Poor league start, but Cultural unbeaten at home

Roger BogunyÓ

Cultural Leonesa reached tonight's Cup tie thanks to two penalty shoot out wins in the three rounds they've played so far. In the league they are in the relegation zone, though they are still unbeaten at home.

The Leon team have been in Segona B – the third tier of Spanish football- since the 1995/6 season, but following their play off position last season, they are struggling this time around and the game against Barca will be a welcome break from their grim league form.

Drop zone despite Jito's goals

Unbeaten at home

Better luck in cup run
