The hosts will be pushing desperately for a win, as they remain the only side in the competition to yet post a victory on the board, while the incoming Levante will try to put their four-game winless run to a halt.

Leganes vs Levante Head-to-head (h2h)
Five of the last six wins went to the Frogs.
Los Pepineros have scored a total of one goal from the previous eight fixtures combined.
Since 2001, the hosts have won just once at this venue.
At home, the four former match-ups have fetched Leganes just a single goal.
The last both teams found the back of the net in the same tie was back in 2002.
Leganes vs Levante Prediction
Mauricio Pellegrino’s men are placed dead-last in the table, and their apparent positioning is almost fully justified. They are the only squad in the whole competition yet to post a victory, and disregarding two draws, have lost every single one of their ties.
Their offense has completely been in shambles, with the team so far scoring a total of just three goals. This is the worst return in the whole of La Liga this campaign.
Surprisingly, between home ties, and away fixtures, Pepineros have been worse in the latter category. They lost the first three appearances in front of the home crowd, and if not for the sole draw the last day, they would have boasted of a 100% losing record.
Moreover, h2h clashes too side with the guests of the day as favorites. They registered five of the previous six such wins, and importantly, kept clean sheets in seven of the former eight encounters.
Furthermore, the Frogs are going through a period of decline, and they surely will target the weakest of the lot to get back to the track. While the away handicap will be an obstacle, the current form dictates that the guests will have the scales slightly tipped in their direction.
As such, the assumption is that the visitors will sweat it out on the pitch to find the back of the net once, and then defend the lead with their lives to make sure of the three points. Anyhow, with both squads struggling in front of the goal, the best bet is for the fixture to be a low goal-scoring affair.
