Leganés examines its leadership in Zorrilla


Leganés will test its leadership of LaLiga Hypermotion this Friday (9:00 p.m.) at the José Zorrilla against Valladolid, the ascendant Elche visits an RCD Espanyol in crisis and the Zaragoza-Huesca derby will decide the future of Fran Escribá, in the outstanding meetings of the sixteenth day.

The surprising leader faces a tough test in Valladolid, third, 6 points behind the ‘pepinero’ team thanks to the fact that it is one of the most solid, with 6 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, in its stadium. However, Borja Jiménez’s group presents overwhelming statistics: it has accumulated 5 consecutive wins and is the team with the fewest goals scored.

Despite their good start, Espanyol receives Sebastian Beccacece’s Elche in Cornellá at a bad time – a victory in the last six games – a ‘signature’ team that has recovered from its bad start, with 4 victories and 2 draws that have brought them closer to the promotion play-off. The green and white team arrive after showing their best version of the season in the victory (2-0) against Zaragoza.

This defeat put the future of the former coach of the franjiverde team Fran Escribá in doubt, who after the elimination against Atzeneta, of the Tercera RFEF, in the first round of the Copa del Rey will play for the position in the regional derby against Huesca . “We, the same ones who have created the problem, have the solution,” said Escribá.

The visits of Sporting, second, to Municipal de Santo Domingo to face Alcorcón, and that of SD Eibar to Oviedo complete a program that closes next Monday with the Levante-Racing Club, in which the Blaugrana could have the option to re-enter the top six.
