Leganes vs Real Madrid
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 19 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
The Champions of this season La Liga will have one last bout in the league aiming to put a cherry on the top unless Leganes can pull something off at home to avoid relegation this season in the campaign.
Leganes is unbeaten in their last four clashes in the campaign and has kept the clean sheet in all those matches, pulling the host to the cusp of safety in the league table.
They will host after a 0-2 win on the road against Athletic Bilbao last time out in the league. Besides, the host has defeated Los Blancos here in the Copa del Rey this season itself after losing 3-0 at Bernabeu.
Real Madrid’s ten-game winning streak in the campaign post lockdown is the single most thing that they need to flaunt to show their form in La Liga.
Rightly deserving the title, Los Blancos will now boot up for the Champions League fixture next month and the last game this season will probably be a practice session.
Zidane and his men have been invincible after the league restart and it doesn’t seem how the host will change that trend with their poor overall form in the contest so far.
Leganes vs Real Madrid Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has recorded four of the last five wins.
- Only one of their recent five fixtures has ended in a draw.

- The host is unbeaten at home in the last two clashes.
- Both teams have scored in two of the last five meetings.
Leganes vs Real Madrid Prediction
Leganes came back alive in the league at the last minute, but it looks like their fate in the campaign depends on the results of other teams and also in tackling the Champions 2020 at home. Even with their ground advantage favoring them, Zidane’s boys will probably try to wrap up the season with a win.
We saw Zizou’s one of the strongest eleven in the last match, and it is likely to see some changes with more young players getting a chance in the last fixture this season. Real Madrid is still a strong squad and the Champions will not want to lose to a relegation prone side right after getting the title.
Los Blancos has been excellent post lockdown with 10 straight wins including four away games, with a one-goal margin win in each. So, the safest bet for the punters will be a draw no bet over Real Madrid with 1.60 odds to yield decent returns in the encounter.
After holding the goal with five clean sheets in a row, Courtois let in goals in the previous two fixtures, mostly in the second half where the defense gets a little sloppy. So, the tip for BTTS with 1.75 odds will also be a suitable option for the punters.
