Barcelona vs Leganés Prediction
Barcelona lost to Valencia in the Spanish Copa del Rey final last season and again lost to those adversaries at the end of the week. They are back in Spanish Copa del Rey activity and are home to relegation-threatened Leganes. The two sides have had their battles in getting to the last sixteen stages. Home advantage will be key right now Leganes having a poor away record.
Barcelona ceased from fielding a strong eleven against Ibiza in the past round of this competition and nearly took care of it. Quique Setien’s men were trailing by a goal at the break, and it took them about twenty minutes into the second half to discover an equalizer through Antoinne Griezmann.
The French forward then turned friend in need for the Catalans by finishing a brace in the dying minutes of stoppage time, helping his side to a narrow 2-1 triumph. Truth be told however, Barcelona have not been their typical self in their ongoing matchups. Wretchedly, they have left away with the success in only 50% of their previous six conflicts in all competitions.
In the interim, Leganes edged past the Ebro in their respective Spanish Copa Del Rey matchup after Jonathan Silva scored the only goal of the game. The visitors were a lot of the better side in that last matchup, all things considered and completed the hour and a half with six shots on focus, rather than their enemies who oversaw only two.
Nonetheless, it’s implied that the visiting unexpected have their work removed right now. First off, Barcelona are yet to concede defeat at home this season. In sharp difference, Leganes have tasted achievement only twice in their previous twelve excursions generally speaking.
To exacerbate the situation, the visitors have been at the losing end in every one of their previous three visits to this arena. Given the obvious contrast in stature of the teams required too, it would seem that Barcelona are in for a simple success this week.
Moreover, the hosts have been merciless in their past h2h meetings at home. Their last two experiences with one another here have finished in a 3-1 scoreline for Barcelona.
Considering that the visitors have likewise yielded an aggregate of sixteen goals from their excursions in the La Liga alone this term, rely on the Catalans to rack up the goals tally come Thursday.
After a year ago’s shock 2-1 defeat to Valencia in the Spanish Copa del Rey final, Barcelona will be urgent to recover their Copa crown. No team has won the competition more than the Catalans.
It will be to some degree a wonder if, at the Nou Camp, Leganes can leave away with a positive result. Notwithstanding, Barcelona find themselves in somewhat of a slump, so Leganes will feel this is as acceptable a period as any to take on the Spanish giants.
Be that as it may, the home side ought to have all that anyone could need to secure triumph on Thursday night.
