Espanyol are playing at home versus Leganes on Friday in search of their first win in La Liga since November. The home team have lost the previous six games in the league, but never in their history have they lost seven games in a row. Espanyol are performing strongly at home since the start of the season and have been on a run of five consecutive wins before the bad results recently.

Leganes ended 2018 with a run of strong results thanks to which they climbed to 16th place in the standings. The Cucumber Growers are unbeaten in La Liga since October 27, although they have just one win in an away fixture since the start of the season.

On paper, Leganes are looking like the more likely winner in the clash, but we think that the home team will end their run of bad results. All of the defeats of Espanyol were against teams from the top half of the table – Barcelona, Atlético Madrid, Sevilla, Betis, Getafe and Girona. Leganes are lagging behind the listed teams, and we think that they will not even score against Espanyol. The Cucumber Growers have scored just seven goals in away fixtures, four of which were against Valladolid. I will back Espanyol Clean Sheet – YES, with Espanyol 1-0 Correct Score.
