Since a late winner which was awarded after a VAR review was struck by Arturo Vidal barcelona came from behind to snatch a 2-1 victory at struggling Leganes.
The hosts had taken the lead in coach Javier Aguirres first home match in charge due to a great strike from Morocco forward Youssef En-Nesyri in the 12th minute.
Leganes spurned two chances to expand their advantage before the break but Barca levelled at the 52nd minute when Luis Suarez glanced in the free-kick of Lionel Messi.
Barca were unconvincing again away from home but won the match because of a lucky goal in the 79th minute from Vidal.
If he pumped in from close range, the Chilean midfielder was at a clear position but a VAR review ruled him as the ball was bounced off Leganes Ruben Perez.
Barca extend their lead at the top of the table by three points, when they host Real Sociedad though second-placed Real Madrid can go level.
Barca face rivals Atletico Madrid from home and will need to do so.
