Nine clean sheets for Omeruo as Leganes pip Levante

Nine clean sheets for Omeruo as Leganes pip Levante

Kenneth Omeruo made his 19th league appearance for CD Leganes on Monday night in a 1-0 home win for Los Pepineros over Levante UD.

 


It was a 9th clean sheet for the Center back in 21 games; in all competitions, as he continues to show great improvement on loan from Chelsea.

 

Although a routine performance by Manuel Pellegrini’s side, Omeruo, however, didn’t have to make a single tackle or win an aerial ball in a back three defense line.

 

Faithful at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque were treated to a defensive masterclass limiting their more flamboyant opponents to desperate crosses that never really troubled the goalkeeper or his first line of defense.

 

Equally, the win comes as a boost for Lega, who now move to 11th in the table just four points behind sixth-placed Sevilla; who hold the second automatic Europa League spot.

 

It also means they avoid back to back defeats to their visitors in La Liga this season, having lost the first leg of the fixture 2-0 at the Ciutat de Valencia Stadium.
