CD Leganes held off FC Barcelona for nearly an hour, Kenneth Omeruo at the heart of the Los Pepineros back four, but goals from Luis Suarez and a controversial Arturo Vidal strike sealed a comeback win for the Liga champions.
Omeruo made just one tackle, but was generally effective in the game as the bottom team in the league attempted an upset against the table toppers.
Lionel Messi was reduced to on shot, but got an assist for the leveler on 53 minutes, after the host scored early (12′) through Youssef En-Nesyri.
Vidal will deliver what proved the winner scoring near post from rebound off a Leganes player after a corner kick.
The goal was subject to a VAR review and it was given after the Referee consulted.
Saturday’s defeat leaves Leganes with just one victory in fourteen league matches.
