This Wednesday at the Municipal Stadium of Butarque is played the first leg of the first semifinal of the Copa del Rey of Spain, when a motivated Leganés receives a visit from a recovered Sevilla.
Those led by Asier Garitano comes to this commitment with morality to the top, so first a week ago they left on the road of this competition to Real Madrid winning it in the same Santiago Bernabéu 1-2 in a tie that started losing at home 0-1 and the last weekend won at home 3-2 to Espanyol by the League in a result that although it places it in the 11th place is only five points to qualify for UEFA competition.
Although for many Leganés is the most accessible team of the four in this instance, we must be careful with them since it has left out teams with a lot of history like Valladolid, Villarreal and the aforementioned series against Real Madrid.
The arrival of Italian coach Vincenzzo Montella has allowed Sevilla to recover not only the level of recent years but also the confidence of the players, so they come to this instance after leaving Atlético de Madrid on the road in a series where they won both games, but unfortunately these good results can not endorse them in the league and the last weekend did not pass the tie at home to a goal against Getafe in a game where although the visit got the tie with a controversial play at the last minute, the Andalusian cast peco of arrogance in the definition and this cost them dearly.
For Sevilla this will be his thirteenth semifinal in all competitions in the last 15 years, and Montella is determined to reach the final.
