    Best Odds: 7/5

    FC Barcelona are coming off a commanding away win at Real Mallorca and continue at the top of the Liga standings as the season progresses. They have a golden chance to extend their lead at the top of the table Tuesday, when they host a struggling Leganes side at Camp Nou. Kick-off for this match has been scheduled for Tuesday at 21:00 GMT.

    FC Barcelona

    Barcelona currently sit at the top of the standings with 61 points and are coming off a commanding 4-0 win at Mallorca. That was their fourth win in their last five games, and that result also allowed them to maintain their two-point edge over Real Madrid in the standings. Los Blaugranas return to the Camp Nou ahead of this match, a venue where have posted a near-perfect record (W13, D1, L0) while averaging over 3.0 goals scored per contest. To make things even more interesting, Barca have scored 11 times – while keeping three clean sheets – in their last five league outings at this venue. Recent matches against Leganes have been productive for them, too. Quique Setien’s men have won their last four against Los Pepineros here, scoring at least three goals in each of the last three.

    Team News

    Barcelona are close to full strength in this game. However, left-back Jordi Alba is suspended due to yellow card accumulation.

    Ousmane Dembele won’t play here due to a knee injury. The French winger will miss the remainder of the 2019-20 season.

    Leganes

    Leganes suffered a 2-1 loss to Valladolid in their previous match and their five-game form has not been very productive. They have gone W1, D2, L2 during that stretch and, to make things even more complicated, they sit in 19th place of the standings with 23 points out of 28 matches. If the season ended today, they would be damned to play in the Liga123 during the 2020-21 campaign. That might very well be their fate if they don’t turn things around soon, although it’s hard to see them getting something away from this fixture. Leganes have won just once away from home during the current campaign (W1, D5, L7) and have also scored just eight goals on the road in 2019-20, the league’s lowest tally. They have found the back of the net in each of their last two trips to Barca, though, despite losing both contests.

    Team News

    Oscar and Dimitrios Siovas have both been suspended for this match due to yellow card accumulation.

    Alexander Szymanowski remains out with a knee injury and won’t feature in this contest.

    Key Factors to Consider

    • These two sides already met once in 2020. That game finished with a commanding 5-0 win for Barcelona in the 2019-20 Copa del Rey.
    • That said, the last four H2H meetings have seen both sides scoring. All four games have also witnessed three or more total goals.
    • Barcelona own the league’s best home attack with 45 goals in 14 matches. That translates to 3.21 goals scored per game.
    • Los Blaugranas are riding a five-game winning streak at home in league play.
    • Leganes have gone scoreless in four of their last five away matches in all competitions.

    Conclusion

    Both teams scoring has been a trend between these two sides. Six of the previous seven league H2H outings have seen both teams finding the back of the net. Expect that to happen once again here.

    Both sides could find the back of the net in this even if Barca are massive favourites to get the three points.

    Verdict: Both teams to score – yes

    Best Odds: 7/5
