Leganes vs Real Sociedad predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as La Real aim to further their push for European football.
Leganes vs Real Sociedad Preview
Real Sociedad are in Madrid twice over the next few days. They travel to the Bernabeu in the Copa del Rey this coming week but first they have a league date with Leganes at Butarque. La Real are right in the thick of the European battle and will be targeting three points from this game but Leganes cannot be discounted.
The South Madrid outfit have improved since the appointment of Javier Aguirre. They’ve only lost 2 of their last 10 competitive games, one of which was the 5-0 defeat at Camp Nou in the Copa on Thursday night where they rested a number of players. Despite that upturn in form, they’ve not really managed to make serious progress towards their ultimate goal of beating the drop and they remain the relegation favourites heading into this.
Real Sociedad come into the game fresh from a 3-1 victory over Osasuna in the Copa del Rey. Youngsters Martin Ødegaard and Alexander Isak both shone in that game and underlined the potential that exists in this side. La Real’s league form hasn’t been brilliant of late though with 3 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats from their last 9, someway off the kind of form that will fire them into the Champions League.
This match will see a real contrast of styles and it’ll be interesting to see how it pans out. Leganes were hammered 3-0 by Getafe in their last home game and many wrote their survival chances off after that but they responded well to get a draw at the Wanda Metropolitano in their next game.
Leganes vs Real Sociedad Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
This is a tough one to call. Real Sociedad are clearly the superior team but Leganes have got back to being quite tough to play against and difficult to beat in the vast majority of their games since the change in coach. They could get a point from this, as they did when they visited Anoeta in their first game under the guidance of Aguirre a couple of months back despite having limited possession in that one.
