Leganés vs Valladolid – Copa del Rey -: In one of the matches that will open this 2nd leg of Copa del Rey matches…
Of the round of 16, the home side Leganés and the visiting side Valladolid will meet, near Madrid, at the Estádio Municipal de Butarque,
on a match of the 2nd leg that will decide who advances to the next round, after both teams having faced off in October, on a match that finished with a 1-2 in favour of Leganés at Valladolid’s stadium.
Leganés has been making a quality campaign, sitting on a comfortable 11th place (although they were better at some point, that’s certain), still having a considerable advantage to the relegation zone.
Still, the team is coming off a less positive streak of results, getting 4 consecutive defeats in La Liga, that can also be explained by their opponents’ quality (Sevilla, Valencia and Barcelona, for example).
In any way, the team has everything in their favour to advance in the competition, given the advantage they brought from the 1st leg.
As for Valladolid, they are making a balanced campaign, within their possibility, sitting on a mid-table position on the Segunda División and still having real chances to reach a possible promotion spot.
The team is coming off a less positive moment of form, only having won once since the beginning of October, only getting 1 win on their last 9 matches.
Leganés vs Valladolid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Given the advantage of Leganés, who was able to score 2 goals away from home,
I think that the team can use their relatively positive defensive record (before this negative streak, the team had only conceded 3 or 4 goals, which is remarkable) and opt to give their opponents the initiative, using a more defensive approach.
This way, I see a more closed match without many goals.
