Leganes vs Eibar Prediction & Betting tips
Leganes and Eibar are two teams from a long list of clubs in La Liga that fight against relegation. The result of the Saturday night match in the Butarque could therefore be decisive at the end of the season!
Leganes will also be full again this season for life retention in La Liga. The differences in the right-hand row are very small, but for now trainer Mauricio Pellegrino succeeds in his mission to keep the players from the lower three places in the rankings. Yet in the Butarque one is not at all satisfied with the current football season. Last weekend the blue-whites visited FC Barcelona for some time hoping for a stunt, but there was still lost with 3-1. In the second Catalan match, however, Luis Suarez appeared to be committing a foul on Leganes goalkeeper Pichu Cuellar, but to the fans’ anger the goal was immediately approved without input from the VAR. ‘The whole of Spain has been able to see that this is not right,’ said president Maria Victoria Pavon, who also filed an official complaint with the Spanish Football Association. In addition, the fans have already announced that they will also protest against the arbitration on Saturday evening in the twelfth minute.
I can imagine the anger of Leganes, because it is not for the first time this season that Los Pepineros are disadvantaged by the arbitration. Referees are sometimes just people – it’s easier to whistle against a small club like Leganes than against a superpower like FC Barcelona. Yet Leganes could of course better focus on her own game, as the team is only two points above the relegation streak. In their own Butarque, however, the blue-whites are already seven matches in a row unbeaten, plus the brand new addition Martin Braithwaite has a super start. Barely eleven days after his arrival on Spanish soil, the Danish striker already scored both against Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. He can therefore no longer work with the Leganes supporters.
With 25 points from twenty rounds of play, Eibar can call himself the leader of the right-hand row with an eleventh place. That does not mean, however, that the Basques can already breathe in relief, because the difference with the relegation zone is only five points. This shows once again how much the teams from the Spanish right-hand row are matched.
Eibar refueled on Monday night in any case by sweeping the own Ipurua opponent Espanyol by no less than 3-0. Trainer Jose Luis Mendilibar was obviously a satisfied man, but remained firmly on both feet on the ground: “We played well, although we played against a tired opponent who rotated somewhat. In addition, we did not have to complain about happiness, because we scored goals that probably would not have happened on other days. ‘ A little realism can indeed do no harm, because outside Eibar this season is outright sad. With only one win and three draws, the Basques this year is the second worst out team of the entire Primera Division. That is mainly due to the lack of scoring ability, because only five goals in nine away games is of course not something to write home about.
