Eibar vs Leganes Prediction & Betting tips
In its own Ipurua, low-flyer Eibar will be visited on Thursday evening by vice-finalist Leganes. The home club will probably have to win again to extend its LaLiga subscription by a season. The visitors will almost certainly be relegated, but want to say goodbye to the Spanish royal class with their heads held high.
With four rounds to go, Eibar is still not completely safe in LaLiga. The Basques have a six-point lead over the Spanish relegation zone, so they are in principle still a victory away from conservation.
I expect Eibar will be fine. The team is running a changeable season, but has definitely more quality and experience than close attacker Real Mallorca. Last Monday evening, the team was close to a draw in and against Seville (1-0 defeat), but precisely the goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic, who had come along, saw his bet turned shortly before time by Seville striker Lucas Ocampos, who took the place between the posts of the injured Tomas Vaclik. Despite the loss, trainer Jose Luis Mendilibar was satisfied: “I will sleep well tonight, because we played a good game.” In addition, he kept several well-known names outside the base in the Sanchez Pizjuan, so they will all start fresh on Thursday evening.
In principle, the Leganes canvas has already fallen. The Madrid won a 0-1 at Espanyol last weekend, but with only four games to go and a seven point deficit in the safe seventeenth place, the relegation ghost still has them firmly in the woods. Only with a victory over Eibar can Los Pepineros continue to hope for a Houdini act.
In any case, Leganes no longer looks at the rankings. “We just have to do our job every game and try to win,” said trainer Javier Aguirre. “And then we’ll see where we are at the end of the season.” For the rest of the season, the Mexican coach will no longer have playmaker Oscar Rodriguez, the absolute star player of the team. Captain Alexander Szymanowski is fit again, but because he has only played a total of ten minutes since December 2017, we should not expect much from this season.
