The Match Is Over. Score: 2-0
The team with the best La Liga home record comes up against one of the worst away sides as league leaders, Barcelona welcome relegation threatened Leganes to the Camp Nou in the second round of fixtures following the restart of the league season.
Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 29
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona)
Barcelona got off to a flying start following the resumption of La Liga after an abrupt pause to the league season, and they will now be looking to consolidate their hold on the top of the standings.

The Catalans, led by boss, Quique Setien and talismanic forward, Lionel Messi will be looking to build on a strong start and secure the league trophy for three years in a row, thereby cementing their status as Spain’s best side.

In a tale of contrasting fortunes, Leganes are facing an increasingly difficult task to avoid the drop as the league campaign slowly draws to an end. Los Pepineros are currently placed nineteenth on the standings, but on the bright side, they are only three points from safety.

However, any attempts to kickstart their fight against the drop might have to wait till the next game week as they come up against a Barcelona side that hasn’t lost a La Liga home game for over a year!

Barcelona vs Leganes Team News

Barca picked up where they left things off as they recorded an emphatic 4-0 victory away at struggling Mallorca in their last league outing. Usual suspect Messi was, once again, the star of the night as he set up two goals and rounded up the scoring in a rampant display.

That win ensured Barca would remain at least, two points ahead of fierce rivals, Real Madrid as the race for La Liga title looks set to go straight down to the wire. The Catalans currently occupy the first position on the standings, having accumulated 61 points from their 28 league encounters this term.

The league leaders also boast the best home record in La Liga, and by extension, in Europe with their last home league defeat coming in November 28. Barca have won 24 of 26 games in this run, and have come out victorious in all, but one of their clashes in front of the Camp Nou faithful. They have also done this in style, scoring 45 goals in 14 home encounters – an average of 3 goals per home game!

Leganes’ abysmal run of form continued as they succumbed to a disappointing 2-1 at home to Real Valladolid upon their return to league action.

Rodriguez Arnaiz’s 84th minute penalty goal proved to be nothing more than a consolation as the Pepineros were condemned to their third defeat in six league matches. Javier Aguirre’s side have one of the worst away records in the league as they have only managed to collect 8 points from 13 matches played on the road.

Injured or Suspended Players

Barcelona: Ousmane Dembele, Arda Turan, Arturo Vidal, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.
