Barcelona is welcoming Leganes in LaLiga week 20 game.

Barcelona is one of the best teams in Spain and the world. Barca are led by one of the best players in history of the game, Lionel Messi. Barcelona plays nice, attractive and offense oriented soccer with a lot of ball possesion that creates goal chances. At home, Barcelona has only 1 loss this season with 7 wins and 2 draws. At the moment Barcelona are at the top of LaLiga standings, but only 2 points in front of Atletico Madrid. Barcelona has a few injured players which includes 2 of their important defenders, Umtiti and Vermaelen. The core of Barcelona's game lies in high preasure and ball possesion in the middle of the field where Busquets and Rakitic are dominating anyone they play against. Barcelona's atomic offense is lead by Messi, fallowed by Suarez and Dembele or Coutinho; the four of them combined scored 42 goals so far, which is more than double of the entire Leganes team. Defensively, Barcelona are known to make mistakes but they are often saved by their goalkeeper Ter Steagen.

Leganes isn't a bad team, they are holding at the middle of the standings and have pretty much secured their status in LaLiga for next season, which was their goal before the season started. Leganes has only one win away this season and have won only 6 points thus far away from their stadium. Leganes scored only 17 goals thus far and conceded 21 which is only 1 more then Barcelona,this differential tells us that they are very defensive team who does not have a lot of ball possession or created goal chances. Legenes best player is Guido Carillo who scored 5 goals but he is injured and most likely wont play tomorrow. Leganes has a few other injuries but even if they didn't, that wouldn't affect the outcome of this game in my opinion.

Leganes have beaten Barcelona before and they are coming into this game without any expectations which can be helpful but it isn't likely here. Leganes are coming to defend which is very hard to do for whole 90 minutes against team like Barcelona. Im expecting total domination from Barcelona and their victory with at least 4 goals in a match.

Pick:
Barcelona to win and score 3 Or More +105

On July 1, 2008 I typed into Google "How Do I start A Blog" and I started my first website called "Miami Mitch's Place" where i shared my college football Picks and predictions as well as opinion. By the Fall I had heard from many that the title made it sound like the site was about Miami so I changed it to "College Football Place" (cfbplace.com), After the 2008 college football season I change focus and launched CBBplace.com, it wasn't long after that when I realized I just wanted one place to add all sports, and that's when Sports Chat Place was born.

This site is a big Thank You to all of our readers, visitors, and community where we have been given a platform to talk to the masses about sports and hopefully help put you on some winners. If you need to reach me just shoot an email to [email protected]
