Super Eagles’ defender, Kenneth Omeruo is expected to make his 10th league start of the season for Leganes when they travel to the RCDE Stadium to tackle Espanyol on matchday 18 of the Spanish LaLiga, AOIFootball.com reports.
Having bagged a man of the match performance in his side’s last outing, Omeruo will most definitely keep his place in the heart of the five-man defence alongside Dimitrios Silva and Unai Busting, whilst the duo of Jonathan Silva and Allan Nyon continue their roles from the full-back position.
Having kept five league clean sheets in his last 10 league games with Leganes, the Nigerian will be hoping the club extends their impressive nine-match unbeaten streak which has seen them move four points off the relegation zone.
In contrast, Espanyol is going into Friday night’s clash with an abysmal run of form, having lost all six of its last league fixtures since its 1-0 triumph over Athletic Bilbao in November.
A win for Leganes will see them jump to 12th as they continue their quest for a top half finish.
