Team News: Leganés
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Leganés boss Asier Garitano to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Daniel Lasure (Testicular Cancer) is out of contention.
Team News: CE Sabadell
Sabadell boss Antonio Hidalgo has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Néstor Querol (Torn Knee Ligament), Álvaro Vázquez (Muscle Injury) and Aleix Coch (Hamstring Injury) won’t be making appearances.
In our opinion, Leganés will most probably fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they meet CE Sabadell, who may well find it hard to break down their defence.
We reckon that it will be a comfortable 2-0 margin for Leganés at the conclusion of the game.
