Soccer predictions today for Barcelona – Cultural Leonesa
The current holder of the trophy Barcelona welcomes Cultural Leonesa in a second 1/16-final from the Spanish Copa del Rey. This game on Wednesday night is going to be played at the Camp Nou in the Catalan capital. Here are our vip soccer predictions today for this clash.
Barca are having a slight advantage from the first game, which Ernesto Valverde’s team won with 1-0 away from home. Surprising for many, Los Cules had to wait to the 91th minute of the game to score a winner. This was done by the central defender Clement Lenglet, who scored after an assist by his countryman Ousmane Dembele. Many people expected a more dominant performacne by Barcelona, but we shall also remind you that Valverde put a very experimental team on the pitch, filled with many backups and young players.
Meanwhile i La Liga Barcelona are leading the standings once again, thanks to their 2-0 win over Villarreal during the weekend. In the last 10 years Barca are taking Copa del Rey very seriously, so you shall expect to see them motivated to finish the job against Cultural Leonesa.
As for Cultural Leonesa, this small club is currently playing in the Spanish Segunda B. In Group 1 of the league, Cultural Leonesa are currently 5th in the standings with 23 points. But recently the team is not in a very good form. In their last five games they are without a win – four draws and one defeat. This is not a good sign before visiting a ground like Camp Nou, we can say.
These are our vip soccer predictions today for the Copa del Rey clash between Barcelona and Cultural Leonesa at the Camp Nou. We don’t expect anything surprising to happen here. For Barca it’s going to be a routine performance, while for Cultural Leonesa it’s a great chance to play at the amazing Camp Nou.
