Leganes will need to turn Butarque into something of a fortress again if they are going to haul themselves out of their current position but they were slow to get going last term and did ultimately beat the drop with considerable ease to secure their highest ever league finish. A solid performance and 1-1 draw at the Mestalla will certainly be a morale boost to Mauricio Pellegrinos men who lost their opening four fixtures. Most concerning of all, three of those games were at home where they are usually so strong.

Preview, Prediction, Betting Tips

Athletic Club ended match-day 5 on top of La Liga, the first time theyve led the league at such an advanced stage since the 1990s. Of course, this is still very early days but with few sides convincing so far, they could just be darkhorses for a top four push under Gaizka Garitano. It already feels like survival may well be the only objective for Leganes who have been very slow to get off and running but they did pick up their first point of the new campaign at the weekend.

The club from Bilbao is playing in the highest Spanish division since its founded in 1928 and is next to Real Madrid and FC Barcelona for a longest period of time in the Primera Division. Athletic de Bilbao used to play until 2012 in the San Mames stadium (also known as La Catedral). Athletic Club (mostly known as Athletic de Bilbao) is a Spanish football club from the Bask region which is playing currently in the Primera Division.

Roberto Rosales scored five goals in 72 games for Gent in the Belgian top flight and in the summer of 2010 he signed a three-year deal with Eredivisie side Twente. He quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Twente and you should bear in mind that he played 118 games in the Dutch elite division for the club. After making two appearances in the league for Caracas, the Venezuela international joined Belgian side Gent in 2007 and he played for De Buffalos until 2010.

Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao Score Prediction

Athletic Bilbao is not afraid to attack their opponents. They can play very well in front of the away fans and they will try to secure a good result here. They wont be missing any players here. Their main striking force is Williams who will try to provide some goals here. They have scored a goal in each of their first four games.

The Lions, on the other hand, have been producing fine performances in the second half of the season and, as a result, they are still in the race for a place in the Europa League. However, seeing that Leganes are tough to beat at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. The capital club have been impressive at the back in the 2018/2019 La Liga season and we are positive that they are going to rely on their rock-solid defence against Athletic Club.

With Athletic Bilbao scoring just one goal so far in their outings and Leganes yet to find the back of the net here, expect no more than a goal or two at the most by the end of the ninety minutes. All of their last three head to head clashes here have been low scoring ones with under 2.5 goals on the charts.

Goal Margins

Their promotion of Jos ngel Ziganda to the top job never looked like paying off and they have a more experienced campaigner in the form of Eduardo Berizzo this term. He ought to bring a more attacking approach and the Athletic fans should respond to that, which may help them turn San Mames into something of a fortress again. He was unlucky to lose his job at Sevilla last season and did a great job previously in Vigo.

The pacey full back made 37 appearances for the club in the 2008/2009 season and at the end of the campaign he signed a deal with Serie A side Udinese. After playing amateur football in his homeland France, Allan Nyom began his professional career at Arles-Avignon. However, given the great collaboration between Udinese and Granada, he was immediately sent on loan to the Estadio Nuevo los Carmenes outfit.

Theyve only taken 5 points from their last 7 away matches in La Liga although 3 of them did come on this ground against Leganes last season, their only road win in six months. Athletic head into this game after yet another home win as they saw off Basque rivals Alaves. They remain unbeaten at San Mames in La Liga under Gaizka Garitano but their away record is far less convincing.
