PRIMERA MATCH REPORT

Primera Week 38 - 20 May 2017 (18.00 UK)
Leganes 1 - 1 Alaves
Timor 89 (L) Krsticic 64 (A)
Butarque

Leganes capped off the greatest season in their history with a 1-1 draw against Copa del Rey finalists Alaves on Saturday.

Christian Santos should’ve given Alaves the lead when he made sure of a shot in Leganes’ box, but the Venezuelan was wrongly flagged offside.

Nonetheless, Nenad Krsticic nodded in Zouhair Feddal’s cross from left-hand byline for 1-0 to the visitors.

Nereo Champagne kept the hosts in the game with a great save down low to keep out Ibai Gomez’s side-footer.

Leganes piled on the pressure in the latter stages, and Fernando Pacheco pushed away Dimitris Siovas’ shot in the box. However, the goalkeeper could do nothing about David Timor’s long-range effort.

Los Pepineros conclude their campaign in 17th, four points clear of La Liga’s relegation zone, while Alaves have achieved a top-half finish at the very least and could yet move into ninth, depending on how Eibar fare against Barcelona.
