Real Sociedad vs Leganes
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 12th May 2018
Kick-off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Anoeta (San Sebastian).
Real Sociedad lost 1-0 at Sevilla last weekend, but coming back to home this Saturday, they stand a good chance to get back to winning ways against Leganes, win-less on the road since October last year.
Despite the turbulent run away from home, the Royals have a solid record in recent home games in the LaLiga. They won three on the bounce scoring 11 goals, having beaten the likes of Atletico Madrid and local rivals Bilbao netting three times each. Also, 6 of Sociedad’s last 7 home games are wins.
Leganes are 17th in the standings and are out of relegation threat with a 11 point lead over the bottom three with 2 games left to play this season. The Legionaries lost at home to Levante 0-3 last week and are currently on a four match losing streak managing a point in the process.
However, Leganes have been decent in home games this season and it is the away form that keep them at the bottom half of the table. They managed just 3 away wins this season, all of those came inside the first four trips. It has been 14 road games since, lost 11 in the process and are currently on a 6 match losing streak.

Real Sociedad vs Leganes: Predictions
The sides have little to play for, yet Sociedad can move to the top half of the table with wins in their remaining games. Coming on the back of an excellent home form and some lethal form in front of goal, they must ease past a side like Leganes who lost their last 6 and 11 of their last 14 away games.
