Martin Braithwaite will play against Leganes for the first time since leaving them at the Camp Nou on Tuesday evening.

Barcelona bought the Danish forward from Leganes in February as an emergency replacement for the injured Ousmane Dembele.

“They annoyed us,” Leganes boss Javier Aguirre said about Barcelona then.

“It is what it is, it’s nothing.

“It’s an exceptional situation that we weren’t expecting,” said Leganes president Victoria Pavon.

“The damage is done. Whether we were prepared for it or not, it’s difficult to repair it.”

“We want to raise our voice,” said Martin Ortega, Leganes director general.

“We consider ourselves in a hugely unfair situation, of serious harm.

“We don’t understand any of the current regulations.”

Braithwaite hasn’t shown any sign of regret about his move.

“I know them and how they play,” he said about his former club on Monday.

“I’m really looking forward to playing against them.

“I prefer playing to win a trophy than to avoid relegation.”

Braithwaite heads into the game on a euphoric high after his first goal for Barcelona.
