Barcelona are going in search of a seventh successive LaLiga win

Barcelona will look for a seventh successive victory and extend their lead at the top of the table in LaLiga when they welcome the 13th placed Leganes on Sunday at the Camp Nou.

After controversy marred victory over Levante in the Copa del Rey, Barcelona turns their attention to the league as they look to secure the lead at the top of the table. The Blaugrana are on a six-match winning streak in the league since drawing at the Wanda Metropolitano in November. They have scored 18 and conceded just one in those six victories.

Leganes is in good form coming into this fixture with victories over Real Madrid and Huesca in their last two matches. A victory will see the team from the outskirts of Madrid breaking into the top half of the table.

Leganes defeated Barcelona 2-1 earlier this season and the Catalan giants would want to make amends for the loss at Leganes.
