Real Sociedad vs Leganes Prediction & Match Preview

Real Sociedad vs Leganes
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Friday, 8 November 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Reale Seguros Stadium (San Sebastian).

The battle of extremes in all sense. Leganes, the dead-last placed team in the competition, is on the road and is about to take on a squad that currently enjoys a spot in the podium of the table.

After 12 match-days, which is almost one-third of the league schedule, Los Pepineros have been able to post a single win, which had come against a newly-promoted Mallorca. Moreover, they have so far scored a total of just six goals, which amounts to mere 0.50 goals per league appearance, and in return, they have conceded the most number of goals of all the 20 units in contention.

Suffice it to say, the tag of the favorites easily goes to the hosts.

Real Sociedad vs Leganes Prediction

Lega lost against Eibar the last day, and this coming despite they had the luxury of home advantage. Moreover, the former had found the back of the net first too. But the lead was equalized, and later the winner came in the 85th minute to pile on the misery of the bottom-most team in the competition.

Imanol Alguacil’s men too have a similar story to tell, only they ended on the victors’ side at the end. In spite of the away handicap, they fought well against Granada, who had been at the top of the table, even above Barca, and Real Madrid. Keep note that, till the 89th minute, scores were level at 1-1, before the winner came seconds from the full-time whistle.

To carry on, Leganes lost six of their former seven match-ups and was unbeaten in 12 of their preceding 13. On the road, they are winless in their prior six games and failed to score in four of their last five.

On the other hand, their opposite number was unbeaten in ten of their preceding fourteen overall games and was so in nine of their prior twelve home ties.

Finally, the Cucumber Growers are yet to post a win at this venue, and if not for a sole draw, they might even have posted a 100% losing record.

Taking these trends into consideration, count on the visitors to emerge victorious this Friday.
