Leganes vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview
Barcelona have already been in a mini-crisis this season – they had picked up a miserly one point from their opening three away matches and also lost in their last away game, at Legane.s
They have notched up comprehensive league wins over Real Betis, Valencia, Sevilla, Getafe, Eibar, Real Valladolid and last time out, beating Celta Vigo 4-1.
Leganes secured a credible 1-1 draw at Real Sociedad last time out but have won just once in 13 league games this campaign, when they edged out Real Mallorca 1-0 at home.
Unsurprisingly due to their stature, the visitors are heavy favourites for this encounter at odds of 47/100 with a Leganes victory priced at 6/1 and the draw available at 7/2.
Barcelona fixtures have averaged four goals per game in La Liga this campaign so over 3.5 goals is priced at 13/8 with over 4.5 at a tempting 4/1.
A ‘double chance’ on Leganes to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 17/10 while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 1/12.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 6/5.
One to watch for Leganes: Martin Braithwaite is the hosts top scorer on three La Liga goals this season, he has scored in each of his last three internationals for Denmark and is at 18/5 to score anytime in this game.
One to watch for Barcelona: Arturo Vidal has already notched up three goals in La Liga this season – against Real Betis, Sevilla and Real Valladolid – and is at a tempting 7/2 to find the net here.
Long shot: Barcelona have conceded just once in their last two games while Leganes have scored just seven goals in 13 league games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 14/1.
