Eibar vs Leganes prediction, preview, team news and more | Segunda Division 2021-22

Looking to end their winless start to the Segunda Liga campaign, Leganes take a trip to the Ipurua Municipal Stadium to face Eibar on Saturday.

The hosts, on the other hand, claimed a narrow 1-0 win over Burgos last time out and will be looking to build on that performance.

Eibar picked up their first win of the new Segunda Liga season last Sunday when they beat Burgos 1-0 away from home.

Thirty-year-old Spaniard José Corpas came up trumps for Los Armeros as he scored the only goal of the game in the 76th minute.

Prior to that, Eibar failed to pick up a point from their opening two games as they suffered defeats against Huesca and SD Ponferradina.

Head coach Gaizka Garitano will now hope his side can build on their recent win and pick up the win to get their season up and running.

Meanwhile, Leganes were denied their first win of the season last time out as they fell to a 2-1 loss against UD Ibiza Eivissa.

Following an uneventful first half, Sergio Castel Martinez and Ekain Zenitagoia scored on either side of José Manuel Arnáiz’s equalizer to hand UD Ibiza Eivissa the win.

This followed a disappointing goalless draw against 10-man Burgos in their league curtain-raiser.

Leganes head into Saturday’s game having won just one of their last five games in all competitions and will be looking to end this poor spell.
