Barcelona vs Leganes Prediction & Betting tips
The first compulsory task after the re-start was fulfilled, the second follows immediately on foot: After the title aspirant FC Barcelona easily won his opening game after the weekend break at the relegation candidate RCD Mallorca 4-0, the next game follows a few days later a team from the table cellar.
On Tuesday (21:00 p.m.) the penultimate CD Leganes will be at Camp Nou – nothing less than three points are of course the goal and goal of FC Barcelona, anything else would be a big surprise, as with Barcelona vs Leganes a look at the betting odds shows.
Because the best betting providers naturally lead Barça as a big favorite in the match, which means that Barcelona versus Leganes also have high odds on the away team.
Barça will be back in the fight for the title on Tuesday, increasing pressure on rival Real Madrid. Already on the last match day, the Madrilenians had to follow suit and know that Barça had done his duty.
For Leganes, the game date is the chance to catch up on points with Celta Vigo, the team that holds the coveted 17th place, because Vigo only intervenes in Valladolid on Wednesday. So the Pepineros could increase the pressure on the Galician – and of course on the other competitors for the relegation.
FC Barcelona got off to a good start after a good three-month break, and it was even surprisingly easy: The RCD Mallorca had a tailor-made start on Matchday 28, and the Catalans won 4-0 on the Balearic holiday island.
The early goal after only two minutes by Arturo Vidal took the guests onto the winning road, in the end there was a comfortable victory.
“An early goal gives you self-confidence, Mallorca is an uncomfortable opponent, so everything is easier if you take the lead early,” said full-back Jordi Alba after the game, who even scored a goal 3-0 in the meantime: “It was that first game after three months and we started well, we controlled the game, ”said the Spanish international, satisfied.
But Alba will miss FC Barcelona in the game on Tuesday, he has to serve a yellow card against Leganes. The 31-year-old saw his fifth yellow card in Mallorca.
Barça coach Quique Setién was also satisfied after the three points in Mallorca: “There were a lot of uncertainties before the game, nobody knew what would happen. Winning this game was very important. We go out here with a good feeling. ”
Winter newcomer Martin Braithwaite also felt good. The attacker, who was subject to a special regulation in February, scored his first goal for Barcelona against Mallorca. As a result, the Dane was more than happy: “It’s great to have scored my first goal, but it was much more important that we started that way. We are happy and we have to keep going. ”
Now the striker will meet his old club for the first time since his move on Tuesday. Regarding the reunion with Leganes and whether the meeting was special, Braithwaite said: “Of course, it is something special, I played there and I know a lot of people there. But in the end it’s a soccer game, we play to be champions – so when you step on the grass, there are no friends anymore. ”
So will Braithwaite hit the mark against the ex-club? That would be a special story. Anyone who thinks that the Dane will contribute a goal to Barça’s victory can play at Barcelona vs. Leganes would like to give his tip on this event to the betting provider Bwin, which has been tested by the betting base.
While Barcelona started the remaining season of La Ligas as best as possible, the opposite is true for Leganes: the relegation candidate suffered a bitter defeat at home against cellar rival Real Valladolid, but they had a 1-2 at home in Butarque.
A missed opportunity for the team from the Madrid suburb: the relegation candidates Mallorca (0: 4 against Barça), Celta Vigo (0: 1 against Villarreal) and SD Eibar (1: 3 against Real Madrid). The latter are both ahead of Leganes in the table and have also lost.
Leganes is stuck in 19th place due to the home defeat, so has a great chance in the fight against relegation to catch up with Celta on points.
The Pepineros now have this chance at FC Barcelona – it will be an even more difficult undertaking to take countable things with them at Camp Nou. Not only because Barcelona is the best home team in the league (13/1/0), but also because Leganes is the second weakest away team: Leganes achieved only eight points and eight goals abroad (1/5/7).
“We missed a golden opportunity,” said Leganes coach Javier Aguirre after the loss to Valladolid, “that was a six-point game. It’s a very painful defeat. ”
It can also be painful at Camp Nou if Lionel Messi and Co. should appear similarly inspired to Mallorca. It was already painful in the last duel between the two teams when Barça triumphed 5-0 in the cup in January.
