Leganes vs Barcelona predictions and La Liga betting tips for Wednesday night’s fixture. Kick-off is 7:00pm on the 26th of September and our tipster has selected three recommended bets.
Today’s La Liga betting tips begin with a fairly comfortable away win. Leganes sit bottom of the league and are struggling for form. They haven’t scored a La Liga goal since September 1st and they are lacking in confidence at the moment. That doesn’t bode well for this midweek fixture against Barcelona. Ernesto Valverde’s men dropped points at the weekend but that’s a rarity and Girona excel at taking points off the top sides and have played in a similar way against Real Madrid. Leganes can’t match Girona’s firepower and it’s hard to see them causing Barcelona too many issues here. The visitors have won 5-0 and 3-1 on their previous visits to this ground and a similar scoreline is a distinct possibility. At around 2/7, Barcelona will be featured in many people’s accumulator tips this midweek but we are searching for greater value. Over 2.5 Goals has landed in four of Barcelona’s five domestic matches so far with only Real Valldolid preventing the champions from adding to their lead. The newcomers have only conceded five times this season whereas Leganes have shipped double that tally and are likely to be given the runaround. Barcelona’s slip-up at the weekend isn’t likely to affect them here and they should ease to a victory against an out-of-sorts opposition. Barcelona Win and Over 2.5 Goals is available at 3/4 with Ladbrokes and is the first of our Leganes vs Barcelona predictions for Wednesday evening.
Our betting tips have already determined that there should be goals in this tie and the Over 3.5 Goals market could be the area to exploit. Leganes haven’t netted in their last two games in La Liga but they did raise their game when hosting Real Sociedad and drew 2-2. They have netted in one of their previous two ties against this opposition and there is every chance of a repeat. Barcelona weren’t at their imperious best at the weekend but it doesn’t much for them to click. They’ve netted 16 times so far this campaign and they are likely to name their strongest side for this midweek clash as they won’t want Real Madrid to capitalise. With nine goals during the previous two meetings, this match could be hugely entertaining and Over 3.5 Goals is available at 11/8 with 888Sport and you can use their £30 free bet to back our La Liga betting tips.
When it comes to providing anytime goalscorer tips on Barcelona matches, we are often spoilt for choice. Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi are always going to be towards the top of the betting but we prefer the price on Ousmane Dembele. The Frenchman is a confidence player and he’s in good form coming into this fixture. He’s Barcelona’s joint second top scorer with three goals so far this season and he also hit the target in the Champions League as well. He is likely to use is pace to unlock the Leganes defence and that could be the key to Barcelona’s success. He is attractively priced and is available at 8/5 with Bet365. Ousmane Dembele is the third of our Leganes vs Barcelona predictions.
Barcelona Win – 1/4
Draw – 5/1
Leganes Win – 11/1
Unsurprisingly, Barcelona are starting as odds-on favourites for this clash and they can be backed at 1/4 with Bet365. Barcelona rarely drop points two matches in a row and although it happened earlier in 2018, it was against superior opposition and Leganes are unlikely to inflict a defeat on their visitors. They are 11/1 to cause a shock here. Many punters will be looking to get involved on the handicaps and Barcelona -1 could be tempting at 8/11. -2 is available at 7/4 and ambitious punters may be looking at -3 which is a tasty 4/1. Barcelona and Both Teams to Score is also 7/4 and has landed in two of their last three matches.
2-0 Barcelona is the shortest price correct score available and it’s priced at 11/2. It was 3-1 here last season and it’s 10/1 for a repeat of that scoreline whilst a 4-0 success for the visitors is available at 11/1.
Lionel Messi leads the way in the first goalscorer market and is 21/10 to net the opener. He recently scored a hat-trick in the Champions League and has five goals for the campaign so far. Team-mate Luis Suarez is 11/4 whilst Leganes’ main goal threat Nabil El Zhar is priced at 20/1 to score the opening goal of the game. He is searching for his third goal of the season.
