Eibar is welcoming Leganes to Ipurua Municipal Stadium in round 35 in Spanish LaLiga.
Eibar has been solid immediately after the restart with 4 straight games without a loss, but they have lost their last 2 games in a row, without a scored goal I might add. Eibar is in 17th place in the standings with 35 points, 34 scored goals, and 51 conceded goals, outside the relegation zone, but only 6 points ahead of Mallorca. Eibar’s offense has been sketchy at best this season, but their defense has been really bad, and Eibar is among the worse defensive teams in LaLiga. In their latest LaLiga game against Sevilla on the road, Eibar has had only 38% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, and low 68% of the correct passes. Eibar was defending well in this game, but they still conceded a goal in 56th minute, and Eibar has lost this match 1-0. Orellana has scored 8 goals and 7 assists for Eibar this season, while Charles added 6 goals. Ramis is the only injured player for Eibar, while Arbilla is still questionable. The schedule is on the easier side for the rest of the season, which means their chances of staying in LaLiga are solid, but Eibar will need 1 more win to be sure.
Leganes is the weakest offensive team in LaLiga with only 25 scored goals, and their defense isn’t great, but it’s not the worst with 49 conceded goals. With only 1 win in their last 7 games since the restart, Leganes is in 19th place with 28 points, 7 points away from the safe zone. In their last LaLiga match against Espanyol on the road, Leganes has had only 37% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, and low 66% of the correct passes. This was the derby of the bottom of the standings, and either team would have bought themselves a chance to get out of the relegation zone. Eibar was the worst team here, but they were able to win this match 0-1. Oscar is Eibar’s top goalscorer with 9 goals, while En-Nesyri added 4 goals. Carillo, Osca, and Omeruo are all injured and will not be in the lineup for this match. Leganes might have won their latest game, but they were pretty lucky in doing so, and this win doesn’t mean that their struggles are over because Leganes is missing some important players of this match. There are still enough games left for Leganes to get out of the relegation zone, at least in theory, but I don’t see it happening because Leganes can’t score enough goals to compensate for their defense.
When playing at home, Eibar has not lost to Leganes in their last 4 games, while Leganes is 2-6-9 on the road this season. I don’t expect a lot of goals in this game, and that’s why I will give it a shot at a draw.
