Barcelona vs Leganes
Spanish La Liga
Date: 7th April 2018, Saturday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona).
Barcelona switch their focus to securing the La Liga title after a stunning win against Roma in the Champions League quarterfinal first leg on the midweek. The 2-2 draw at Sevilla last weekend cut short their lead over Atletico Madrid to 9 points, still they might see this through with 5 of the remaining 8 league games set at the Camp Nou.
The performances at Camp Nou is the main contributor of Barcelona’s title race in all competitions this season. They boast 91% win ration in all tournaments here. In La Liga, it is 12 wins and 2 draws from 14 games with an incredible goal aggregate of 40 scored to 6 conceded.
Leganes are 14th in the table and well away from danger of dropping down to the second division as the bottom three teams are 15 points behind them. Also, there is little to write about their current run of form, especially while going away to top sides in the league. In a nutshell, they have only 3 draws to show in their last 11 away games. Their poor scoring record in away games has to be mentioned as well as they so far managed a humble 10 goals from 15 outings, also in 8 of their last 10.
Barcelona vs Leganes: Head-to-head
Barcelona won in all of the three La Liga meetings against Leganes, since the latter won their promotion to the top division last season.
Barcelona vs Leganes: Prediction
This is expected to be a cakewalk for the team in blue and red. Ernesto Valverde may opt to start without the likes of Messi and Suarez with the Champions League second leg at Roma a few days away. But, this must not have any effect on the outcome of Saturday’s fixture.
