Laliga: Omeruo, Awaziem Team Up Against Azeez As Leganes Host Granada
There will be nothing friendly at stake when the duo of Leganes defenders, Kenneth Omeruo and Chidozie Awaziem trade tackles with fellow compatriot, Ramon Azeez’s Granada in a La Liga game on Monday night at the Estadio Butarque.
Omeruo made a return to action last Friday when Leganes salvaged a 1-1 draw with Real Mallorca in a La Liga encounter at the Visit Mallorca Estadi after missing the 2-0 midweek defeat to Barcelona.
The centre-half started the match and saw full action but while Awaziem was also on from the start, the central defender made way for Javier Aviles in the 81st minute.
Azeez on the other hand came on to take the place of Fede Vico on 61 minutes when Granada were handed a 1-0 defeat by Samuel Chukwueze’s Villarreal also last Friday.
And now, Azeez will look forward to playing a key role as Granada aim to bounce back against Omeruo and Awaziem’s Leganes who themselves are battling against relegation.
So far in the 2019/20 season, Awaziem has made 19 starts in 21 La Liga games in the colours of the Cucumber Growers with four clean-sheets to show for his effort.
Omeruo on his own part has so far started 20 of his 2 league games in the colours of the relegation battlers with one goal and five yellow cards in his record.
Azeez has netted two times in 19 La Liga appearances for Granada this season with one of those goals coming when his club beat title holders, Barcelona 2-0 last year.
