Leganes vs Celta Vigo

Spain La Liga – Round 32

14/04/2018

 

Leganes will be seeking to improve on their 3 – 1 defeat to Barcelona last time out, though have been regularly conceding chances. Celta Vigo aims for back-to-back victories, having been slightly fortunate to have beaten Sevilla 4 – 0 last time out. Though they aren’t favourites, Leganes represent good value and are well worth backing.
