The BAR vs LEG match preview –
La Liga leaders Barcelona will be playing their sixth game of the season against Leganes, as they try and maintain their position at the top of the table.
Barcelona started off the campaign brightly. Except for the last game where they drew at home to a mid-table team in Girona, they were going strong and looked unstoppable. But, the coach Ernesto Valverde would not be worried about how things have panned out as Barcelona is still dominating the teams whenever they play. This upcoming game, however, has to be won by The Catalan side or else Real Madrid will be taking over the classification on being the 1st placed team in the league.
Meanwhile, Leganes have been going through a torrid time. They are yet to win a game in their last five and are struggling with form. Coach Mauricio Pellegrino still hasn’t been able to pin down a preferred formation or picked out his best starting XI. To make things worse, they will be taking on one of the most formidable sides in world football in Barcelona, and if they manage to get a point from this result, it will be a stepping stone for them to recover.

Gambling India Info Match Prediction Barcelona vs Leganes –
Barcelona needs to win this game to maintain their lead in the Spanish La Liga, and we back them to win this game.
Barcelona – Clement Lenglet is an automatic exclusion after his sending off in the last match. But Manager Ernesto Valverde has called up Malcolm for this trip while leaving the likes of Rafinha, Denis Suarez, Sergi Samper, and Carles Alena back in Barcelona.
Leganes – For the home side, this may not be the match to open their winning account for this season. But they are always a threat at their home and we are expecting the former Southampton Manager Mauricio Pellegrino to name an attacking side for this particular match. However, Alexander Szymanowski is definitely out whileRecio, and Ezequiel Munoz remains doubtful ahead of this match.
