Barcelona Comes from Behind to Defeat Leganes

Second half goals from Arturo Vidal and Luiz Suarez has earned Spanish La Liga leaders Barcelona 3pts as they came from behind to beat bottom club Leganes.

Youssef En-Nesyri’s stunning early strike put Leganes ahead while Barcelona toiled in response.

The champions improved after the break and Luis Suarez equalised with a clinical header.

Vidal’s finish put the leaders three points clear of rivals Real Madrid, who play Real Sociedad (20:00 GMT).

The Chilean midfielder’s goal was fortuitous, Ousmane Dembele’s corner deflecting kindly off Ruben Perez and falling to Vidal, who could not miss from a yard out.

Barcelona have lost three times away from home this season and looked nervy in the first half, deservedly falling behind when En-Nesyri picked out the top corner with a rasping shot after 11 minutes.

Oscar Rodriguez should have doubled the home side’s lead but found the side-netting as their visitors struggled to get going in the final third.

After half-time, Barca centre-back Gerard Pique hit the post but they will be relieved to have escaped from this fixture with all three points.
