RM vs LEG Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Real Madrid will be making a short trip within Madrid as they take on Leganes in the 2nd leg of round-of-16 Copa del Rey match at Estadio Municipal de Butarque, on Wednesday night (IST).
Leganes must have been hoping for the lightening to strike twice when they were paired against Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey second season running. After all, they famously knocked the Los Blancos out of the competition after winning the second leg 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu. And considering how Madrid have been playing this season, this was not the wildest dream of this tiny club from the outskirts of Madrid.
The 19-times Copa del Rey champions won the first leg 3-0 to move into a strong position in this particular tie. Sergi Ramos (44’ P), Lucas Vazquez (68’) and Vinicius Junior (77’) scored the all-important goals.
The Los Blancos returned to the winning ways in the La Liga as well as they won 1-2 away against Real Betis. The win sent Santiago Solari’s men one point clear of 5th placed Deportivo Alaves but they remain a huge 10 points adrift of leaders Barcelona.
Leganes won their game at the weekend as well, beating Huesca 1-0 at home. This was their first win in the last five La Liga games.
The Los Pepineros moved to 13th in the table with 22 points from the 19 games. But the danger of relegation still looms large on their head as 18th placed Rayo Vallecano are just 3 points away from them as things stand in La Liga.
