive recent away record.
