CD Leganes vs Deportivo Alaves – Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips

Leganes host Deportivo Alaves at the Municipal de Butarque hoping for a better campaign than the La Liga 16/17. Leganes were able to avoid relegation in the last few weeks of the season, and the club finished one place above the relegation zone. Deportivo Alaves were one of the surprise packages of the 16/17 Spanish league campaign. The club finished in the top 10 after being promoted from the second division. Yet, the club witnessed manager Mauricio Pellegrino opting to leave the club and he has been replaced by Luis Zubeldia.

CD Leganes vs Deportivo Alavés – Betting Tips for the game

The pre-season witnessed Leganes managing wins and defeats in equal measure. The club has been relatively active in the transfer market by bringing in Ezequiel Munoz and Dimitrios Siovas.

Deportivo Alaves have had a difficult pre-season and the club failed to win the last five friendlies. The summer has seen the departure of key players like Edgar Mendez and Zouhair Feddal.

The recent game between the two clubs was a friendly, which was won by Leganes on penalties after a 1-1 draw. The last league game between the two at the Municipal de Butarque also saw a similar score. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw.

CD Leganes vs Deportivo Alavés – Match odds

Leganes are given odds of 11/10 for a win, while Deportivo Alaves are at a distant 3/1 for a victory. However, both these clubs may struggle to achieve a victory. Last season, Leganes only picked up five wins at home. Three of the last five meetings between the two clubs has finished as a draw. Pellegrino’s departure significantly weakens Deportivo Alaves, and new manager Zubeldia may be happy with an away point. The recent pre-season friendly, which finished as a 1-1 draw, shows that both teams are closely matched. Our preview is confident of going with a draw at 11/5 with Paddy Power.

CD Leganes vs Deportivo Alavés – Correct Score odds

There have been three stalemates in the last five competitive games between the two clubs. Leganes have not been prolific in pre-season, while Alaves have failed to score just once in the last seven friendlies. Completing a deal for Ruben Sobrino is a boon for Alaves, as the club lost Edgar Mendez – a key player towards the end of the campaign – in the transfer market. The recent pre-season friendly game between Leganes and Alaves finished as a 1-1 draw. Our correct score prediction is to go with a 1-1 draw at 11/2 with William Hill.

CD Leganes vs Deportivo Alavés – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Only two of the last five competitive meetings between the two clubs has witnessed over 2.5 goals. Deportivo Alaves scored just 22 on the road last season, while Leganes managed a similar number in the 19 home matches. Both these teams are not prolific in front of goal. Our total goals prediction is to opt for under 2.5 goals at 4/9 with Sky Bet.

CD Leganes vs Deportivo Alavés – First Goalscorer odds

Alexander Szymanowski was the top scorer for Leganes last season with eight goals in all competitions. He represents the biggest threat for Leganes in this game, despite not scoring in five appearances against Deportivo Alaves in all competitions. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Szymanowski at 11/2 with Bet365.
