Leganes vs Eibar
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 18th December 2016,
Kick-Off at 15:15 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
Miserable and troubled by injuries, Leganes seek for redemption when they host Eibar for match day 16 of the Spanish La Liga 2016/17 season.
The promoted side are going through some rough phase in the league after having won just 2 games in their last 10 LaLiga games. They do have a larger portion of their key players out with injuries which is the main reason for this negative run. They lost 6 games during the period and share the spoils in 2.
Leganes are coming into this game sitting at 15th position in the league table. And there is plenty to worry due to an awful record at home this season. They been only able to register 1 win from their first 7 home of the season, which could dent their chances to save relegation at the end of the current campaign.
Eibar played a goalless draw in their match day 15 clash with Alaves. The gunners are without a win in their last 5 away league games. They are currently 8th position on the league log, 7 points above their Sunday host Leganes.
Leganes vs Eibar: Head-to-head stats
The sides met for the last time during the 2003/2004 Segunda division season. Leganes lost 2-1 at home during that time, before earning a 1-1 draw in the return leg at Eibar.
Eibar were the better side in recent meetings as they are unbeaten in the last three matches against Leganes. However, Leganes were unbeaten in the previous 9 clashes with 5 win and 4 draws.
While playing at home, Leganes lost their last two matches against Eibar, before registering 3 wins and a draw in four matches.
Leganes vs Eibar: Prediction
Leganes can draw plenty of inspiration form their last home game which saw them holding a strong Villarreal to a goal-less draw. They beat Osasuna at this very stadium in their previous home match and could pose a real threat to an Eibar side, who have struggled away from home. Eibar are coming on the back on three defeats in a row away from home and we believe the minnows Leganes could steal a point here.
