Barcelona vs Leganes Match Preview
Camp Nou matches in La Liga this season have generally been goalfests and another could be on the cards when Barcelona host Leganes.
The Spanish champions’ 10 home league matches so far have contained 45 goals, scoring 33 themselves but also conceding two or more against the likes of Huesca (although they won 8-2), Girona, Sevilla and Real Betis.
In fairness, Ernesto Valverde’s side have tightened up since the start of December and we do not think they will drop points here, as they did when beaten 2-1 away to Leganes in September when Nabil El Zhar and Oscar Rodriguez turned the match on its head.
The title race looks like it is starting to become a two-horse contest with Atletico Madrid the only real threat to Barcelona, and they could have moved to within two points depending on the result of their match away to Huesca on Saturday.
One complication that manager Valverde could have done without here was having to field a stronger side than he had hoped, in order to try and turn around the Copa del Rey tie against Levante on Thursday (result not known at the time of writing).
Nevertheless, even if Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez had to be parachuted into action, it should not adversely affect Barcelona’s prospects here and they are expected to achieve a routine victory.
