Real Madrid vs Leganés – Copa del Rey : This Wednesday night, Real Madrid hosts Leganés at the Bernabéu, on a match counting towards the 2nd leg of the Copa del Rey’s quarter-finals.
Real Madrid is in 4th place of La Liga with 35 points conquered, having 10 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses.
When it comes to goals, the Merengues have 39 goals scored and 18 goals conceded, which therefore results on an average of 3 goals per match.
Their record at the Bernabéu has been underwhelming, with the team only getting 6 wins on the 11 rounds they’ve played at home.
Zidane’s team has gained a new morale injection after having battered Deportivo 7-1 on the last league match.
On the previous rounds of this Copa del Rey, the team from the capital has eliminated Fuenlabrada and Numancia.
Leganés is in 13th place of La Liga with 25 points conquered, having a record of 7 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses. Their goal ratio counts with 17 goals scored and 19 goals conceded, presenting this way an average of 1.9 goals per match.
Their away record is weaker than their home record, having only gotten 3 wins on the 11 away matches they’ve played in the league.
Garitano’s team is going through one of their worst streaks of the season, recording 3 losses and 1 draw on the last 4 matches they’ve played. On the previous rounds, Leganés has eliminated Valladolid and Villarreal.
Real Madrid vs Leganés – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The first leg match has finished with a slim victory favouring the Merengues.
With the league title practically decided in favour of Barcelona, this Copa del Rey gains more importance for Zidane’s men, so I believe they will have a convincing performance here, namely on the goals scored chapter.
With the attacking engine finally clicking after their last match, I see Real Madrid (even without Cristiano) having all conditions to score at least 3 goals against Leganés,
a team that has conceded on their last 4 matches almost the same amount of goals they had conceded in the last 3 months.
