SEVILLA VS LEGANES (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 03.05.2019

A 1-0 loss to relegation-threatened Girona last time out has kept fifth-placed Sevilla outside the Champions League places, although they now return to the Sánchez Pizjuán where they have won their last three La Liga (LL) matches, and have scored an average of 2.18 goals per top-flight home game this term.
That defeat was also the seventh league game in Sevilla’s last eight that saw just one side find the back of the net. Yet despite that, there have been some highly entertaining games here this season, with a league-high five of the hosts’ 17 LL home fixtures featuring five or more goals.
In contrast, ten of visiting Leganés’ last 11 top-flight games ended with under 2.5 goals, with both teams scoring in just four of those fixtures. Although it’s worth noting that both teams scored in the last five top-flight H2Hs between these two teams, with three of those producing over 2.5 goals.
One win in their last five away league games (W1, D1, L3) won’t inspire much confidence, although Leganés have scored in each of their last three on the road. If they are to score again here, travelling fans may be waiting a while – half of Leganés’ LL away goals this term were netted after the 60th minute.
Players to watch: Nine of Wissam Ben Yedder’s (SEV) 17 league goals this term were scored in the 15 minutes before the end of each half. Meanwhile, Youssef En Nesyri (LEG) has scored five of his eight LL goals after half-time.
Stat attack: Six of Sevilla’s 11 top-flight home victories arrived by a margin of two or more goals.
Over half (52.94%) of Leganés’ LL away fixtures this term have been goalless at half-time.
There’s been a goal after the 75th minute in seven of Sevilla’s last eight LL home games.
