Barcelona vs Leganes Team News

Left-back Jordi Alba scored at the weekend but also picked up his fifth yellow card of the season, meaning he is suspended for Tuesday's clash.

Clement Lenglet will return from suspension while Ivan Rakitic and Arthur come into the starting eleven, along with youngster Ansu Fati.

Leganes have two key players suspended, with first-choice centre-back Dimitris Siovas and top scorer Oscar Rodriguez both unavailable.

Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen; Roberto, Pique, Lenglet, Junior; Rakitic, Busquets, Arthur; Messi, Griezmann, Fati

Barcelona vs Leganes Preview

Leganes have managed to cause Barcelona some problems over the last couple of seasons and back in November, the Catalans had to come from behind to win 2-1 when the sides met in Madrid.

They have also scored in each of their three previous league visits to Camp Nou, although that record looks set to end on Tuesday with Los Pepineros badly struggling in the final third.

Indeed, the team from the Spanish capital are the lowest scorers in the division and just eight of their 22 goals this season have come on the road.

Suspended midfielder Oscar Rodriguez accounts for 36 per cent of their total goals and no one in the squad comes close to matching his total of eight strikes.

Leganes have failed to score in seven of their last 11 away games and they are likely to get precious few chances to do so against the league leaders.

Barcelona vs Leganes Tips And Predictions

Barca to win to nil is offered at 8/11 (1.72) while Setien's men can be backed at 11/10 (2.10) to win both halves, both of which look like strong selections. 

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
