Leganes vs Real Sociedad Match Preview

Leganes salvaged a point last week on the road after they managed to hold Atletico Madrid to a goalless draw. The hosts, however, were knocked out of the Copa Del Rey in their most recent clash with Barcelona with the latter slotting five unanswered goals past them by the end of the ninety minutes.

It is also worth mentioning that the home team have come away with the win just once in their last four games in all competitions. Deservedly, Leganes are currently dwelling in the relegation zone with just fifteen points to their name.

On the other hand, Real Sociedad bounced back from a 3-0 defeat to Betis in their last outing by getting the better of Mallorca at home by the very same scoreline. Impressively, three different players got their names on the scoresheet for the visitors in that latter clash.

As of now, Real Sociedad are sitting sixth on the ladder, two points shy of fifth-placed Atletico Madrid. A win this week for visitors would see them edge closer to a top-five spot, while a defeat for Leganes could send them crashing to the bottom of the table.

Leganes vs Real Sociedad Prediction

Leganes are sporting one of the worst home statistics in the cluster, and have so far tasted success just thrice. They have also admitted defeat seven times here this season, which is the joint-most by any side at home.

In sharp contrast, Real Sociedad are the third-best away team on the table. Furthermore, the visitors have stumbled just twice in their past six Laliga outings on the trot.

Taking into account that all of the wins that Leganes have secured so far have come against sides that are outside the top ten, Real Sociedad are sizing up to be the favorites in this one.

Be that as it may, the visitors have not picked up the win in any of their past two trips to this stadium. Considering that their last clash with this foe here had also finished as a tie, it will be safer to back a double chance this weekend.

In addition, Leganes have hardly shown promise in the final third at home. Miserably, they have found the back of the net just ten times up till now. Meanwhile, Real Sociedad have not been keen on racking up the goal scoring charts in their recent outings either.

Given that the reverse fixture of this matchup also witnessed both teams score no more than a goal apiece, expect fewer than 2.5 goals on the scorecards, by all means, this Sunday.
