Real Sociedad to Win
While the guests are in terrible form and without a win in La Liga in the last six games, they are still in the top half of the standings. Meanwhile, Leganes is close to the relegation zone in La Liga 2.
With that in mind, our prediction is for Real Sociedad to win this game and break their bad run. We expect them to take this game seriously and field a strong team to secure a place in the Top 16 of the Spanish cup.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams have scored in four of the last five head-to-head duels between Leganes and Real Sociedad, so we can see the same happening when the two teams meet on Wednesday.
After all, both teams have scored in 50% of Leganes games in La Liga 2 this season, so that wouldn't be such a surprise. We certainly expect the guests to score and with them being in poor form, Leganes should be able to get one past them.
