It was seen a stumble coming from the Catalans who were showing intermittent football, with a Valverde that was only a little worried a few dates ago, but now he can be completely worried. 68 seconds were enough for Leganes to turn the game around and beat the league leader.
Valverde tried to start the match without Jordi Alba and Luis Suárez, in a first half where Barcelona dominated with a great Lionel Messi, Coutinho would put barça ahead after an assist from the GOAT, the Brazilian would lift the ball and send a volley right hit to the stick. Messi would continue looking for his goal but the stick would keep saying no. This game would end the first half with a Barcelona dominating the game and the scoreboard.
The second part would have nothing to do with the first one, the Leganés went through it with all, especially intensity and avoided Barcelona could put together its game. The prize for this daring Leganés would came in the minute 52, when El Zhar would take advantage of the passivity of Vermaelen, finishing off a center from the right and putting the equality in the score, the second goal would arrive quickly whit a center kick off from Barcelona, Munir lost the ball and the Leganés sent it quickly to the back of Piqué who would commit the error of the date by giving it to Óscar who with the empty archery does not forgive and puts the second on the Leganés account.
Valverde would try to overcome this by sending the entire artillery to the field, Suarez, Alba, and Malcolm by Munir, Vermaelen, and Dembélé, the 3 of them with a disastrous game. But they would crash with Cuellar that with a double intervention to Coutinho and Rakitic would maintain the victory of his team.
On a date where the Real Madrid would also lose, this first defeat means that there is a league in Spain, with Atlético de Madrid only 2 points behind the leaders and Sevilla, Espanyol and the surprising Alavés with a difference of 3 points.
