Leganes – Real Madrid, Copa del Rey Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LEGANES - REAL MADRID
Despite losing 0-3 in the first match at Bernabeu, it can not be claimed at 100% that Leganes have no chance to go through. Not after we know the terrible hesitancy of Real Madrid during the season. Definitely this is probably the best period for Leganes during the season. They only have 2 losses in the last 12 official games and they have not lost at home since mid-September in an official match.
It is important to take into account both Real Madrid’s recent victories. This over Betis is in focus as Los Blancos showed a character and although Betis is a very tough rival, the guests are not in shape and they have very important absentees, they managed to get the 3 points. Against Leganes expect many reserves and Real Madrid rarely retains clean sheets in visits this season.
Specifically, in this game it’s not so important for them if they concede. Naturally, Real Madrid will not want to lose, but Solari has the opportunity to experiment. We will hardly see a closed match. Leganes have scored a goal in 15 of their last 16 home games in all competitions, so we expect them to do so now. Our main prediction is Real Madrid to concede a goal at 1.45. Leganes have not a very stable defense, so our alternative option directly is for Both teams to score at 1.80
