CD Leganes defender Kenneth Omeruo has told SCORENigeria that he expects a tough face-off against fellow Nigeria star Sadiq Umar when their Spanish clubs do battle tomorrow.
Poor weather forced this La Liga 2 clash to be re-arranged for Wednesday.
A win for Sadiq Umar’s UD Almeria in Madrid will see them shoot to the top of the table, while victory for the home team will consolidate their fourth place.
“The game will be a tough one,” Omeruo admitted.
“We have to recover properly for this game.
“Almeria are enjoying a good run right now, but so are we – we have won our last three games under a new coach.
“We are home and we have to take this opportunity.
“With the new coach, we have somehow found a better way to approach games and it is working for us.
“We are going for a win.”
The top two teams in Segunda Division will automatically win promotion to La Liga, while the teams who placed third to sixth will feature in a playoff.
