La Liga returned last week and we will have a great game when FC Barcelona hosts CD Leganes on Tuesday. There were many safety protocols in place, just like the Bundesliga had.
For example, La Liga games were played behind closed doors and each team had five substitutions. The competition resumes after it was postponed on March 12th because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
FC Barcelona is in first place in La Liga while CD Leganes is 19th in the standings with 23 points in 29 games, fighting to avoid relegation. FC Barcelona is coming off a 4-0 road victory against Real Mallorca on Saturday while CD Leganes lost 2-1 at home against Real Valladolid last Saturday.
FC Barcelona: -625
CD Leganes: +1150
FC Barcelona: -2 (-124)
CD Leganes: +2 (+104)
Over 3, 3.5 (+101)
Under 3, 3.5 (-121)
Key Points to Consider
FC Barcelona, coming off a 4-0 road win against Real Mallorca, have four wins, one draw and one loss in their last six overall. CD Leganes, coming off a 2-1 home loss against Real Valladolid, have three losses, two draws and one win in their last six overall.
Momentum: FC Barcelona has been on an upward trend — winning four of their last five games in La Liga.
Head-to-Head: These two sides last met in La Liga action on November 23, 2019 and FC Barcelona won 2-1.
Simulations I have run project Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann, Martin Braithwaite, Arturo Vidal and Óscar Rodríguez Arnaiz as the players most likely to score (the first four are from FC Barcelona).
I don’t want to disrespect CD Leganes but they have no chance against FC Barcelona, the best team in La Liga. That said, I can’t take FC Barcelona at -625, there’s no value.
The question here is not whether FC Barcelona will win or not. The question is can FC Barcelona cover the goal line? CD Leganes’ last three losses in La Liga were by two goals or less but this is FC Barcelona and the suspension of this tournament helped them.
