Barcelona vs Leganes: Catalan giants to enjoy smooth success

Kick Off: 1945, 07/04/2018

Barcelona have been handed a nice LaLiga fixture in between their Champions League tussles with Roma and should have little trouble brushing aside Leganes at Camp Nou.

The Catalan giants remain unbeaten in this competition and have conceded just six goals in 14 home games, with 12 wins recorded.

Only two teams have scored fewer times than their next opponents in Spain’s top flight, so a clean-sheet victory for Barca looks the way to go.

Ernesto Valverde may have one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy, though, so that could keep the scoreline down and 8/5 for a 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 triumph appeals for our Barcelona vs Leganes betting predictions.

A Look At Barcelona’s Betting Odds

Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi has been nursing a hamstring injury since the international break, so it may pay to look elsewhere in the goalscorer markets.

The Argentina ace only came on for the last half an hour of a 2-2 draw at Sevilla because the Catalan giants were struggling and could be saved for European duty.

Paco Alcacer opened the scoring when standing in for the suspended Luis Suarez against Athletic Bilbao recently, so we’re hoping he gets another chance to impress.

The 24-year-old also netted both goals in a November 2-1 win over Sevilla and broke the deadlock in a Champions League triumph against Sporting Lisbon.

Looking at the Barcelona vs Leganes odds, we reckon 7/2 for Alcacer to strike first is worth a punt.

A Look At Leganes’ Betting Odds

Leganes eased any lingering relegation fears when beating Malaga and Sevilla at home last month but received a reality check when losing 1-0 to Valencia at Butarque a week ago.

Asier Garitano’s side have failed to find the back of the net in five straight away matches, losing the last four of those games.

Morocco international Nordin Amrabat has been playing up front on his own and the on-loan Watford forward will not strike fear into Barca’s defence.

Going the other way, Philippe Coutinho has netted in three of his last nine games and should get a run-out here, as he is ineligible for Champions League duty.

The former Liverpool star is 3/2 to score at anytime and that completes our Barcelona vs Leganes betting tips.
