Barcelona are expected to win this battle of La Liga sides in the last sixteen of the Copa del Rey. It is usually the point where sides start sending out stronger starting elevens.

It is a tough draw for Leganes, who despite having scored on their three previous trips to the Nou Camp, have come away with defeat in each of them. Will this follow suit?

Barcelona can progress from the cup tie

Barcelona had an upset in the league last weekend, suffering a 2-0 loss at Valencia, which saw them surrender top spot to Real Madrid. That was a new manager Quique Setien’s first defeat with the club. Barcelona made their entry in the Copa del Rey in the last round, claiming a 2-1 win at Ibiza.

That’s not the type of game which calls for a strongest starting eleven, but Barca did have the likes of Ivan Rakitic, Frenkie De Jong and Antoine Griezmann in the starting eleven. Across their last eight games in all competitions, Barcelona have taken three wins only.

Our betting prediction:
Barcelona 2-0
6/1

(odds taken 20:50 GMT, Tuesday 28th January)

Barca have taken two wins in their last five played (D1 L2) so it’s not been a return from them lately. However, even though have taken one clean sheet only in their last six games in all competitions, the likelihood is that they will be able to keep a struggling Leganes off the scoreboard at the Nou Camp.

 

Leganes have interest elsewhere

Considering that Leganes are stuck in the relegation zone in the Spanish top flight, they could be forgiven for not caring too much about this away fixture in the cup. Even though they are in a tough spot in the league, their form has improved since the start of December.

They are W4 D4 L1 in their last nine games across all competitions. They opened their Copa del Rey account at FC Andorra and only got through thanks to a penalty shoot-out success. They followed that up with a 4-0 win at third-tier Murcia before landing a 1-0 success at Ebro in the last round, also from the third tier.

Basically, three of their last four wins in that aforementioned sequence of form came against lower-tiered opponents in the cup. The only two away games that Leganes have won this season in any competition were those at Murcia and Ebro. To their credit, they dug in to play out a 0-0 draw at Atletico Madrid in their last away game in the league.

Barcelona vs Leganes Betting Advice
