Lionel Messi Barcelona 2018-19
The La Liga champions have an excellent record against the side from the south of Madrid and we are backing them to record another win on Wednesday

After a difficult start to the season for Leganes things could get even tougher on Wednesday night when they host Barcelona.

Los Pepineros are rooted to the bottom of the table with just one point from a possible 15, and their latest defeat came by a 1-0 scoreline at Eibar on Saturday.

Barca dropped their first points of the campaign in a 2-2 home draw with Girona but will be aiming to bounce back in their midweek trip to the Estadio Municipal de Butarque. 

Latest odds

Barcelona have won all four of their top flight meetings against Leganes and bet365 offer them at 2/9 (1.22) to pick up another three points.

The hosts meanwhile can be backed at 10/1 (11.00) with the draw offered at 11/2 (6.50).

Team news

Centre-back Clement Lenglet is suspended for the Catalans after his red card against Girona on Sunday. Ivan Rakitic and Philippe Coutinho both started the weekend game on the bench but could come back into the starting line-up. 

Preview

Barca have enjoyed their previous two La Liga trips to Butarque, winning 3-0 last season and 5-1 the previous campaign.

Lega have conceded goals in every game they have played so far this term and while last season they often struggled in the final third, they were pretty well organised defensively.

Ernesto Valverde's men therefore should be able to capitalise on this defensive frailty, with Barca the top scorers in La Liga so far by some distance. 

Tips and predictions

Barca to win to nil is offered at 21/20 (2.05) and looks a solid option for this game, given Leganes' poor start to the season.

This bet has paid out three times already in the Blaugrana's competitive games this season as well as on their previous trip to Butarque, and offers a good way to back the champions at an odds-against price.
