Eibar host Leganes in La Liga soccer action from the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua on Thursday afternoon.
Eibar enters this match in 17th place on 35 points with a record of 9 wins, 8 draws and 17 losses following back-to-back losses after a 1-0 loss to Sevilla in their last match. In the loss to Sevilla, each side had one yellow card in the first half but there was no goalscoring. In the second half, Sevilla took the lead in the 56th minute and despite Eibar’s best efforts to get back into the game, Sevilla would ride the lone goal to the finish line and hold on for the win. Fabian Orellana leads Eibar in scoring with 8 goals with a team-high 7 assists while Charles has 6 goals and Kike Garcia has 5 goals this season. Marko Dmitrovic leads Eibar in goal, conceding 1.48 goals per 90 minutes with 8 clean sheets in 33 league appearances this season.
Leganes on the other side, come into this match in 19th place on 28 points with a record of 6 wins, 10 draws and 18 losses after picking up a 1-0 win over Espanyol in their last match. In the win over Espanyol, The match was tied at zero at halftime with just a single booking going Leganes’ way, but Jonathan Silva would fire Leganes in front in the 53rd minute of play. Espanyol had 66% possession in the second half, but it was all for naught as Leganes held on for a huge three points in the relegation battle. Oscar Rodriguez leads Leganes in scoring with 9 goals while Roque Mesa has a team-high 3 assists this season.
The heavy plus money with Leganes is tempting considering they need the points to climb out of the relegation zone and to try to catch Eibar. However, Eibar can take a huge step towards safety with a win here and it doesn’t hurt that Eibar hasn’t lost to Leganes in the league since the two were in La Liga together dating back to 2016. With that said, I expect a tight game throughout and honestly wouldn't be surprised with a scoreless draw, extending Leganes' misery against Eibar, so I'll side with the under in the goal market here.
