Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Thursday’s football game at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua pits together Eibar and Leganes. Both sides are eager to secure the La Liga survival, but, as things stand now, Leganes will find it hard to avoid relegation to Segunda Division. The capital club did well to beat Espanyol in the relegation six-pointer at the weekend, but they are still seven points behind the safe zone.
This has to go down as yet another must-win game for Leganes, who are likely to go all guns blazing at Eibar. Los Armeros aim to escape the danger zone, and seeing that the visitors are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach, we predict that the hosts will have a number of opportunities to score on the break. Eibar defender Anaitz Arbilla should recover in time to face Leganes, while Roque Mesa returns from suspension for the visitors.
