FC Barcelona lost for the first time this season after losing in Madrid to Leganés. Barça took the lead early in the first half courtesy of a powerful volley from outside the area. However, Barça’s lapse of concentration at the back cost them twice in a short time span as Nabil El Zhar and Oscar Rodriguez score rapid goals to give their side a shock 2-1 lead and ultimately, shock upset victory. This result means FC Barcelona are still league leaders since Real Madrid also fell 3-0 away to Sevilla. The Blaugrana will have a few days to get over this loss because they will be hosting Athletic on Saturday.
