Leganes – FC Barcelona – LaLiga – Prediction and Preview: 18th November 2017
Leganes had a difficult program recently. He lost away with Sevilla and Valencia. This match with Barcelona does not give him much hope to end the negative series. However, the hosts will do their best to extend their own home games, where they have not scored in the last three games played in La Liga, with Girona, Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao.
Barcelona has not been away since April. Ernesto Valverde has a well-balanced team but will not have to play at full capacity to overtake a team that will focus on the defensive. The Catalans will also be motivated by the fact that Atletico and Real Madrid meet on Saturday night and the distance from at least one of the two will increase if successful at Leganes.
Barcelona won both matches with Leganes last season. The Catalans were 2-1 on Camp Nou and 5-1 on the Estadio Municipal de Butarque.
