Barcelona vs CD Leganes
LEG vs BAR MATCH PREVIEW:
Just a week ago, Barcelona's unbeaten La Liga run looked to end at Ramón Sanchez Pizjuan against Sevilla. The Catalan giants were trailing by two goals when Ernesto Valverde introduced Lionel Messi in the 56th minute. The game changed almost instantly as the struggling visitors started to take control of the match. Their indomitable approach paid dividends as Luis Suarez' and the magical Messi scored two late goals and ensured that Barca's envious unbeaten streak took one step closer to hit the 38 games mark.
Now they host CD Leganes and, no disrespect to the visitors, by looking at the profile of the visitors, it looks a certainty that their unbeaten run would increase to 31 games.
There's more to this imperious statistics. barcelona haven't lost a league game since April 2017 when they lost against Malaga. So if they win this match they would be taking their unbeaten run to 38 games, thus equalling the record set by real Sociedad between 1979 and 1980.
At the current stage, Barca are 9 points clear of 2nd placed Atletico Madrid, and mathematically need to win their remaining five games to become the La Liga Champion.
Leganes, on the other hand, are 13th in the table, 13 points clear of the relegation zone. So it's fair to say that their La Liga future is almost safe. However, the minnows from Madrid have hit a purple patch in the last couple of months.
They have won just two times in their last 12 games and are on a four-game losing streak on the road heading into this match.
