All Leganés v Burgos match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - plus the latest match odds.
Leganés will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 1-0 La Liga 2 defeat last time out to UD Las Palmas.
In that match, Leganés had 46% possession and 3 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. UD Las Palmas had 7 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Álvaro Lemos (14') scored for UD Las Palmas.
It has been seldom in recent games that Leganés have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Leganés have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 8 goals in the process.
In the game prior to this, Burgos drew 0-0 in the La Liga 2 tie with Real Oviedo.
In that match, Burgos had 53% possession and 18 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Real Oviedo had 8 attempts on goal with 2 on target.
A tendency of at least one side getting a clean sheet in games involving Burgos has been evident recently. Examining their last 6 meetings reveals that it has happened 6 times. In those clashes, their opponents have managed a goal aggregate of 0 while Burgos have scored 2. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this next game, of course.

Team News: Leganés
The Leganés manager Imanol Idiákez will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this game with a completely healthy squad available to select from.
We think that Leganés could go for a 5-3-2 formation for this one, utilising Daniel Jimenez, Jorge Miramon, Allan Nyom, Jorge Sáenz, K. Josiah Omeruo, Riza Durmisi, Fede Vico, Iker Undabarrena, Gaku Shibasaki, José Manuel Arnáiz and Yacine Qasmi.
Team News: Burgos
Due to a mostly available group of players, there’s only the one fitness issue for the Burgos gaffer Julián Calero to be concerned about. Andy Rodríguez (Cruciate Ligament Injury) misses out for this game.
From our viewpoint, Burgos appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 lineup, choosing José Antonio Caro, Jesús Areso, Aitor Córdoba, Grego Sierra, Fran Garcia, Unai Elgezabal, Miguel Angel Atienza, Curro Sanchez, Pablo Valcarce, Álex Bermejo and Mourad El Ghezouani.
Burgos have the firepower to put a goal past this Leganés outfit, but that might not be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re predicting both teams to score in a 2-1 win for Leganés when the full-time whistle blows. Should be a good one.
