Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
There will be fireworks when Eibar and Leganes lock horns at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua on Sunday. Los Armeros aim to recover from a shocking 2-1 loss to newcomers Eldense, but they will have to do it without defender Roberto Correa, who remains on the sidelines through injury. Influential forward Stoichkov is widely expected to return to the starting XI after coming off the bench in the last league fixture.
The capital club, on the other hand, proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Alcorcon and Albacete, which is probably the main reason why we predict the visitors are going to grab something from the match. Both Jorge Miramon and Iker Undabarrena continue to miss out with injuries for the away team. You should know that the two sides played out a goalless draw in their last meeting in the Spanish second tier.
