Leganes vs Eibar
Spanish La Liga.
Date: Saturday, 26th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
Lega is finding it difficult to win games recently. They have lost 3 of their last 5 games across all venues and the remaining 2 were won. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 matches and they all had a final score of 1-0.
But in front of their home fans, they are unbeaten in 5 matches. Also, they have an active 2 match win streak going on there. Less than 2.5 goals came in all 5 of those matches as well. The major highlight of their recent home run is a win against Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey. Also, the draw against Sevilla has given them the impression of underdogs this season.
The defense has been a problem for them throughout this season. More than a goal per game have been conceded in 20 games while scoring only 18 in that period. The 7 draws they played out this season is the result of a below par defensive show.
Eibar is just 3 points above this opponents, but also are poor in defending their own goal. The recent win over Espanyol ended their 7 matches winless run in all competitions. Less than 2.5 goals came in 3 of their last 5 matches across the country. But no wins were obtained by the team from Gipuzkoa in their last 6 traveling fixtures.
The last win in an away game for the Gunsmiths was against Girona back in October. So even with recent success over the hosts, Eibar is not good in away matches like they used to be.
Leganes vs Eibar: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Eibar has a 4 match win streak against this opponent in h2h matches held across all venues.
- Leganes has previously won this match back in January 2013.
- Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in the last 6 h2h matches between these two teams.
- The last 3 h2h games had the same final score 1-0.
- Eibar has 3 wins and a loss in the last 5 h2h meetings at this venue against the hosts.
- Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those previous 5 matches too.
Leganes vs Eibar: Prediction
Eibar has won 3 h2h matches against the hosts and is unbeaten in their last 4 visits here. But right now they are on a 6 game winless run in matches on the road. On the contrary, the hosts are enjoying a 5 match unbeaten run in front of their home fans. So we can bet on the home side to win with 1.82 odds.
Eibar failed to trouble the scores in 5 of their recent 6 away games. Meanwhile, the hosts have scored in all 10 of their previous home matches. I think that will repeat in this upcoming match too. So we can place our bets on both teams not scoring with 1.73 odds.
