The Real Madrid vs. Leganes match will be played on Wednesday, January 9, at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Madrid. This is the first leg of Coppa del Rey 8th finals. In the previous round, Real Madrid eliminated Melilla by 10:1 on aggregate, while Leganes was better than Rayo Vallecano buy 3:2 on aggregate.


  • Real Madrid failed to win in their last two matches they played. We saw over 3.5 goals in three out of their last four matches in all competitions.
  • Leganes failed to record a victory in their previous four matches. We saw under 2.5 goals in their last five games in all competitions.


These teams played seven times against each other since 2016, when Leganes achieved promotion to La Liga. In this period, Real Madrid recorded six wins, while Leganes had only one victory. It is interesting that the only victory for Leganes came on Santiago Bernabeu in the last season, in Coppa del Rey match.


After having a solid start on Real Madrid bench, Santiago Sollari failed to record a victory in his last two encounters against Villareal and Real Sociedad and allowed Barcelona to extended their lead to 10 points. Coppa del Rey is low on his list of priorities, but the third match in the row without a win would be too much. Therefore, we should expect that Real will be motivated to win the upcoming match.

Leganes is only two points above the relegation line at the moment, so they are also focused on La Liga. However, they know how to eliminate Real Madrid from Coppa del Rey - they did that in the last season and they will try to do that again.
