Leganes vs Real Sociedad Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Leganes come into the game after having concluded 2017 with a goalless draw against Levante. There were a few good chances at either end of the pitch, while the highlight of the game happened to be the red card for both clubs. Leganes’ Nordin Amrabat was sent off in the 68th minute, while Campana received his marching orders in injury time. Real Sociedad were able to manage a surprise 3-1 win over Sevilla in their final league match of 2017. Inigo Martinez’ early first-half goal was cancelled out by Wissam Ben Yedder just before the break. However, late second-half goals from Igor Zubeldia and Carlos Vela provided a memorable win for Real Sociedad.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The victory over Sevilla gives Real Sociedad with a loss of confidence, but Leganes cannot be underestimated – especially at the Municipal de Butarque. Asier Garitano’s team have just been able to get a win over Villarreal in the midweek Copa del Rey game. Real Sociedad are not the greatest team in terms of away form, managing just one win in the last six on the road. I would bet on a Leganes win.

Real Sociedad and Leganes have met each other twice in recent times, and both games have been with less than 2.5 goals. It is surprising to know that Leganes have the best defensive record in La Liga with only 14 goals conceded. This game is likely to produce under 2.5 goals.

Leganes win – 19/10

Total goals under 2.5 – 4/6

Leganes saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Leganes saw over 1.5 goals in 3 out of their last 4 games played against Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad have conceeded only 4 goals in their last 4 games against Leganes

Leganes Preview

Leganes continue to be devoid of goals and the return of 12 goals in 16 La Liga matches is the worst among the 20 teams so far. Even bottom club Malaga have scored one more goal than Leganes, but Asier Garitano’s team can be happy with one of the best defensive records in the division. Only Atletico Madrid and Barcelona have let in more goals than Leganes, who have conceded only 14 goals so far. However, Leganes will continue to slide on the table as long as the club fails to find the back of the net on a regular basis. Gabriel Pires leads the scoring charts at the club with three goals.

Leganes Team News

Nordin Amrabat is suspended for the game, while Serantes (shoulder), Darko Brasanac (muscle), and Alexander Szymanowski (discomfort) are unavailable for manager Asier Garitano.

Real Sociedad Preview

Real Sociedad have been going through such a bad run of form over the last few weeks that the victory over Sevilla could not have come at a better time. The conclusion to 2017 came in positive fashion. The lack of Copa del Rey action means that Real Sociedad are taking to field against Leganes in a confident mood. The victory over Sevilla was the first La Liga win for Real Sociedad since the success over Eibar in November. Despite the winless run that stretched to 5 matches, Real Sociedad remain in the top 10 of the table and still with the possibility of qualifying for Europe. Wissam Ben Yedder leads the scoring chart at Real Sociedad with seven goals.

Real Sociedad Team News

Adnan Januzaj (hamstring) and Alberto de la Bella (knee) are the players unavailable for manager Eusebio.
