Barcelona vs Leganes: Match preview
On Thursday, there are two more matches left in the eighth finals of the Spanish King’s Cup. For you this time we have analyzed the duel that will be played at the Camp Nou, where Barcelona will host Leganes.
Barcelona team news:
As things stand now, it is safe for Barcelona to stand well on the table, given the way they have played since the start of the championship. Specifically, Leo Messi and teammates are currently in second place in the Spanish La Liga table.
It is certain that the two teams will literally until the last round, but what Barcelona’s footballers have shown over the past month is far from satisfying.
It must be admitted that the team has not been providing weaker results in a long time. Leo Messi and teammates were defeated in a visit to Valencia, and that match ended with a score of 2: 0.
Probable lineup: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Piqué, Lenglet; Ansu Fati, Vidal, De Jong, Rakitic, Firpo; Messi, Griezmann.
Leganes team news:
Leganes players have big problems this season and it will be a real premium if they survive in the company of the best at the end of the championship. The situation is alarming at the moment. Namely, after the 21st round, this team is in the last place in the standings with only 15 points.
This is really not enough if this team thinks that in the next season they will play in the highest quality of Spanish football. What may be a little joy to all the fans of this team is that their football players have been providing much better games in recent weeks. Probably the best indicator of all this is last week’s away draw against Atletico Madrid .
Previously, Leganes has been defeated on their own court. One thing that should be emphasized is the fact that before that defeat, Leganes managed to remain undefeated in his three consecutive matches, although the rivals in those duels were not at all naive.
As for the Spanish King Cup, there is no doubt that Leganes will focus more on La Liga, but it is also certain that they will not overdo it in advance as they simply have nothing to lose in these duels.
Probable lineup: Cuéllar; Rosales, Tarín, Siovas, Awaziem, Silva; Pérez, Recio, Óscar, Rodrigues; Braithwaite.
It seems that Barcelona is likely to go with everything against the Leganes squad, which has no over-ambition when it comes to Cup competitions. Because of all this, we think this will be a duel with a lot of goals.
