Barca vs Leganes: Messi is one goal away from 700 career goals as Fati scores



Barcelona are not yet firing on all cylinders but won once again against Leganes at Camp Nou on Tuesday.

Goals from Ansu Fati and Lionel Messi proved decisive as Barcelona made hard work of a 2-0 home win over Leganes to further boost their LaLiga title hopes..

The Blaugrana had not been as convincing as the scoreline suggested when they thrashed 4-0 Real Mallorca away at the weekend, and they toiled against another struggling outfit on Tuesday

But Quique Setien’s side secured another three points after Fati – Barca’s standout star – broke the deadlock three minutes before half-time.

Messi then scored his 699th goal for club and country from the penalty spot as Barca extended their advantage at the top of the table to five points, at least until Real Madrid host Valencia on Thursday.
