The La Liga 2 meeting at The Estadio Municipal de Ipurúa on Saturday sees home side Eibar take on Leganés.
Our Eibar v Leganés tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below including the latest game odds.
Eibar fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being the 0-1 La Liga 2 triumph versus Ponferradina.
In that match, Eibar had 52% possession and 6 attempts on goal with 4 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Eibar was Stoichkov (55'). For their opponents, Ponferradina had 11 shots at goal with 4 on target.
Their latest results really do illustrate the point that there has been much resilience in the Eibar rearguard. Eibar have given the opposition little, seeing the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their previous six clashes standing at 2.
Previously, Leganés drew 2-2 in the La Liga 2 match with Levante.
In that match, Leganés had 41% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. The scorer for Leganés was José Arnáiz (32', 63'). At the other end, Levante UD got 18 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Campaña (28') and Rober Ibáñez (93') scored for Levante.
The stats don’t lie, and Leganés have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 7 goals overall. At the back, Leganés could really do with shoring things up. With no two games being the same, we will just have to wait and see if such a trend shall persist here in this game.
A look at their previous results shows us that Leganés:
- have not won against Eibar when they've played them away from home in the last 6 league matches. Not good.
- have not been beaten by Eibar when they've played them away from home in the last 2 matches in the league.
- are without an away win for the past 4 league games.

With a fully injury-free squad to choose from, the Leganés boss Imanol Idiákez does not have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match.
We think that Leganés could well find it tough to be putting a goal past this Eibar lineup who we think will get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore anticipating a very competitive game with a 1-0 winning margin for Eibar when all is said and done.
We’ll see what happens.
