Barcelona dropped their first points of the season last time out as they drew 2-2 at the Camp Nou to Girona on Sunday.

They are now tied on 13 points with Real Madrid at the top of La Liga and will look to get back to winning ways when they visit Leganes on Wednesday.

]Leganes were promoted to La Liga for the first time in 2016 and have since hosted Barcelona twice at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque. The aggregate score from those two fixtures is 8-1 in the visitors’ favour.

Despite the Blaugrana being being held by Girona at the weekend, they still look well-equipped to continue their dominance over Leganes.

Lionel Messi is in excellent form having netted a combined eight goals in six La Liga and UEFA Champions League games this season, and he will relish the prospect of taking on a defence that has already conceded 10 goals this term.

There seems little possibility of Wednesday’s fixture being anything other than a procession for Barca as they look to maintain their position at the top of the table.
