Real Sociedad vs Leganes Prediction & Betting tips
Both Real Sociedad and Leganes have been doing well in recent weeks, so the mutual confrontation of next weekend in the Anoeta promises much good. The home team is still in the race for European football, while visitors take a huge step towards preservation.
Real Sociedad is in good shape, because since the appointment of trainer Imanol Alguacil at the end of last year, the Basques have not lost any league game anymore. The scoreless draw of last week in and against Valencia again meant the sixth unbeaten league match in a row. Alguacil was satisfied with the result achieved. “If you can not win, you have to make sure you do not lose,” said the coach in fluent Cruyffian.
Real Sociedad is of course delighted with Alguacil. “At the moment he is the best conceivable coach for this team,” said chairman Roberto Olabe. This weekend, however, La Real must miss several strong holders. Joseba Zaldua has been suspended, while Asier Illarramendi got badly injured last weekend and will be sidelined in any case until April. That is bad, especially since the blues have this season remarkably difficult in their own Anoeta. With only thirteen points from eleven home matches Real Sociedad belongs this season to one of the worst home teams of La Liga, although since the arrival of Alguacil with two victories and two draws in the last four official home games now a little better in the own Anoeta.
This season, too, Leganes keeps standing in La Liga with minimal means. Last weekend, the Madrilenians subtopper Real Betis pulverized by no less than 3-0. Striker Youssef En-Nesyri has been in excellent form for some time and underlined that with a hat-trick. ‘I am very proud that I was allowed to make the very first hattrick from Leganes at the highest level,’ according to the Moroccan. “The match ball is for my mother.”
With a provisional eleventh place, Leganes is in any case fast on the road to life retention. Los Pepineros are known as a defensive fighting machine, although in my opinion you do not have the team of trainer Mauricio Pellegrino. You will not soon see Tiki-taka in the Butarque, but since En-Nesyri and winter buying Martin Braithwaite form an attack pair, the team scores quite easily. In fact, all official Leganes goals of 2019 are in the name of the Moroccan and the Dane.
