Villarreal vs Leganes – Copa del Rey: Villareal is a team that plays very well in Spain
Always having interesting rosters and normally fighting for the European spots.
They are a good team, with good players and good individual talent.
Right now, they are well within the objectives in all competitions, being on the European qualification zone in the league and still in the Europa League and on this Copa del Rey, although they will have to reverse the tie here, since they lost 1-0 at Leganés.
After that match where they lost, Villarreal hosted and drew with Deportivo La Coruña 1-1 at home in La Liga.
On this match, we should expect a strong starting line-up from Villarreal in order to reverse this result, otherwise they will be out of Copa del Rey. Leganés is a team that is making a comfortable campaign and accomplishing the suggested objectives well.
On this roster, there aren’t any big stars or players that really stand out individually, so it is a team that is worth more for their collective value.
Right now, they are in good form, because they have won their last 3 matches, including the Copa del Rey match against Villarreal (1-0), and they haven’t’ conceded goals for 3 matches.
On the past weekend, they hosted and defeated Real Sociedad by 1-0, getting 3 important points against a tough opponent. Leganés is looking to defend their advantage and the tie at Villarreal.
Villarreal vs Leganes – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Villareal, being on a disadvantage, will be the team that will have to take more risks and go on the attack in this match. Leganés is a tricky team, because they have been defending well and presenting solid defences.
They are in a good moment of form and they surely won’t expose themselves too much in Villarreal. The Yellow Submarine should have the initiative and try to impose a stronger rhythm and high pace since the beginning of the match.
I expect here not a one-way match but with more offensive thrust from Villarreal, who will try to score at any cost to at least draw this tie.
Villareal has good players from the midfield forward and therefore I think that the 1st half might be interesting and with goals, so that’s what I expect.
