Valencia looks to extend their lead into the top-seven position as they take on bottom-placed Leganes in round 36 of the Spanish La Liga Santander on Sunday.
Valencia is coming into this game in the 7th position with 50 points. So far, Valencia has recorded 13 wins, 11 draws and 11 losses. In their last time out, Valencia secured a narrow 2-1 lead over Real Valladolid to end their 4-game winless streak, which is also their second win since league restart. In the game, Valencia’s forward Maximiliano Gomez netted a close-range shot in the 30th-minute. Barely 2 minutes into the second half, Victor Garcia scored an equalizer for Valladolid, but Lee Kangin’s late winning goal snapped Valladolid’s dream of securing a three-point win. Valencia recorded 41% ball possession and 11 goal attempts. Overall, Valencia has recorded 45 goals, 51 conceded goals, 33 assists, 7 clean sheets, 303 shots, out of which 109 shots are on-target, 78 yellow cards and 7 red card bookings.
Maximiliano Gomez is a key player to look out for in this match. Gomez has recorded 9 goals in 30 appearances, the team’s highest. He has also recorded 2 assists, 32 shots, and 17 shots on-target. In front of the net for Valencia is Jasper Cillessen. Cillessen has allowed 30 goals in 23 appearances, an average of 1.35 goals allowed per 90 minutes. He has also recorded 79 saves and 4 clean sheets.
On the other side, Leganes is still drowning in the relegation zone and may lose their La Liga spot. Just 6 points away from the final safe spot, Leganes occupies the 19th position with 29 points. So far, Leganes has recorded 6 wins, 11 draws, and 18 losses in the league. Leganes’ recorded their third draw since league restart in their last time out against Eibar after ending their 6 games winless drought last week. In the match, Leganes recorded 42% ball possession and 10 goal attempts, but none of the two sides were able to secure a goal till the match ended.
On offense, Leganes will be led by Aitor Ruibal García and Miguel Angel Guerrero. Ivan Cuellar will make his 24th goalkeeping appearance for Valencia in this match. The 36-year-old Spanish goalie has allowed 31 goals, an average of 1.29 goals allowed per 90 minutes. He has made 64 saves and 5 clean sheets.
Leganes has never recorded any win against Valencia in any league. However, their last three meetings ended as a lone-goal draw. Leganes’ home game records are disappointingly unimpressive. The home teams have recorded only 4 wins out of 17 home games, which puts them in the 19th position. Valencia’s away game record as bad as Leganes’ home record. Valencia sits on the 16th position with only 3 wins and 10 losses in 17 away matches.
