Real Madrid vs Leganes Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions


Despite their problems this season, Los Blancos have been strong defensively at home and we think the value lies in backing them to keep a clean sheet

Real Madrid will be looking for their first win of 2019 when they host Leganes in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday.

Los Blancos have endured a difficult start to the year, drawing 2-2 at Villarreal and going down 2-0 at home to Real Sociedad, so Madrid need a cup victory to help recover some confidence.

Leganes knocked Real Madrid out of this competition last season with a famous 2-1 win at the Bernabeu, although Los Pepineros remain huge outsiders against their more illustrious neighbours.

Latest odds

Real Madrid have lost three of their last nine home matches in all competitions and have only won one of their last five home games in the Copa Del Rey.

888Sport offer a victory for Santiago Solari’s side at 27/100 (1.27). Leganes for their part can be backed at 9/1 (10.00) with the draw on offer at 9/2 (5.50).

Team news

Gareth Bale, Marco Asensio, Marcos Llorente and Mariano Diaz were all unavailable for the defeat on Sunday and look likely to miss out. Keylor Navas is likely to replace Thibaut Courtois in goal, while there should be another start for teenage forward Vinicius.

Leganes midfielder Gerard Gumbau was sent off at the weekend defeat to Espanyol in La Liga but is available to play in the Copa Del Rey. 

Preview

There is plenty of pressure on Real Madrid heading into this game and not only is a win needed but also a big performance.

This season, high-scoring home wins for Los Blancos have been few and far between, with their biggest victory at the Bernabeu actually coming against Leganes in a 4-1 league success back on 1st September.

Seven of Madrid’s nine home league matches have seen under 2.5 goals and Leganes have one of the poorest away records in the Spanish top flight, having won only one of their last 25 La Liga matches on the road.

Tips and predictions

Real Madrid are offered at 97/100 (1.97) to keep a clean sheet as they have done in six of their nine home matches against La Liga opposition this term.

Leganes have also failed to score in six of their eight away league matches and that trend could well continue on Wednesday evening in the Copa del Rey.
