Leganes vs Real Madrid - 15/04/2019 Preview

Leganes will face Real Madrid at Estadio Municipal de Butarque, in Leganes, in the 32nd Round of Spanish LaLiga. Leganes against Real Madrid is always the match with big interest especially during this season and LaLiga positions. Review our thoughts on this match here below.

 

Leganes

After two very unsuccessful seasons with the very thin verge of relegation to the lower league, we can call it a very strong and confident season. Leganes are showing very stable football with almost the same amount of wins, draws, and losses. In total, they won 10 during this season, however, they look much better at home ground. CD Leganes is showing the totally different game at Estadio Municipal de Butarque and in road games. At home, they won 7 and lost only twice, while away they won 3 and lost 9 matches. Hosts already played and lost against Real Madrid at the beginning of the year in 1/8 Final of Copa del Rey. Very likely, that Leganes will stay at the middle of the Standings till the end of the season. That result should be very sufficient, especially after previous seasons.

Guido Carrillo and Youssef En-Nesyri are the two strongest strikers in the squad with 14 goals combined. Both of them got the Man of the match awards 4 times each. In 15 home matches, Leganes conceded only 12 goals and this is one of the best results in LaLiga. Unfortunately, hosts will play an important match without Youssef, Alexander Szymanowski, Ezequiel Munoz, and Kenneth Omeruo. The squad looks very strong at aerial duels, protecting the lead and creating scoring chances. however, they are facing troubles at finishing scoring chances, keeping possession of the ball and defending against attacks down the wings.

 

Real Madrid

After a very bad streak in LaLiga, Copa del Rey and Champions League 1/8 Finals Real Madrid decided to call back Zinedine Zidane. With Zizou Real looked much confident and strong. They were strongest in Europe for 3 years, and then everything was ruined after Zidane and Cristiano left the club. In this season there are only LaLiga left. They should fight strongly for a second place in the league and work productively in summer’s transfer window. Guests won 4 out of their 5 last matches in LaLiga, since only Valencia remained unconquered. The Meringues conceded at least 1 goal since last year in 12 away games in a row. Of course, the new-old coach should give more confidence, motivate and give a chance to players who did not receive it with S. Solari. Save this season is no longer possible, but they can well prepare to the next.

After C. Ronaldo left the club, Karim Benzema got out the hidden skills out of the shadow. Now he is the best goalscorer in the squad and 4th best striker in the league with 17 goals and 5 assists. We easily can call him the player of the season in Real Madrid. Unfortunately, several main squad players will miss the next match. Vinicius Junior, Daniel Carvajal, and Thibaut Courtois will miss next match due to injuries. This season Real is very strong at attacking down the wings, creating chances through individual skill and creating scoring chances. However, their game struggling at avoiding the offside, defending counter attacks and defending against through ball attacks.

 

H2H

In the last two years, these teams met 7 times. Los Blancos won 5 and lost 2 matches. 4 games finished with goals from both teams with at least 3 goals scored. In this 2018/19 season, Real knocked out Leganes from Copa del Rey at 1/8 and won in LaLiga at Santiago Bernabeu with strong 4:0 result. Very last match Leganes won against Real in Copa del Rey second leg by 1:0 result, but that doesn’t effect Madridistas way to the quarter-final of Spanish Cup.
