VLD vs LEG Dream11 Prediction: A win sees Leganes scrape out of the relegation come today’s imminent affair.
As La Liga 2019-20 gets back to action after a hiatus of two weeks, we may not have the most enticing of teams getting gameweek 19 underway but this is a clash which promises to be a closely contested affair. It’s all down to the colossal ramifications emerging from this encounter between Real Valladolid and Leganes with the three points equally important for either side.
Slumped in a relegation battle with Leganes currently finding themselves in 19 th place, Leganes will be looking to squirm their way out of the dreaded bottom three come today. The club ended last year on a resurgent spree with the side unbeaten in their last three encounters, two of which saw them record wins.
And the most recent outing saw them put down Espanyol 2-0, a pivotal result which acted as a massive shot in the arm for the side in a bid to rejuvenate their season. And they’ll be quietly confident of continuing their unscathed spree when the face-off against a struggling Real Valladolid side which is currently winless in its last five outings.
The club drew 1-1 with Valencia in their bygone fixture, a result which saw them slip into 14th position in the league standings. And with them up against a rampant side at the moment, things looking extremely jittery for them as they look to wrench out of their ordeal come today.

VLD vs LEG Dream11 Goal-keepers
With either side looking likely to concede today, our pick in this ambit is based solely on the better goal-keeper. And it’s this discourse which alluded us towards Ivan Cuellar from Leganes, a player who pulled off a sublime display the last time around to halt Espanyol from scoring.
VLD vs LEG Dream11 Defenders
While Real Valladolid have been extremely tepid an underwhelming in defence, the club are clearly the more astute side between these two when it comes to keeping clean sheets. They have let in 21 goals in 18 matches, forcing sides to contemplate on how to break their sound and compact defence.
And they’ll be looking to pull off another disciplined and responsible defensive display today as well, one which sees us bring in the two defenders from their side for this one. Both Javi Moyano and Kiko Olivas are being brought in from the side for the day.
While from the visiting unit we have opted for Unai Bustinza and Kevin Rodrigues with the side coming off against a side which has managed to muster up a mere 15 goals in 18 encounters. This encounter will be one where Leganes will be looking to pull off an elusive cleansheet, one they know they can manage owing to the lacklustre attacking display infront of them.
VLD vs LEG Dream11 Mid-fielders
Although Real Valladolid have been horrid infront of goal, the side will be looking to fulfilling their yearning for goals come this affair. They are up against a side which has shipped in the 28 goals in 18 matches, a waning defence which Oscar Plano will be looking to be capitalise on.
He’s going to be paired up with Michel while from the other side of the unit we have gone in with the two picks as well. A reason for the side’s revitalisation over the last month has been down to the calibre of the vibrant and enigmatic Roque Mesa and Oscar Rodriguez.
VLD vs LEG Dream11 Strikers
He’s managed to score four goals for his side this season, a striker who has waged a lone battle for his side despite being part of a lopsided defence. It sees us earmark Sergi Guardiola for the upcoming contest along with Sandro Ramirez to wrap up our set of picks for the clash.
