Leganes vs Barcelona Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Leganes’ amazing form so far this season has once again taken a major hit with the team losing 3-0 against Valencia before the international break. This was always going to be a tough match and the Leganes suffered this heavy defeat courtesy of goals from Dani Parejo, Rodrigo, and Santi Mina. Barcelona kept their lead at the top of the table intact with a 2-1 victory over Sevilla. Paco Alcacer came up with the first goal after 23 minutes, but Sevilla levelled the scores in the 59th minute through Guido Pizarro. Alcacer came up with the winner just six minutes later to eliminate any chance of a shock result.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Barcelona have been able to complete a double over Leganes in the 2016-17 season. They managed a 7-2 aggregate victory and there is a greater possibility of such a high score coming up once again. Leganes have averaged less than a goal per game this season, and they have scored only three goals in five home matches. Barcelona have kept three clean sheets in the five away matches. I would go with the Barcelona 2-0 win. Lionel Messi has scored four goals in his two appearances against Leganes. The Argentine forward has also been able to come up with the opening goal in these matches. There are concerns about Messi's scoring form, as the superstar has not scored in his last two appearances. Yet, I would go with Messi to score 1st in this game.

Barcelona 2-0 win – 5/1

Lionel Messi to score 1st – 7/4

Leganes saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Leganes saw over 1.5 goals in 4 out of their last 4 games played against Barcelona

Barcelona scored over 2.5 goals in 5 out of their last 10 games played

Barcelona are undefeated in all of their last 4 games against Leganes

Leganes Preview

Leganes have been on an excellent run of form until now, but back-to-back defeats against Sevilla and Valencia may have taken the confidence out of the team. These games were seen as the toughest challenge for the club so far this season, as they were playing up against inform outfits on the road. After having been involved in relegation battle for much of the 2016-17 season, it has been a refreshing change from Leganes. Yet, the club will be concerned about dropping out of the top 10 places with a difficult fixture list ahead of them. No player at Leganes has been able to score more than two goals so far.

Leganes Team News

Serantes (shoulder) is the only injury worry for Leganes coming into the game.

Barcelona Preview

Barcelona have been able to keep the positive results coming despite a string of injury problems affecting an already thin squad. The club has dropped only two points so far this season. Such a string of positive results have helped them open up an eight-point advantage over rivals Real Madrid, although the possibility of a title challenge from Valencia cannot be ruled out. Barcelona are the joint best offensive team with 30 goals in 11 matches, while they are the best defensive team by a significant distance after conceding only four league goals so far. Unsurprisingly, Lionel Messi still heads the scoring charts at Barcelona with 12 league goals.

Barcelona Team News

Rafinha (Meniscus), Andre Gomes (thigh), Javier Mascherano (thigh), Ousmane Dembele (hamstring), and Sergi Roberto (hamstring) are the players unavailable for Ernesto Valverde.
