Barcelona vs Leganes January 20 Prediction

Leganes will need reproduce some the magic that helped them overcome Barcelona at home earlier in the season. They travel to the Camp Nou to face a very different side compared to the one they played in September last year.

The home side have put their defensive troubles from earlier this season behind them, keeping five clean sheets in their last six games. They are in hunt for their seventh consecutive league win against the relegation threatened Leganes.

The Madrid team haven’t enjoyed much of a change in fortunes since beating the current league leaders at the start of the season. They were bottom of the table then and currently hover around the lower end of the La Liga table still, with a victory in their last game propelling them out of the bottom three and three points ahead of 17th placed Rayo Vallecano.

Leganes currently have the worst away record in LaLiga, having recorded just one win in their 10 away matches so far. Barcelona, meanwhile, have the best home record in the league and have won 35 of their last 42 home matches this season.

One man to keep an eye out for is Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan was in poor form the last time these sides faced, having scored just two goals in his first eight matches this season, however, Suarez has turned his form around this season and has gone to record his third best league scoring start since he joined Barcelona in 2014.

The Barca number nine has scored 124 league goals in 143 appearances for Barcelona, averaging 0.79 per 90 minutes making him a firm favourite to get on the score sheet on Sunday.
