Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
As expected, Barcelona restarted the season with a 4-0 win over Mallorca, with Leo Messi scoring his 20th goal of the season. The Catalan giants retained top position in the standings, but their bitter rivals Real Madrid are still breathing down their neck. Luis Suarez returned to contention against Mallorca, and he is widely expected to start against Leganes, while centre-back Lenglet has served his ban.
Even though Ousmane Dembele remains in the recovery room, home win should be considered as Leganes are not enjoying a season to remember. The capital club suffered a 2-1 loss to Real Valladolid in their first game after the coronavirus football break, with the team remaining in the relegation zone. When the two teams met in Copa del Rey earlier in 2020 Barcelona crushed Leganes 5-0, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Experienced winger Alexander Szymanowski misses the Barca game with injury.
