Leganes is looking forward to put yet another smile into their fans’ faces after last week’s thrilling 3-0 win over Sevilla when they host Espanyol. The match will be played on Sunday 12th May 2019 at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque at 17:30GMT.
The season has been great for the capital club. A win on their Sunday fixture against Espanyol will see them keep the fire burning for the chance to play in European competitions next season. As the season comes to an end, collecting all the remaining 6 points will see them possibly make it to Europa League.
Espanyol on the other hand managed to humiliate Atletico Madrid 3-0 making them unbeaten in their last 6 straight matches. Likewise, they are eyeing a slot in the European competitions hence are not going to make things easy for the hosts.
Both teams are prepared to play to their best of ability. A Europa slot is in the cards during the fixture and no team is ready to be the lesser. However we believe En-Nesyri, will be a worth threat to the travellers. Noting that Espanyol is not all that good while on the road, we believe the hosts are worth placing our money on to win.
