Leganes is hosting the new LaLiga champion, Real Madrid, in round 38 in Spanish LaLiga.
Leganes is on a 4-game streak without a loss, 3 wins, and a draw, and thanks to this streak, Leganes has a chance to get out of the relegation zone. During this stretch, Leganes’ defense has been outstanding, and they haven’t conceded a single goal, while their offense was good with 4 scored goals. Overall, Leganes has one of the weakest offenses in LaLiga with only 28 scored goals, while their defense was solid with 49 conceded goals. In their last LaLiga game against Bilbao on the road, Leganes has had 40% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, and solid 77% of the correct passes. Leganes has won this match 0-2, and with it, 3 precious points in their battle. Oscar is Leganes’ top goal scorer with 9 goals, while Mesa added 3 assists. Rodrigues and Szymanowski are both injured, Carillo, Oscar, and Omeruo are still questionable, and Perez is suspended because of the yellow cards. If only Leganes has played this well a few games sooner, they would have been outside the relegation zone right now, and the pressure they are feeling would have been gone, but this is soccer, and someone has to be relegated.
With absolutely stunning soccer since the restart, Real Madrid has won all of their games, 10 in a row, and with that, Real Madrid has become the new champion of LaLiga 1 game before the end of the season. Real Madrid is in the first place with 86 points, which could turn into 89 points, 68 scored goals, and only 23 conceded goals. Real Madrid has absolutely deserved to win the title this season, especially because of their defense that was the best in LaLiga this season. Benzema has been Real Madrid’s best player and a top goal scorer with 21 goals and 8 assists, while Ramos added 10 goals, and Modric added 7 assists. Marcelo and Hazard are still questionable, but they could get a few minutes in the last game of the season. In their last LaLiga game against Villarreal at home, Real was the better team with 56% of ball possession, massive 7 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and solid 89% of the correct passes. With 2 goals by Benzema, Real Madrid has won this match 2-1, and with it the title of LaLiga. The Champions League is coming up, and in their current form, Real Madrid could beat Manchester City after losing the first leg of the Round of 16. I’m sure there will be some changes in the starting lineup for Real Madrid ahead of this game, but they will look to win this match and to finish the season on a high note, with a win.
Real Madrid hasn’t won any of their last 2 games against Leganes on the road, but I will still side with Real Madrid even though Leganes will get relegated if they lose in this game.
