Barcelona vs Leganes Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview of the Spanish LaLiga clash on 16 June 2020, Tuesday. Kick off 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET at the Camp Nou.
The match is sizing to be a one-sided encounter favoring Barcelona when Leganes from the bottom of the league table set out to meet the league table toppers.
Though there is a high expectation of a victory at Camp Nou, more recent league results here have been sobering, with four of their last five league home wins coming by a one-goal margin.
After the El Clasico loss at Bernabeu, the host had won the next two matches. Having lost none of their home matches in La Liga this season, Seiten will have nothing to worry about his team.
Their previous encounter was on the road against Mallorca in which they won with a 0-4 scoreline.
Leganes with 23 points in total from 28 appearances is at the bottom of the league table and is a strong contender for relegation this season in the campaign.
They will visit after a 1-2 loss at home against Valladolid in their prior clash.
The 1-2 win against Villarreal recently was their only win within the last six fixtures. Significantly, it was their first away win after a dozen winless trips on the road in the campaign.
With such a poor form on the road, expect the visitors to get an excellent taste of the home team’s strikers in the clash at Camp Nou.
Barcelona vs Leganes Head-to-head (h2h)
- The host has recorded 7 of the overall 8 wins.
- None of their 8 fixtures since 2016 have ended in a draw.
- Their previous encounter gave a 5-0 home win for Barca.
- Both teams have scored in 6 of the 8 meetings.
Barcelona vs Leganes Prediction
Barcelona has lost only once against the visitors in 2018 at the latter’s home. Their most recent encounter in Copa del Rey this year saw Seiten’s boys winning with a 5-0 scoreline.
Since 2017, Barca has won all of their meetings at home against Leganes. That said, the visitors have lost with at least a two-goal margin in their recent three visits.
With the superior form of the table toppers, the tip for Barcelona to win with a -1 handicap at 1.44 odds will be a suitable option for the punters.
Lionel Messi had scored a brace in their opening match on the road post lockdown. So, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair when he plays at Camp Nou.
The tip for over 2.5 goals at 1.44 odds will thus be the best bet in the clash.
