Leganes vs Eibar
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 10 February 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
Eibar destroyed Sevilla netting as many as five goals past Los Rojiblancos last weekend at their Municipal de Ipurua and they will head into this high on confidence looking to build on such an amazing attacking performance this Saturday when they play Leganes. The win has climbed the Gunsmiths up to the sky-high seventh place in the La Liga ladder which makes them genuine contenders for the European competitions next term.
Nonetheless, it will be anything but an easy task for Mendilibar’s men to collect another three-pointer against Leganes who have also been one of the most pleasant surprises in this term of Primera Division. The Legionaries sit 12th being far away from the relegation scrap at this stage and they’ll come into this after winning four of last five league ties at home (the only defeat came to Barcelona).
The achievement is greater if we know that Asier Garitano could not count on services of his key man Alexander Szymanowski who has been absent for quite some time now due to injury. What could cause problems for the hosts here is fatigue as they’ve constantly been playing in a challenging Saturday-Wednesday rhythm of late, following their successes in Copa del Rey.
Leganes vs Eibar: Head-to-head

None of last six H2H ties saw three or more goals.
Leganes vs Eibar: Prediction
The draw somehow seems to be the closest of three outcomes in this one given that Eibar have been undefeated in last four away matches on the road in La Liga, while Leganes have won four of last five home outings.
Both teams have been pretty impressive in the final third of late and we have to notice the value in backing the BTTS bet at the odds of 2.05.
