Barcelona vs Malaga

Leganes vs Barcelona – Leganes host Barcelona at Estadio Butarque on 17th September, Saturday for their fourth La Liga fixture of the season. Both clubs come into this fixture on the back of their first league defeat of the season.

Barcelona fell to a 2-1 defeat at home against Alaves while Sporting Gijon defeated Leganes by a similar scoreline. Although it is pretty early into the new season, Barcelona are fifth on the table with six points while Leganes are in the twelfth position with four points.

Team News

Both clubs have relatively healthy squads for the managers to choose from. Jon Ander Serantes and Martin Mantovani are available for the home side while Marc-Andre ter Stegen is expected to start in goal for Barcelona.

Leganes Possible Starting Lineup: Serantes, Pablo Insua, Martin Mantovani, Diego Rico, Victor Diaz, David Timor, Alberto, Unai Lopez, Adrian Marin, Gabriel, Guerrero.

Barcelona Possible Starting Lineup: Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Sergi Roberto, Gerard Pique, Samuel Umiti, Jordi Alba, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Neymar.

“We have to adapt [to the schedule]. It’s going to be the same for both teams. The objective is the same; we try to win every game. I can guarantee they (Leganes) are organized and they defend well. It won’t be an easy game by any means. We saw last year that points can be made up quickly. We’re not playing for the title right now.”

– Luis Enrique, Barcelona.
