Leganes vs Real Madrid: Preview and Predictions
Real Madrid will travel to Estadio Municipal de Butarque to take on Leganes in the match which should have been played back in December when Los Blancos featured FIFA Club World Cup. Zinedine Zidane’s men will have the chance to get the revenge for the shocking Copa del Rey elimination when Leganes stunned the defending La Liga champions with a 1-2 win away at Santiago Bernabeu in late-January.
The visitors will come into the match high on confidence having netted five goals in each of last two league ties. The 4-4-2 formation with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale up front and Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez on flanks seems to be doing miracles as Madrid look super prolific in the final third with this particular strategy.
Zidane used it once again on Sunday evening when Madrid packed five goals past Real Betis in an eight-goal thriller at Estadio Benito Villamarin. Marco Asensio was particularly inspired netting a brace, Cristiano Ronaldo confirmed his spell of excellent form by adding one himself, while even the substitute Karim Benzema got his name on the scoreline after a long time without a goal in Madrid’s shirt.
The story is completely opposite with the Legionaries who dropped down into the bottom half of the league standings after losing three on the trot in all competitions. The team led by Asier Garitano has failed to find the back of the net in last four matches across competitions and they will come into this off the back of a demolishing 3-0 loss away at Girona.
Leganes vs Real Madrid: Head-to-head
This will be the fifth head to hewed encounter between the two teams.
Real Madrid have won three on the bounce before Leganes’ 1-2 win knocked them out of this term’s Copa del Rey.
Los Blancos have notched as many as seven goals in two clashes with Leganes in the previous term of Primera Division.
Leganes vs Real Madrid: Prediction
The champions will head into this high on confidence and we do see them as massive favourites to back up the fine spell of form and pick up yet another victory which would see them overtake Valencia in the third position of the league standings.
Since Zidane’s men will have an even greater motivation to get the revenge for the Copa del Rey elimination, we do expect a high-scoring contest and at least three goals in Leganes’ net.
