Date: on the 16th of January, 2019 (Wednesday)
Match start: 21:30 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Copa del Rey. 1/8 finals.
Leganes will host Real Madrid on the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Wednesday in frames of the 1/8 finals of the Copa del Rey. This two-legged tie is one of the two which possess no intrigue after the first matches.
At the end of the HT of the Madrid fight a week ago, Leganes had some chances to wait for something good but the fresher of the Meringues Vinícius Júnior has taken the reins of power into his hands, having decided that it is too insulting to leave the Copa del Rey because of Leganes two times in a row.
The football players of Asier Garitano have no chances to improve 0:3 on Santiago Bernabéu but to improve themselves – yes.
Last week-end they have won over Huesca and thanks to this they have killed two birds with one stone: moved away from the relegation zone and improved their mood before the match against Real.
It is clear that the whole starting line-up of Real Madrid was playing on Benito Villamarín and the line-up of Leganes will be missed.
But the factor of tiredness and practically solved task will influence the game of Real Madrid.
We doubt that Real Madrid will start to destroy Leganes for the second time running.
