Barcelona were surprisingly held in Girona’s draw in last weekend’s La Liga match, but the Catalan giants had to forget about the disappointment and pay it when they travel to Leganes headquarters in the 6th Jornada this weekend. The match is planned to take place on the upcoming Thursday morning, September 27 2018.
Leganes will indeed play as hosts in the match, but that fact does not necessarily make them more favored to win. Moreover, judging by the host’s record in the first five matches of the Spanish La Liga this season, where they were only able to reach one point, with a record of four defeats and one time held to a draw.
Barcelona on paper are far better than Leganes, despite last weekend’s draw against Girona, the Catalan giants are in fact unbeaten in their first six games of the season in all competitions. In fact, yesterday’s draw against Girona could also be said of a red card swallowed by defender Clement Lenglet in the first round.
