Leganes – Eibar : Preview & Prediction
The Santander League continues and this Saturday evening Leganés will play against Eibar in a duel that promises to be rubbed from the initial whistle. A priori, we believe that a draw would be the result to choose, since they are combative groups that prioritize strength and muscle over good football.
News of Leganés
Located half board and far from the direct descent, Leganés aims to stay in that area and add as many points as he can in the season. He is known for being a set that scores and that yields few goals in their matches, posing very tactical and closed duels. It comes to equal 0-0 before Getafe of visit, arriving to add 29 in total. On Wednesday he visited Sevilla for the semifinal round of the Copa del Rey (2-0 defeat and elimination of the tournament).
As a local, Leganés has registered 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, reaching to score 10 goals and give 8 on his fence. He has won 4 of his last 5 duels at home for the Santander League, losing only 0-3 against Barcelona. Later he defeated Villarreal 3-1, 1-0 to Real Sociedad and 3-2 to Espanyol.
Actuality of Eibar
What Eíbar did in the Spanish tournament is no coincidence, since he has been completing acceptable seasons since his promotion to the first division. Far from the descent and with chances to qualify for the next Europa League, those led by Mendilibar have as their next goal to join this tough start. They come from thrashing 5-1 to Sevilla at home, cutting a streak of 3 games without winning.
Acting away from Ipurúa, Eíbar has alternated good and bad results, winning 3 matches, drawing another 2 and losing the remaining 5 that he played in this condition (8 goals scored and 21 received in his goal). Of course, he has improved his numbers by playing away from home, registering 4 unbeaten starts (1-2 win against Alavés, 0-0 draw with Getafe, 1-2 win against Las Palmas and 1-1 parity against Athletic Bilbao) .
The last game held by Leganés and Eíbar was played in the field of the Basques and ended 1-0 in their favor. Of course, at the end of December 2016, both teams played in the Leganés field, equaling 1-1 after the final whistle.
Forecast Leganés vs Eibar
The game paints to be closed and fought in the midfield, since the two teams are tactical by nature. Therefore, it is feasible that defenses are imposed on attacks. Of course, despite their collective limitations, both Leganés and Eibar can reach a goal and recover from a hypothetical initial disadvantage. Considering these data, we believe that the final result can be an equality. There is no great difference between one set and another, believing both can add 3 points in the table. It should be noted that Leganés is combative in his stadium, showing him in the Copa del Rey and in the Spanish tournament. Eibar in turn is known for not shrinking his visit, notably improving his numbers in his last 4 starts (2 draws and 2 wins).
