Eibar vs Leganes Prediction & Betting tips
An interesting match on Friday is Eibar and Leganés for a new date in the Santander League.
In my opinion, the Basque team departs slightly as a favorite because of the collective potential they have and especially because they will seek their first win as a local in the championship. For this reason and even if your rival is rough and uncomfortable to overcome, we advise you to play a few euros to the simple victory of the premises. At stake is climbing positions and away from the descent.
Take into account that Eibar does not get well to this game after losing 3-0 against Sevilla in the Sánchez Pizjuán and staying with 3 points in the general table. The team has added 2 losses in a row, leaving behind the initial victory against Malaga in the Rosaleda. In spite of all the directed by Mendilibar are ordered and combative in the midfield.
On the other hand do not forget that the Basque team will seek to win their first duel in their stadium, after losing 0-1 against Athletic Bilbao a few weeks ago. His goal is to be effective as he was in the last tournament (he won several matches in Ipurúa, beating rivals of the same or lower level).
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Leganés is coming from losing 1-2 against Getafe as a local, remaining with 6 points in the general table. The team cut their 2-game winning streak by failing to defend well in one-on-one plays. His goal will be to add in this exit even if he does not keep the rhythm of the game (tactical and rough approach).
Already to finish we tell you that the visit will seek to repeat what they did in their first two matches, which were positive for their aspirations after beating Alavés 1-0 at home and beating Espanyol 1-0. It is not ruled out that he backs up his lines constantly, trying to appeal to the cons and the standing balls to see if he can score.
After all this I play for a victory of the local cadet for the following reasons: First because Eibar is a well worked team despite the defeat suffered against Sevilla in Sanchez Pizjuán. Therefore, it should not be surprising that you can take the initiative and advance your lines from the initial pitazo. Second because the Basque team will try to win their first home game and leave behind what happened against Athletic Bilbao in their first home game (0-1). And third because Leganes, despite being a combative eleven between lines, is still irregular at the time of scoring. Given this reality and thus the process is fought in the midfield, we believe that the boys of Mendilibar can win even if it is a goal difference.
