The Segunda Division campaign concludes this weekend and will see Leganes host Almeria at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Sunday.

Leganes have endured a disappointing campaign and are set to finish mid-table after making the playoffs last season. They picked up a clinical 3-0 win over Ponferradina last time out, with Borja Garces scoring a first-half brace before Naim Garcia completed the rout late in the game.

The home side sit mid-table in 12th place with 53 points from 41 games. They will now be looking to end the season with a win in front of their home fans.

Meanwhile, Almeria have had a solid campaign and are looking to confirm their La Liga return this weekend. They surrendered top spot last weekend after playing out a disappointing 1-1 draw against bottom-placed Alcorcon and will now be looking to bounce back on Sunday.

Almeria sit second in the league table with 80 points from 41 games level on points with Eibar at the top. They only need a point on Sunday to confirm their automatic promotion.

Leganes vs Almeria Prediction

Leganes have had mixed results of late, picking up just two wins in their last seven games. They have lost two of their last three home games and could struggle here.

Almeria, on the other hand, are undefeated in their last eight games and have lost just one of their last 11. They have one of the best away records in the league this season and should win this one.
