Top versus bottom in La Liga...
<div><h2>Leganes vs Barcelona</h2><h2><span style="color:rgb(0, 0, 0);font-size:18px">Saturday, November 23, at Butarque</span></h2><p>Betting on Barcelona has been a risky venture of late. Ernesto Valverde’s men busted many a coupon by losing to Levante and then drawing with Slavia Prague, but they bounced back with a 4-1 win over Celta Vigo. That left them top of the table and they will be keen to maintain that standing when they take on bottom club Leganes at Burarque. They desperately need to discover consistency if they are to win La Liga, and Leganes is the perfect place to start. The hosts have lost nine out of 13 games so far this season, including five of seven at home, and Barcelona really should leave with all three points on Saturday.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Leganes battled to a surprise 1-1 draw away at high-flying Real Sociedad before the international break, and that should give them a degree of confidence. The downside was a late red card for Kevin Rodriguez, so he will be suspended for this game. Fans will have been pleased to see Youssef En-Nesyri score his first goal of the season after coming on for Danish forward Martin Braithwaite, but overall Leganes need more from their strikers, as they have only managed seven goals in 13 games thus far this season.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" /></a></p><p>Barcelona forwards Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi faced one another during the intenational break. Suarez's Uruguay looked set for a win in the friendly until Messi banged in a late equaliser. He has been in superb form since returning from an injury and he could rip the Leganes defence apart if he is on song in this match. Barcelona have no injury problems of note and they just need to get their mentality right in order to sweep aside the minnows of La Liga on a regular basis.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Real Madrid recently beat Leganes 5-0 and Barcelona should look at this fixture and feel as though they can achieve a similar result. They lost 2-1 at Butarque at the start of last season, but later beat Leganes 3-1 at Camp Nou. They have won five of their six games against Leganes, and they really should extend that record on Saturday.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1">Barcelona -1.25 Asian handicap at 1.99 (99/100) with Bet365</a></strong></p></div>
