Barcelona vs. Leganes Predictions and Preview

Barcelona have started to recover form after winning just three La Liga games in nine attempts by winning each of their last six.

Their 2-1 win at Getafe was their only goal conceded in six as they have reinforced their chances of winning a fourth La Liga title in five seasons.

However, Leganes are a dangerous opponent and one who are in a strange run of form – with just one defeat and five draws in their last nine in La Liga.

Unsurprisingly, the hosts are clear favourites for this encounter at odds of 1/10 with a Leganes victory priced at 25/1 and the draw available at 17/2.

These fixtures tend to produce lots of goals with 19 going in across the only previous five meetings, so over 4.5 goals at 2/1 appears to be a solid bet with over 3.5 at 10/11.

A ‘double chance’ on Leganes to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 11/2 while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 1/150.

If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 1/2.
