The Espanyol vs. Leganes match will be played on Friday, January 4, at the RCDE Stadium, Barcelona. Espanyol is currently 14th at the table with 21 points, while Leganes is 16th at the table with 19 points at the moment.


  • Espanyol is in a disastrous form at the moment, with six straight defeats in the league. They scored only three and conceded 16 goals in those six matches!
  • Leganes is undefeated in their last six matches in all competitions. We saw under 2.5 goals in their last four games.


These teams played only four matches against each other so far. Leganes won the last two, while the first two went in Espanyol's favor.


After a fantastic start of the season, Espanyol fans were dreaming about Europa League. Now, they only want to avoid the battle against relegation. In only two months, Espanyol dropped from the top four into the abyss. It is hard to explain what happened to them, but one thing is clear - Espanyol must win the match against Leganes, or they will be in a very hard situation. If they beat them, they would be eight points clear off the relegation zone, so they would buy a much needed peace.

Leganes didn't have a great start of the season, but in the last couple of weeks they are performing really well. With the eventual victory, Leganes would join the mid-table teams, which is their goal for the season. They would be happy with the draw as well, especially if we know that Leganes won only one away match in La Liga this season.

It is hard to predict the winner of this match, altough Espanyol should be a slight favorite. We believe that we will see under 2.5 goals.
