Leganes vs Barcelona
Spanish La Liga
12:00pm Saturday 23rd November
As a overdue winner that was awarded following a VAR review was struck by Arturo Vidal, barcelona came from behind to snatch a 2-1 victory at Leganes.
The rock-bottom hosts had taken the lead in coach Javier Aguirres first home match in charge due to a great strike.
Leganes spurned two opportunities to expand their advantage but Barca levelled in the 52nd minute when Luis Suarez glanced in Lionel Messis free-kick.
Barca were unconvincing again but won the game in the 79th minute as a result of a lucky goal from Vidal.
The midfielder was in a transparent offside position when he knocked in from close variety but he was ruled by a VAR review as the ball had bounced off Leganes Ruben Perez.
Though second-placed Real Madrid can go level together when they sponsor Real Sociedad in the future Saturday barca temporarily extend their lead at the top of the table by three factors.
