Real Madrid have been paired with Leganés in the Copa del Rey quarter-final draw, which took place at the Ciudad del Fútbol in Las Rozas, Madrid. The first leg will be contested at Butarque next Thursday, 18 January (9:30pm CET), whilst the return leg, which will be played at the Santiago Bernabéu, will take place on Wednesday the 24th (9:30pm CET).

Butragueño: "Leganés are on a thrilling run" 
“Leganés are having an extraordinary season, both in LaLiga and the Copa del Rey. They're a team on a thrilling run at the moment and coming up against Real Madrid requires no extra motivation. Their recent results will mean morale is sky-high, so they're set to be very dangerous opposition. We'll need to take a good result over there and then see it through back at the Bernabéu”.
“They're very strong at the back and will look to hit us on the break. They're a solid team who squeeze the very best out of what they're got, and will be highly motivated after their results so far this campaign, which will have made them even stronger. They concede few goals, they're well-armed in defence and up top they can find ways to hurt you".

Butragueño: "Leganés are a solid side who get the very best out of their players".

We're up against opposition, who in theory have nothing to lose but their fans are enjoying their performances this season and the atmosphere at their ground will be something to bear in mind".

Copa del Rey
"It's a beautiful competition. The knock-out rounds always carry that extra thrill because you know either you're through, or you're out; that pushes to the limit at times. The Copa del Rey final is one of the most beautiful games of the year. You're at a neutral ground and it's a match you'll remember for the rest of your life. It's an attractive competition, and it can be dangerous, because one mistake can see you dumped out".
