LaLiga: I’m Ready For Lionel Messi – Kenneth Omeruo

Kenneth Omeruo is confident Leganes of Spain can get a good result when they play the almighty Barcelona on Sunday, believing their Copa del Rey win over Real Madrid on Wednesday will inspire them.

Super Eagles defender has become an important figure at the club since breaking into the starting XI last year.

Leganes are currently three points off the drop and the 25-year-old will most definitely hope for a positive result at the Camp Nou.

Having won the first meeting 2-1 last year, Leganes will be looking for their first league double over Barcelona who have been in an impeccable form of late, suffering defeat in only one of their last 10 games.

The Leganes of Spain defender will most definitely be in line to start his 12 league game of the season, but Omeruo will definitely have his world cup memories against Messi at hand as he hopes to stop the Argentine from firing Barcelona to victory.
