Ebro vs Leganes Prediction
Ebro is at the twelfth spot in the Segunda Division B table trailing by almost ten points to the top four in their league table. They had marked their second consecutive winless game in the 2-2 draw with Espanyol B in their previous encounter.
Apart from that, Ebro has had troubles at home. They have dropped points after leading in their recent home matches. Evidently, the host has won only four of their last ten home matches.
Even though they have lost only one of their previous ten matches in major competitions, they have faced teams from an inferior league compared to La Liga. Since Leganes is from the top-tier league, Ebro will not be that confident of facing Leganes.
Leganes marked their third loss in the prior ten matches in major contests after their previous encounter with Getafe. They lost 0-3 at home against Getafe and are currently at the 19th spot in La Liga table.
On the other hand, Leganes have improved their game in La Liga lately. After six winless games on the road, Leganes has been unbeaten in the past four away clashes in major competitions.
Besides that, Leganes has been a strong contender for relegation in La Liga this season. Even so, they have been competing with the top-tier clubs in Spain. So, the visitor will still have the advantage despite being on an away ground.
As such, Leganes has more chance of winning the game since they are from a top-tier league compared to the host. Also, we can expect the total score to be over 2.5 goals in the match.
