Match Preview

Barcelona will be looking to strengthen their spot at the top of La Liga when they continue their 2019-20 campaign at home to struggling Leganes on Tuesday night.

The Spanish champions recorded a 4-0 win over Mallorca on their return to action at the weekend, while Leganes lost 2-1 at home to Real Valladolid to remain inside the relegation zone.

Goals from Arturo Vidal, Martin Braithwaite, Jordi Alba and Lionel Messi saw Barca record a 4-0 win over relegation-threatened Mallorca on their return to action on Saturday night.

The result helped Quique Setien's side move five points clear at the top of the table, although second-placed Real Madrid will have the chance to close the gap to two once again when they face Eibar on Sunday.

Barca are in charge of their own destiny at this stage, though, despite the fact that they have already suffered five defeats from their 28 league matches during the 2019-20 campaign.

The Catalan giants will expect to overcome Leganes on Tuesday, but they then have a difficult game away to Sevilla on June 19 before a tricky home clash against Athletic Bilbao on June 23.

There are bound to be twists and turns in the title race over the next few weeks, but Barca's impressive result and indeed performance against Mallorca suggests that they are up for the challenge.

It is going to be difficult for the visitors to pick up a positive result on Tuesday, but Los Pepineros have a huge game against Mallorca on June 19, which could prove decisive in their battle against the drop.

Leganes finished 13th last season after only just staying in the league in 2016-17 and 2017-18, but there is no question that they are currently locked in a fight to secure their status at this level.

Team News And Statistics

 As for Leganes, Argentine attacker Alexander Szymanowski is again expected to miss out with a knee problem, but Aguirre's side have no fresh injury concerns ahead of their trip to Camp Nou.

There are not expected to be many changes from the side that started against Valladolid, with Oscar Rodriguez, Roque Mesa and Kevin Rodrigues all set to keep their spots.

That said, Bryan Gil and Aitor Ruibal were among five players to appear off the bench at the weekend and could be in Aguirre's thinking for Tuesday's contest.

  Ousmane Dembele is still on the sidelines for Barca with a long-term hamstring injury, while Alba is suspended due to the yellow card that he picked up in the win over Mallorca.

Alba's spot at the back could be taken by Junior Firpo, while there is expected to be another change in defence with Clement Lenglet available after serving a suspension on Saturday night.

Vidal could again keep out Ivan Rakitic and Arthur to start alongside Frenkie de Jong and Sergio Busquets in midfield, while Sergi Roberto should again get the nod over Nelson Semedo at right-back.

Luis Suarez was named on the bench at the weekend, but the Uruguay international, who has recovered from a knee injury, could return to the front three alongside Messi and Antoine Griezmann, with Braithwaite dropping out despite getting his name on the scoresheet last time out.
