Nevertheless, their tally of 17 points from their opening 11 games is enough to give them plenty of hope that they can remain in the Spanish top flight for another year, and their positive opening has been based upon a rock solid defence.
Los Pepineros have conceded the third fewest goals in La Liga this term, with their total of eight goals against only bettered by Barcelona and Atletico - although this weekend they face the division's most prolific attack.
Barca have netted 30 times and conceded just four goals in their opening 11 games, of which they have won ten and drawn one, and while they are yet to overly convince on the pitch, their numbers this season are extremely impressive.
Depsite their positive start, therefore, Leganes are big outsiders for a fixture last season they lost 5-1 and dabblebet offer them at 9/1 (10.00) to claim three points on Saturday afternoon; Barca, meanwhile, can be backed at 1/3 (1.33), with the draw offered at 4/1 (5.00).

This international break has not put too much of a strain on the Blaugrana's stars, with Lionel Messi returning to Catalonia after playing the first of Argentina's two friendlies, while Luis Suarez did not join up with Uruguay and instead remained in Spain in an attempt to return to full fitness.
Despite Leganes' defensive resilience, Barca's forward line should be fresh enough to find a way a through, while at the other end the visitors will be confident of keeping a clean sheet as seven of Barcelona's ten league victories this season have come without conceding.
The Madrid outfit have scored just nine times this season with only the bottom four teams in the table netting fewer, and the price of evens (2.00) for an away win to nil looks tempting.
