In the only match of the day in La Liga, Celta Vigo will host Leganes at the Balaídos. Leganes will try to end their three-game losing streak. The outcome of this match will likely determine the look of the middle part of the table as there is only a three points difference between today’s rivals.
Celta Vigo are back on their losing ways as they have lost their last game to Sevilla by the score of 2-1. Gomez of Celta Vigo gave his team the lead, but Muriel and Nolito turned the things around with one goal each, and with their goals set the final score. Celta Vigo are placed thirteenth at the table with a positive goal difference of +4. So far in the season they have won four, lost six games, and on two occasions they managed to get a draw. They need a win here today or they might come dangerously close to the outskirts of the relegation zone.
Leganes are currently placed eight at the table and have a negative goal difference of -2. So far in the season they have won five games, lost five and managed to get a draw on two occasions. Last week they lost to Barcelona by the score of 0-3. Suarez of Barcelona scored one goal in each half. Paulinho sealed the deal with his goal in the second-half stoppage time. The outcome of this match is likely to determine the look of the middle part of the table.
When it comes to the previous duels between these two sides, the point distribution has been somewhat equal. Out of the four matches that these teams have played throughout their history, both teams were victorious two times. It is worth noting that out of those four matches in just one we saw both teams scoring.
