Barcelona will be aiming to maintain their unbeaten start to this La Liga season when they make the trip to the Estadio Municipal de Butarque to take on Leganes on Wednesday night. Leganes were beaten 1-0 on the road at Eibar at the weekend, in a game in which they had just two shots on target. On the flip side, Barcelona were held to a 2-2 home draw by Girona on Sunday, with their goals being scored by Leo Messi and Gerard Pique. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Leganes have been terrible in this early part of the new La Liga campaign as they are yet to win after five league outings. Actually, they have lost four of these, including their 1-0 away defeat at Eibar last time out in La Liga. At home, Leganes were on a five-game unbeaten streak across all competitions prior to their 0-1 loss against Villarreal in their most recent home league match.
On the other hand, Barcelona were on a seven-game winning streak across all competitions prior to their 2-2 home draw against Girona at the weekend. Despite this disappointing result, the Blaugrana still sit at the top of the La Liga table tied on 13 points with Real Madrid. Away from home, Barca have won their both league trips so far this season.
Barcelona hold an impeccable head-to-head record against Leganes and they should be able to grab another win here. Our betting tips and predictions would back the Asian Handicap -1.5 on Barcelona at odds 1.75.
