Leganes welcomes Alaves in a match for the 1st round of Spanish LaLiga. The home team just did enough to stay up last season, which is a great achievement for them. They were unfortunate to go so close, as they conceded more goals than they were expected to, so they could have a higher position this time around. However, in this match, they will be without Siovas and Serantes, who are both injured. On the other side, Alaves finished the season very strongly to secure a ninth place finish. Copa Del Rey final against Barcelona made it a very successful season for them. Alaves will probably try to use defensive strategy, using the space in their opponent’s backs for counter attacks. Above all, it will be a match between two teams that are being very inconsistent in the previous season, so it expected from both of them not to risk so much, and look for at least one point in this opener. Both teams’ success was built on resolute defensive performances, so a low-scoring game should be displayed.
