The confrontation between Leganes vs Granada can be decisive for the two teams in La Liga, this season. The match is scheduled for Monday, June 22, 2020, at Estadio Municipal de Butarque.
Leganes is not in a comfortable situation
Leganes occupies one of the nineteenth relegation positions, and needs results to hope to remain in the elite league in Spain. Not everything is lost yet, because the difference from the last saved position is only three points. In the stages of resumption, in the lower area, things remained almost the same, without major changes. None of the teams in this area managed to win and move away from the dangerous area. Leganes got only one point in the three games played. In home matches he has only four victories, but three of them have come in the last seven matches. Oscar Rodriguez has scored nine times and is the hosts’ most dangerous striker.
- Leganes (4-4-2): Cuéllar – Bustinza, Omeruo, Awaziem, Silva – Rosales, Rubén Pérez, Amadou, Kevin Rodrigues – Óscar, Carrillo
- Coach: Javier Aguirre
Granada still hopes for a place in Europe
Granada ranks tenth in the standings, with forty-two points. There can be no question of downgrading, the distance from the first dangerous position being sixteen points. All the team’s attention is directed to the seventh place, the one that can bring them a place in the Europa League. It will be quite difficult to get it, because it is also targeted by other much stronger teams, such as Valencia, Villareal or Athletic Bilbao. Away, Granada lost eight of the fifteen matches played. Now he comes after a series of three unbeaten games, during which he accumulated five points. In total he has thirteen points brought from the opponent’s lands and occupies the eleventh place in such a hierarchy. Carlos Fernandez has scored seven times this season.
- Granada (4-2-3-1): Rui Silva – Víctor Díaz, Duarte, Sanchez, Neva – Herrera, Brice Eteki – Machis, Puertas, Carlos Fernandez – Soldado
- Coach: Diego Martinez
Leganes vs Granada Picks
In this period in which the matches follow one another with dizzying speed, the physical condition of the players and the quality of the team matter a lot. Often the hierarchies can be turned upside down and the teams at the bottom of the standings can get unexpected victories. I saw that Granada started to look tired in the match with Villareal. He has a lot of injured players and coach Martinez cannot make important changes from one match to another. It is a good situation for Leganes, who can benefit from this visible fatigue of the opponent. The host team needs a victory to continue hoping for a place in La Liga. Celta Vigo leads 4-0, as I write this article, and increases the distance from the relegation positions. Leganes is forced to move with a victory.
