ALA vs LEG Dream11 Prediction & Preview | Deportivo Alaves vs Leganes La Liga Match Preview | Fantasy Team & Team News
Deportivo Alaves have been the surprise package in La Liga this year. Generally a mid-table team at best, Alaves are dreaming of Europe this season. They are sat 7th in the table with just 2 points lesser than the 6th placed Sevilla. Their opponents, Leganes, don’t have something exciting to look forward to as they seek to end their season safely in the mid-table.
Abelardo’s Alaves are on the cusp of a Europa League play-off spot. However, they have stumbled in their recent outings and need to steady themselves soon. A 6th place finish for a club with the limited resources of Deportivo Alaves will be a huge achievement.
The clash against Leganes will be all about trying to win it and putting pressure on Sevilla and Valencia who are in touching distance for Alaves. They will be happy to host Leganes at home in their next fixture after having two rather difficult matches against Sevilla and Atletico Madrid. Notably, Alaves have lost 2 consecutive matches and they must avoid a third defeat to keep their hopes of Europe alive.
Leganes, on the other hand, do not have anything significant to play for as they find themselves stuck around mid-table. They have 39 points from 30 matches to put them 12th in the La Liga with just 8 more matches to go. Leganes will now aim to do as well as possible to see where it takes them at the end of the season.
Alaves will seek to win against Leganes and make the most of their home support in tomorrow’s match. Nonetheless, Leganes won’t be short of confidence and they can cause an upset given their recent form where they have won two consecutive matches.
