Match Preview

Leganés will fondly remember their home victory over Barcelona last season (2-1) – their only win as a home outsider (D5, L2) of that La Liga (LL) season – but a poor home record offers little inspiration for another in 2019/20.
Perhaps gradual improvement is imminent as Leganés have opened the scoring in their last two home games (W1, L1), after failing to do so in the preceding five. Yet a second-half home goal difference of -4 is the second-worst in the league after week 13 and needs to be improved upon.
The league’s most prolific scorers have hit the back of the net in their last three away trips, but a slip up at Levante has seen Barcelona endure their second-worst 12-week start to a LL campaign this decade. Results are notably dependent on their starts: Barcelona maintain a near-perfect record when opening the scoring (W7, L1) but have dropped points on three of four occasions when failing to do so (W1, D1, L2).
While three of their four goals against Celta Vigo came from set pieces, Barcelona have regained their knack for galactic scoring as six of their eight victories this LL season have been by a margin of at least three goals.
Players to watch: Jonathan Silva (LEG) continues to accrue yellow cards, having been booked in three of his last five starts, as well as three of his last five at home. Meanwhile, the odds must be very short that Barcelona’s Lionel Messi will add to his eight goals in six appearances versus Leganés!
Stat attack: Leganes’ 44 cards (42 yellow and two red) was the second-most of any 2019/20 LL club after week 13.
Both teams have scored in five of the six H2H meetings, with all six producing over 2.5 total goals (and three of six over 3.5 goals).
Thirteen of Barcelona’s goal difference of +18 has come from the 15 minute periods either side of half-time.
