Barcelona vs Leganes Preview, Tips and Odds

League leaders Barcelona will take on one of the surprise packages this year in the face of Leganes. Barca easily won their cup meeting in midweek, but are not in danger of getting disqualified, because of illegal use of a player. “Blaugranas” are 5 points clear at the top ahead of 2nd placed Atletico Madrid and will look to extend that lead. Leganes are 13th with 22 points, but just 3 points separate them from the 18th spot – the first in the drop zone. They are probably the only side to have beaten Barcelona and Real Madrid this season.
