Our football match prediction:
Eibar impressed in La Liga last season, but they have been struggling to find their best form in the Spanish top flight at the start of the campaign. Los Armeros defeated Malaga at Estadio La Rosaleda on the opening day of the season, but they head into Friday’s football match against Leganes following back-to-back losses to the likes of Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla. Eibar aim to return to winning ways and they are definitely capable of beating Leganes in front of home fans. Over the years los Armeros have turned their Estadio Municipal de Ipurua into a real fortress and we predict that they are going to record their first home win of the season this weekend. Leganes failed to impress in a 2-1 home defeat to Getafe at the weekend and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to upset

Highlighted Team (Leganes):
Leganes are a Spanish football club that have mostly been playing in lower leagues. Los Pepineros play their home games at Batarque (Madrid) and the capacity of the stadium is just 8,138. Leganes secured their promotion to the Spanish La Liga for the first time ever in 2016 and, no doubt, that is considered the club’s biggest success. Leganes’ bitterest rivals are fellow capital club Getafe and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the South Madrid derby. The colour of the team’s home kit is white and blue, whilst their away kits are green. The likes of Pierre Webo, Samuel Eto’o, Ivan Zarandona, Jose Chamot, Catanha, Ruben Falcon, Jordi Lardin and Pedro Lago are famous players who were part of the Batarque outfit in the past. Lady Maria Victoria Pavon is the first female president in the history of the club and she has been in charge of the club since 2009.
