Odds from as of 8/27/19

“Soccer" CD Leganes

CD Leganes was founded in 1928 and while the club has spent the majority of its existence in the lower divisions, they have stayed in the La Liga since making it to the top flight for the first time during the 2015-16 season. They barely avoided relegation in their first two seasons in La Liga with 17th place finishes in 2017 and 2018. They improved to 13th place during the 2018/19 season.

In 2018, they made it to the semifinal of the Copa del Rey for the first time in their history when they defeated Real Madrid 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Other than that, this club hasn’t found plenty of success. Leganes won the Segunda Division B in 1992/93 and the Tercera Division in 1985/86. They head to this matchup with Real Betis as the soccer betting underdogs.

Youssef En-Nesyri led Leganes with a total of nine goals scored last season. The Moroccan striker played for Malaga CF before signing a five-year deal with Leganes in 2018. Last February 2019, he became the first player from Leganes to score a hat trick in La Liga competition. Jonathan Silva led the club with six assists last season while also scoring three goals. The 25-year old left-back replaced Diego Rico who left for Bournemouth in 2018.

“Soccer" Who Wins?

Real Betis are the soccer betting favorites here but they head to this matchup having lost four out of their last six matches across all competitions. On the other hand, CD Leganes enter this showdown with four wins in their last six matches across all competition. Head to head, it has been close. These clubs have played a total of ten times and Leganes has five wins against Real Betis’ four.

Real Betis has lost its first two matches of the current La Liga season. They were beaten 2-1 by Real Villadolid and were pounded 2-5 by Antoinne Griezmann and Barcelona. Likewise, Leganes is also in the same boat as Real Betis with a 0-0-2 record to start the season. Leganes lost to Osasuna and Atletico Madrid both on 0-1 scores.

Both these teams are off to a rough start to their 2019/20 La Liga campaign but when you look at their early matches, Real Betis has played better than CD Leganes. Leganes has yet to score a goal this season and their offensive woes could be their undoing against a good scoring club like Real Betis. The latter should take advantage of and be able to score enough goals to win this match. Prediction: Real Betis
