Las Palmas take on the visitors Leganes in the round 5 match of Spanish LaLiga2. The match will be played on Friday, September 9th at Estadio de Gran Canaria (Las Palmas).
Las Palmas reminded of itself last season. The "Canaries" periodically make their way into the LaLiga. The last time it was possible to spend 3 seasons there, from 2015 to 2018. But, having fallen into the Segunda, at first the team showed the maximum results of the middle peasant: 14th place, then 9th twice in a row. And suddenly a breakthrough to the 4th position, and this is the playoff zone. However, already in the first play-off round, they lost to their neighbors, Tenerife. After that, the mentor, Pepe Mel, left. Javier Garcia Pimienta was called to the post of coach, who worked in the structure of Barcelona. In general, he does well. Starting the new season with a goalless draw against Zaragoza, then Las Palmas won against Malaga and Andorra. And last Saturday we were 1-1 on the field of Alaves.

Leganes are not considered as a favorite of the Segunda. The Cucumber Pickers made their debut in La Liga in 2016 and managed to stay there for 3 seasons. But, nevertheless, having taken off, the team turned out to be the mid-tbale side in the Segunda. In the 2021/2022 draw, there were fewer wins than losses, and more conceded goals than scored. 54 points and 12th place is an indicator of the an average team in this league. Instead of Mehdi Nafti, Imanol Idiakes became the new coach. This specialist started frankly unsuccessfully. He could not achieve victory for 3 victories in a row, albeit minimal ones (1-2 with Alaves, 0-1 with Oviedo and Lugo). And only a week ago, last Friday, the team was able to beat Eibar 2-1 at home. It is noteworthy that the clubs scored a goal in 90+ minutes. Will this long-awaited success help the Cucumber Pickers continue their rise from the bottom of the table?
Leganes had a nice 6-match unbeaten streak in head-to-heads. But at the same time, for the past 2 seasons in a row, the “cucumber pickers” have strictly alternated victories over Las Palmas with defeats against the “canaries”. Las Palmas is playing at home and, most importantly, this season has started better. It is unlikely that the long-awaited victory in the last round will help Leganes - we bet that the "canaries" will be able to win in their arena.
Prediction for the match: Las Palmas to win.
