Competition: Spanish Segunda

Market: Leganes win

Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport

Desperate to make up some ground in the top-six hunt this weekend, Leganes will welcome Ibiza to the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Sunday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, left disappointed last weekend as they eventually had to settle for a 0-0 stalemate away at Mirandes, Leganes have the feel of a side seeking a recent boost. Now drawing back-to-back Segunda blanks, Imanol Idiakez’s side have also won just one of their last seven appearances – a run that stems all the way back to January 6th. However, although the Madrid-based outfit might have shown some recent issues in the final third, they should rightfully be smelling a golden chance on Sunday lunchtime. Glad to make a return to the Estadio Municipal de Butarque this weekend, Leganes still have their sights set on trying to make a late charge for the play-off spots. Gaining a reputation for their extended success on home soil, it should be highlighted that Idiakez’s men have not tasted a single defeat in front of their own supporters since October 2nd.

As for the visitors, although Leganes might still be dreaming of the chance to mount a top-six charge this season, Ibiza are firmly battling it out at the other end of the Segunda standings. While Lucas Alcaraz’s side might have been last seen playing out an action-packed 2-2 draw at home against Huesca, the Sky Blues still find themselves sat rock-bottom of the table. Tipped as a leading relegation contender in 2023, Sunday’s guests also sit 13 points adrift of safety and already needing a minor miracle over the coming months. With their extended issues highlighted by a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Alaves on February 19th, Ibiza have failed to record a single Segunda victory since the start of December. Likewise, hit with a 2-0 loss when they welcomed Leganes to Can Misses five months ago, we are backing a similar outcome this weekend.

Bet: Leganes 7/10 to beat Ibiza in Sunday’s Segunda showdown @ 888sport
