Promoted Leganes are battling to retain their La Liga status and three straight draws, including at Sevilla and Sociedad, means they remain five points clear of the relegation zone in 17th. Real, meanwhile, made it four wins on the bounce as they eased past Alaves to maintain their two point lead over Barca, whilst they also have a game in hand.
Leganes have given their survival chances a big boost with their home form as they’ve picked up seven points from their last three on their own turf, with each of those against fellow bottom-six sides. They’ve managed draws at home to Villarreal and Atletico this term and were beaten by just a single goal when Sevilla visited, so they have proven competitive against the top teams, though they were thumped 5-1 by Barca early on in the season
Real have won their last three away, but they’ve kept just one clean sheet in their last 11 on the road and failed to win four of these. Both teams to score is certainly of interest at 1.95 as a result of that and since Real have won only two of their last seven on their travels by more than one goal, we’re also going to side with the hosts +2 on the handicap.
