Leganes vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Leganes have pulled away from relegation trouble in La Liga with five wins in their last 10 league games to rise to 11th in the standings.
Real Madrid are out of the title race in La Liga – they languish 13 points behind league leaders Barcelona and are also out of all cup competitions.
Recent league victories over struggling Real Valladolid, Celta Vigo, Huesca and Eibar, coupled with a loss at Valencia, do not carry great significance, although the return of boss Zinedine Zidane has revitalised the club and rejuvenated their confidence.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 6/4 while Madrid to win both halves is at 3/1.
One to watch for Leganes: Guido Carrillo is Leganes’s top scorer in La Liga this season with six and the Argentine is priced at 13/5 to continue his good form in front of goal this season in this clash.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Karim Benzema has netted 25 goals this season including six in his last five, while he is priced at 1 to continue his good form in front of goal this season in this clash.
Long shot: Real Madrid have failed to score in two of their last seven domestic games while just 11 goals have gone in at both ends across the last seven matches involving Leganes. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 14/1.
