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.
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.
