Leganes vs Sevilla Prediction
Leganes sit sixth in the Segunda Division league table, having been relegated from the top-tier after the 2019-20 season. They could come up against Oscar Rodriguez, who earned a move to Sevilla from Real Madrid after a positive loan spell with Leganes.
Sevilla, on the other hand, are sixth in La Liga, four points behind third-placed Barcelona but with a game in hand. They have impressed under the management of Julen Lopetegui, and could potentially field a rotated side against Leganes.
Sevilla have a deep squad to work with, and should be able to emerge victorious.
Prediction: Leganes 0-2 Sevilla
