Leganes are one of the three teams in the Spanish La Liga who will go into the matchday-10 without a home win. The newly promoted side still manage to stay 2 points clear of the relegation on the back of their three wins, all of which have come away from home. They are currently on the back of a 2 match losing streak and were thrashed 4-0 by Malaga last weekend. They lost in 3 of their 4 home matches this season, with a lone point coming from a draw against Atletico Madrid on the matchday 2 of the season.
Real Sociedad are currently 7th in the league and 2-point short of the European Qualification spot. But they were not consistent this season, which is clearly evident from their stats of 4 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses from their 9 matches so far. To be more precise, they do well at home as they picked 3 wins, 1 draw from their 5 matches this season and a lone win came against Real Madrid in the opening week. The lost 3 of their 4 away matches this season, but their only win on the road was against a newly promoted side Osasuna.

Leganes vs Real Sociedad: Prediction
Since there are no previous records of matches between these two sides, we are heavily reliant on the form guide to draw predictive analysis for this particular fixture. To make things more complicated the home versus away form of these two sides are pretty similar as Leganes keen picking points away from home and Sociedad in front of their fans. However, Real Sociedad gets the favourite tag as they are a more experienced side and have already defeated one promoted side this season away from home. And this will be the kind of matches they eye for maximum points from road games.
But one thing we can be very certain is the number of goals this match will produce. Both teams have difficulties in their defence and are conceding heavily at the moment. Also they are capable of scoring goals and both have scored in 8 of their 9 matches this season. So both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is a better pick for this game.
As derived from the two analysis above, punters who like to take a risk can go for a correct full-time score of 2-1 in favour of Real Sociedad for this fixture.
