Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After playing out a goalless draw with Levante in Valencia, Leganes will be looking to return to winning ways in La Liga when they host Real Sociedad at their Estadio Municipal de Butarque. The capital club failed to score in previous two league fixtures and they do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of their first match of the year. Anyhow, you should have in mind that Leganes have suffered only two defeats at home so far this term. Real Sociedad did remarkably well to beat Sevilla (3-1) at their Estadio Municipal de Anoeta on Matchday 17, with the team putting an end to their five-game winless run in the national championship. The Basques are eager to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but seeing that Leganes are tough to beat at home, we predict the two teams are going to share the spoils in Sunday’s football match.
Highlighted Player (Martin Mantovani):
After spending his youth career at Banfield, Kimberley and Cadetes San Martin, Martin Mantovani signed for Atletico Madrid in 2006. The Argentine defender played seven games for Atletico Madrid B in the 2009/2010 season and he joined Cultural Leonesa at the end of the season. He made 32 appearances for Leonesa in the 2010/2011 season and in 2011 he moved to Atletico Baleares. Despite establishing himself as a starter at Atletico Baleares, he decided to join Oviedo in 2012. He played for los Azules in the 2012/2013 campaign and at the end of the season he was sent on loan to Leganes. After impressing with Leganes in the 2013/2014 campaign, the club chiefs decided to sign a permanent deal with the Argentine centre back. He played regularly for the club in the 2015/2016 Segunda Division campaign and, no doubt, he helped the team secure promotion to Spanish elite division.
