Owing to a fully injury-free group to pick from, the Leganés boss Imanol Idiákez has no fitness worries to speak of before this clash.
From our viewpoint, Leganés could decide to make use of a 4-4-2 formation, settling for Daniel Jimenez, Jorge Miramon, Allan Nyom, Jorge Saenz, Josema, Daniel Raba, Iker Undabarrena, Ruben Pardo, Fede Vico, Piotr Parzyszek and Jose Arnaiz.
We feel that in this game, Leganés are dangerous enough to put one past this SD Huesca team, however that probably won’t be enough to prevent defeat.
