Valencia hosts Leganes in a match from the 9th round of the Spanish La Liga. Let’s take a look at this match, which is going to be played at the Mestalla in Valencia.
The last season was very good for Valencia and the team qualified for the Champions League for a first time since some years. But we can say that Marcelino’s team did not stat the new campaign in the best way possible. Valencia are currently 13th in the league standings with 9 points and a record of 1 win, 6 draws and 1 loss. It’s not good enough for a club which aims to finish in the Top 4 of La Liga.
In their last five matches, Valencia made four draws. Including against the champion Barcelona in the previous round. Ezequiel Garay opened the score for Los Che after just two minutes of playing, but Barca’s superstar Lionel Messi levelled the score after an assist from Luis Suarez.
In other words, right now Valencia are doing too many draws and they are losing too many points. Their goal is once again to finish in the Top 4 and to return to the Champions League. But it’s going to be difficult.
Leganes are also having some trouble. They are currently in the relegation zone of the league, being 18th with 7 points won. Their record so far shows 2 wins, 1 draw and 5 defeats.
But Leganes are showing some improvement lately. The team won two of its last three matches, beating Barcelona and Rayo Vallecano at home. Clearly Leganes are much better at home than they are on the road. Let’s see how this will affect their performance against Valencia.
That’s our view on the La Liga clash between Valencia and Leganes at the Mestalla. We wish you good luck with this one!
