Real Sociedad vs Leganes Prediction & Betting tips
A match for the emperor’s beard, that’s how we can best describe the meeting between Real Sociedad and Leganes. For both teams, apart from the sporting honor, nothing is at stake, although the home club is a lot better in shape.
Since the resignation of Eusebio and the appointment of interim coach Imanol Alguacil, Real Sociedad has been revived a bit, although qualifying for European football is no longer this season. For the Basques it is therefore only a matter of closing the season with a raised head, preferably with a final classification in the left-hand row. Then the board can start the big renovation, because there is a lot going on this summer in the Anoeta. The club from San Sebastian hopes to be able to tie Unai Emery as head coach, while key players like Xabi Prieto, Carlos Martinez and Sergio Canales are busy at their last weeks in Anoeta. Also players like Geronimo Rulli and Alvaro Odriozola will undoubtedly be drawn.
However, if Real Sociedad does not succeed in getting Unai Emery, a permanent employment contract for Imanol would be a good alternative. Outdoors, La Real has had a difficult time, but for its own audience the blue-whites have been able to win three times in a row since the appointment of the interim manager. In the last three home matches, the team scored no less than eleven goals – especially Mikel Oyarzabal and Juanmi Jimenez had three goals on their hips. That Juanmi is also a bit of a strange bird. If he is allowed to start in the base he usually does not bake much, but as a pinch hitter he is perilous.
At Leganes, the pipe is a bit empty, because since the Madrilenians have been definitively insured for life retention, they bake with just one point out of the last four races. Last weekend, Los Pepineros, in his own house, went a bit hard at 0-3 against Levante, although trainer Asier Garitano hardly had a word: “If we are not one hundred percent sharp, something like that can happen. However, I am still very satisfied with the course of our season. ‘ The club indeed did not have a moment in relegation distress this season, more you can not wish for as a Leganes trainer.
It remains to be seen how far Leganes is able to boost the last two relatively unimportant rounds of play. Garitano let this week know to keep ahead of Leganes, which can therefore look for a new coach. A huge shock, because it was Garitano who managed to lead the team from the third class to the highest level. With that, he is by far the best trainer ever from club history. In addition, such an announcement is risky, because you often see that a team collapses as soon as the coach has made known to leave after the season. On top of that, the Madrilenians are having a hard time this year on strange soil. The last win in La Liga dates back to October 15 last year (Malaga-out: 0-2). The chance that the team will manage this weekend with this out syndrome seems small, because among other things, club top scorer Gabriel Pires (five goals) is suspended.
