Leganes vs Barcelona
Spanish La Liga

(Att: 12110)

Since a scrappy winner that was awarded after 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 very first home game in charge due to a strike.
Leganes spurned two chances to expand their advantage but Barca levelled in the 52nd minute when Luis Suarez glanced in Lionel Messis free-kick.
Barca were unconvincing from home but won the match as a result of a lucky goal in the 79th minute from Vidal.
The midfielder was at a clear offside position when he knocked in from close selection but he was suppressed by a VAR review as the ball had bounced off Leganes Ruben Perez.
Barca temporarily extend their lead on peak of the table by three factors, when they sponsor Real Sociedad later on 32, even though Real Madrid can go flat.
Barca face rivals Atletico Madrid from house and will need to do this.
