Real Madrid v Leganes
On Sunday morning this weekend in La Liga we see Asier Garitano take his Leganes side on the trip to Santiago Bernabéu Stadium to face Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid. This one should be a comfortable home victory.
The home side Real Madrid head into the visit of Leganes on the back of a busy week which sees them play their third game in the space of the last seven days. They will be hoping to get back to winning ways after their disappointing result in midweek. After finishing 2nd by just 1 point last season, they will be looking to take the title of Barca this time round. They’ve made the perfect start in doing so as they currently find themselves sat in 2nd place in the table having collected 24 points 24 points from 10 matches, 2 points ahead of Barcelona in 2nd place. They haven’t lost a competitive game since April last season when they were beaten by Wolfsburg in the Champions League. However they’ve had some dodgy results which has seen them draw against Eibar and Las Palmas. Their last La Liga match saw them beat Deportivo Alaves 4-1 away thanks to hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo and one from Alvaro Morata.
Their most recent game was on Wednesday evening when they travelled to Pepsi Arena in Poland to face Jacek Magiera’s Legia Warsaw in the Champions League. A wonder goal from Bale in the first minute and then a second from Benzema put Madrid 2-0 up after half an hour. However goals in the 40th, 58th and 83rd from the hosts saw them come back to lead 3-2 with just a few minutes left to play. Kovacic broke their hearts in the 85th minute when he snatched a point for the Spaniards. This meant that Madrid sit 2nd in Group F now, 2 points behind Borussia Dortmund.
The away side Leganes go into the trip to Real Madrid hoping that they can end their losing streak by getting what would be a fantastic point. After being promoted from the second division last season, their main aim this year will have just been to survive. They are finding it pretty difficult as they currently find themselves just above the relegation zone in 16th place having collected 10 points from their opening 10 fixtures. They’ve lost their last 4 on the bounce and unless a miracle happens, it is going to be 5 defeats come the end of Saturday. Their current top scorer is Alexander Szymanowski who has 3 goals in 8 games for them and they will be looking at him to inspire them.
Their most recent match was on Friday evening which saw them welcomed Eusebio Sacristán’s Real Sociedad to Estadio Municipal de Butarque. The visitors took the lead on the half hour mark when a fantastic cross in from Carlos Martinez was inch perfect for Willian Jose who headed emphatically into the bottom right. They doubled their lead and secured the win on the hour mark when the keeper could only parry a shot straight into the path of Xabi Prieto who was left with the simple task of slotting into an empty net.

Sevilla v Barcelona
On Sunday evening this weekend in La Liga we see Luis Enrique take his Barcelona side on the trip to Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán to face Jorge Sampaoli’s Sevilla. This one will be a tough match with two of the strongest sides battling it out.
The home side Sevilla head into the visit of Barcelona on the back of a busy week as they play their third game in the space of the last eight days. After finishing in a respectable 7th place last season, they will have been hoping to go one better this time round and push towards the top four. They are in a great patch of form at the minute as they are unbeaten in their last 7 games in all competitions, winning 6 and drawing 1 from those 7. They currently find themselves sat in 4th place in the table, level on 21 points with Atletico Madrid who are in 3rd place. Their last league match saw them travel to Estadio Municipal El Molinón to face Sporting Gijon. It was the perfect start for Sevilla after just 4 minutes when Vietto put them ahead. However Gijon got themselves on 20 minutes and that turned out to be the last goal of the game as Sevilla had to settle for a frustrating point.
Their most recent game was on Wednesday evening when they welcomed Ivaylo Petev’s Dinamo Zagreb side to Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in the Champions League group stage. It was a fairly dominant home performance who came away with a comfortable 4-0 victory. Vietto gave them the lead after half an hour and then Sergio Escudero made it 2-0 on 66 minutes. 2 goals in the last 10 minutes of the fixture from N’Zonzi and Ben Yedder rounded off a fantastic performance. This took Sevilla top of the group above Juventus who slipped up at home to Lyon and are now 2 points behind the Spaniards.
The away side Barcelona go into the trip to Sevilla also on the back of a busy week which sees them play their third game in the space of the last eight days. They find themselves in unfamiliar territory of second place in the table, with Real Madrid above them. They currently find themselves on 22 points in the table after 10 matches, with Madrid on 24 points. Barca slipped up the other week when they were beaten 4-3 away at Celta de Vigo, but they have won their last 3 on the bounce and that’s all they can keep doing and just wait for Real Madrid to slip up. Their last La Liga match was on Saturday when they hosted Lucas Alcaraz’s Granada who are rock bottom of the table. Everyone expected them to put 5 or 6 past them but they only scraped a 1-0 win with Rafinha scoring just after half time.
Their most recent game was on Tuesday evening when they travelled to the Etihad to face Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the Champions League Group Stage. They took the lead after 20 minutes when Messi rounded off a wonderful counter attack. However City got level through Gundogan just before half time and then took the lead early in the second half through a wonderful Kevin de Bruyne free kick. The English side secured the win with their third when Gundogan got his second from close range. They still sit top of the group, but City are just 2 points behind them.
