Leganes vs Barcelona Match Preview

leaguelane.com, 19 November 2019, 17:04

Barcelona will try their best to put to rest the rumors about problems in the dressing room, and the tussles with their gaffer, with a huge win against the dead-last, placed Leganes. Moreover, with all of their forwards performing well during the international break, Cules would hope for a repeat of the heroics in the clubs colors too.

Leganes vs Barcelona Head-to-head (h2h)

The last time these two met, Barca won 3-1.

Five of the former six clashes saw Barca registering the victory.

Leganes are yet to keep a clean sheet against this opponent this decade.

Barca have scored thrice or more in all of their encounters at this stadium, bar once.

However, the last time these two locked horns here, Lega had won 2-1.

Leganes vs Barcelona Prediction

Leganes failed to put to use their home advantage, as they hosted Eibar the week before. The home team did open their account in the 6th minute itself, but the visiting contingent was calm enough to face the pressure, and equalize ten minutes later. As the game progressed, the team once again found the back of the net, that too in the 84th minute, to post the three points on the board.

Lionel Messi was at his menacing best the last match-day for Barca, as he recorded a hattrick from set pieces alone. A 23rd-minute penalty was followed by two sensational free-kicks, as the Spanish champions romped to a huge victory.

However, the win acted as a double-edged sword, with attention being taken away from the under-fire Ernesto Valverde.

This game week, understand that the table-toppers are taking on the squad that is placed dead-last in the table. Moreover, with Real Madrid slowly finding form back, Barca can no longer slop away and expect to defend their title.

It helps that they have performed phenomenally well against this opponent in the past, and with Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez, and Messi all having great outings with their international team-mates these last few days, goals are surely expected in plenty from the visitors.

To pile on, all through the campaign, Lega have recorded a sole win and that too against the newly-promoted Mallorca. They have also scored the least number of goals and lost the most number of the game as well.

By all means, we are in line for a huge Barcelona victory.
