Leganes vs Barcelona Match Preview
Bottom hosts top in La Liga as Barcelona aim to open up a three-point gap at the summit before their two big rivals from Madrid play later on Saturday.
The Spanish top-flight table is currently much more closely packed than it usually is upon the resumption from the November international break with the leading five clubs covered by only two points – although Barcelona and Real Madrid have a game in hand due to the postponement of El Clasico following political unrest in Catalonia.
The reason why Barcelona are not faring better is their away form. They have lost three times already on their travels this term, continuing a malaise that set in last season (see stats above).
But this should be a very winnable fixture for Lionel Messi and Co against Leganes, who have consolidated nicely with a fourth Primera Division campaign since being promoted in 2016 – although this is one in which they look likely to be facing a relegation battle.
That is unless the club from the outskirts of Madrid can be galvanised by former Atletico Madrid and Mexico manager Javier Aguirre, who replaced former Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino earlier this month and collected a highly creditable point from his first game in charge away to in-form Real Sociedad.
Leganes may have improved for the new leadership and they beat Barcelona at home last season, but it would be a surprise if the champions slipped up here and they are backed to grind out what has been a relatively infrequent away victory over the last nine months.
