Las Palmas v Leganes isn’t the most glamorous of games in La Liga this weekend, but it looks to present a decent opportunity to back the home team, with Las Palmas going well this season and sitting in a solid mid-table position.
Other than Real Madrid, Las Palmas are the only team yet to suffer a home defeat in La Liga this term, having won four and drawn three of their seven matches at the Estadio de Gran Canaria. In addition, only the ‘Big Three’ of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have scored more league goals than the 25 registered by Las Palmas this season.
Leganes went into the season as odds-on favourites to be immediately relegated back to the second-tier, but started their campaign in fine form with three away victories in their first four games on the road.
They’ve started to slide down the table on the back of a run that has seen them win just once in their last seven games (a 2-0 win at home to an Osasuna team that’s now propping up the table) and now sit just two points above the drop-zone.
In contrast to their opponents, Leganes have found goals hard to come by, with their tally of 11 from 14 matches being the lowest in the division.
The impressive home record, coupled with their ability to score goals when contrasted against a Leganes team that has a number of injury concerns and is beginning to struggle makes the 5/6 (1.83) available on the home win looking a decent bet here.
