Best stats of La Liga Wk26

Just when it looked like Real Madrid had turned a corner on FootyStats, they were brought crashing back down to earth by Espanyol, whose 1-0 win was their first in over a decade.

That left them with a prediction risk of 135 percent on FootyStats, making their results the most difficult to forecast in all of Spain’s top flight.

That stands in contrast to Leganes who, despite losing 4-0 for the first time this season to Atletico Madrid, have drawn 0-0 on as many as five occasions.

Atleti, on the other hand, drew two clear of Barcelona as the Liga club with the most clean sheets (17) in 2017-18.

Malaga, meanwhile, made it a League-worst 17 games without scoring out of a possible 26 on Wednesday.

The Andalusians fell to a 1-0 reverse at the hands of nearby Sevilla, and on such evidence, it’s no surprise to see them seven points adrift at the bottom of the table.

Joining them down the bottom are Deportivo La Coruna, who are still looking for their first win under Clarence Seedorf after a 3-0 defeat to Getafe.

However, there were some promising signs for the Dutchman, who saw his side enjoy 57% possession and crack nine attempts at Vicente Guaita’s goal.

As for Geta, the victory reinforced their position as the side with the most home advantage in La Liga, Los Azulones 32% more likely to register a positive result when playing at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

Finally, Real Sociedad and Real Betis both slowed down a worrying trend during their stalemate on Thursday, even though their respective average-goal totals of 94 and 93 remain the League’s highest.
