LEGANES VS ATH BILBAO (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 24.04.2019

Leganés have lost just two of their 16 La Liga (LL) home fixtures this season (W7, D7, L2), and boast the division’s fifth-best home defensive record after conceding just 0.81 goals per home game on average.
Netting at least one goal could be vital to Leganés’ chances, as they have lost the two LL home games this term in which they failed to find the net. Moreover, if Leganés win this game, it will likely be with a clean sheet, as they have registered one in their last six home league victories.
Scoring over 50% (eight) of their 14 away goals to date in the first half, Athletic Bilbao arrive at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on a run of two consecutive away losses in the league. Their 3-0 away loss at Real Madrid (last weekend) made it four consecutive LL away matches in which they’ve conceded the first goal of the game (W1, L3).
The visitors also possess LL’s joint-fourth worst away attack, after scoring just 0.88 goals on average per away fixture. However, that is an unsurprising statistic, considering that Bilbao additionally boast the lowest average number of shots per away game (7.94) in the league.
Players to watch: Leganés’ striker Youssef En Nesyri has scored eight goals in LL so far, with seven of those coming at home.
Athletic Bilbao’s top scorer Iñaki Williams (12 LL goals) is still enjoying a rich vein of form, scoring five goals in his last six LL appearances.
Stat attack: Half of Leganés’ 16 home league games this season have produced a half-time scoreline of 1-0 either way.
At all venues, four of the five H2H league meetings have produced under 2.5 goals.
The hosts have kept a clean sheet in each of the two historical LL home meetings with Bilbao.
