Leganes vs Real Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
On Monday evening, Madrid’s city derby between Leganes and Real Madrid is on the agenda in cozy Butarque. Leganes smells blood, because the Real Madrid season is almost over.
Although there are still seven rounds to play, the season can no longer be broken for Leganes. The small club from Madrid, with forty points, is in a creditable eleventh place and is therefore virtually assured of a new season at the highest level. A great achievement from the men of coach Mauricio Pellegrino.
Leganes is in any case in shape and continues to fight until the very last whistle. The blues and whites scored in injury time in their last two duels (Real Valladolid-home: 1-0 and Alaves-out: 1-1). With only two losses in fifteen home games, Los Pepineros is supreme in its own Butarque anyway. Only Girona and Villarreal managed to escape with the full booty. This is of course largely due to the passionate support of the fans. To thank them, the board deliberately kept ticket prices low. The Butarque will therefore be full again on Monday evenings.
The story of Real Madrid is known. The troubled top club is one block behind FC Barcelona in La Liga, and recently had the cheese of the bread eaten by a dazzling Ajax in the eighth finals of the Champions League. With the return of Zinedine Zidane, peace has returned to Santiago Bernabeu, but the Madrid arrows are of course mainly focused on next season. Through a few major purchases, Los Blancos hope to regain its connection with the European top.
In this vintage, apart from the sporting honor, nothing is at stake anymore, so Zidane uses the remaining games to rotate and see who else can be of value to Real Madrid next season. Although the Koninklijke managed to win four of its last five league matches, it still lacks the proverbial spark that you usually see in teams still competing for the prizes. It all looks listless and dutiful, which is understandable in itself. The players want to leave on vacation and this unsuccessful season as quickly as possible. In addition, captain Sergio Ramos, one of the few Madrilenians who still radiates that real winner’s mentality, has to let go on Monday evening due to injuries.
