Leganes vs Deportivo match details
Deportivo are struggling for La Liga survival this season.
It’s bizarre to think that just 14 years ago, Deportivo reached that semi finals of the Champions League. That’s further than Manchester City or PSG have ever reached in the competition.
Clarence Seedorf has been doing a great job with his Deportivo side in recent weeks. Deportivo have lost just once in their last 5 matches and that defeat came at the hands of Atletico Madrid.
Leganes have struggled to string together any form of consistency. Since their famous win at the Bernabeu back in January, Leganes have lost 9 of their following 16 games.
Earlier in the season, Deportivo claimed all three points thanks to a first half Adrian Lopez header. They will be hoping for a similar result this time around.
Adrian Lopez is coming to form at just the right time.
Lopez has 4 goals in his last 3 games including 2 in Deportivo’s recent win away at Athletic Bilbao.
Lopez has captained the side in recent weeks but was unable to hit the target on Tuesday night as Deportivo were held to a goalless draw at home against Sevilla.
Lopez rejoined Deportivo from Porto after 6 years away from the club and he became an instant hero once again. He will surely become a legend if his goals can keep Deportivo in La Liga.
Leganes’ strong home record
In their last 5 home fixtures, Leganes have lost just one match. That defeat (against Valencia) was clearly just a lip as they responded immediately with a 1-0 win against Celta Vigo.
