Leganes Prediction

Leganes sit in 13th place on the La Liga ladder and hold a comfortable looking nine-point cushion above the relegation zone as they prepare for the visit of Real Madrid on Monday night with the hosts in reasonably confident mood that they can take something from this clash.

Recent back-to-back wins against Getafe and Real Valladolid with 2-0 and 1-0 victories home and away respectively, along with a a point in a 1-1 draw away at Deportivo Alaves have meant that Monday night’s hosts have avoided being dragged into the relegation battle that’s raging below them, and they’ll be keen to pit their wits against Real Madrid on Monday night without any pressure.

At home, Leganes have suffered just one defeat out of their last 13 home matches which was a 2-0 loss to Girona, but a pretty solid looking home record of 7-6-2 18/12 will see a confident home outfit looking to further add to their points tally here.

Leganes forwards Carrillo (6 goals) and En-Nesyri (8 goals) look to be the host’s best chances of scoring in this clash, and they’ve also kept six clean sheets at home so far this season too.

 

Key-Facts – Leganes v Real Madrid

  • Leganes have lost just 1 of their last 13 matches at home in La Liga
  • Real Madrid have lost 5 away matches so far this season in La Liga
  • Real Madrid have kept just 1 clean sheet in their 15 away matches to date

 

Real Madrid Prediction

Real Madrid head into their Monday night clash against Leganes at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque having won four of their last five matches in La Liga with victories registered against Real Valladolid, Celta Vigo, Huesca and Eibar, while their one defeat during this five-match period was a 2-1 loss away at Valencia.

Although 3rd placed Real Madrid trail their crosstown rivals, Atletico, by five points, the visitors can reduce the deficit to just two with a win at Leganes here, and they also possess a comfortable nine-point margin over 5th placed Getafe as the visitors chase down another Champions League berth for next season.

However, form away from home hasn’t always been plain sailing for Real Madrid as their record of 8-2-5 29/26 indicates, and while they’ve won six out of their last eight away from home, there’s an element of vulnerability about the visitors that wasn’t there in seasons past.

Defeats at Sevilla, Deportivo Alaves, Barcelona, Eibar and Valencia underline their possible fragility which could again be on display this evening.

Betting Tips Verdict

Leganes are a stubborn unit at home and I’m expecting them to avoid a heavy defeat here.
