Javier Aguirre’s men were presented with the best chance to take the lead at the 63rd minute when they were awarded a penalty by referee Ricardo De Burgos after Assalé was fouled in the area, but Guerrero missed the spot-kick, with the ball hitting the post.

Omeruo made a team-high four clearances and was also the top interceptor in the Leganes side with four recorded over the course of ninety minutes.

Stranded in the bottom three in La Liga with 25 points from 31 games, Leganes travel to Osasuna in their next game on Saturday, June 27.
