Not afraid of the vacuum: back in the Camp Nou closed to the public, the FC Barcelona has taken provisionally five points ahead of rival Real Madrid, dominating the red lantern Leganés (2-0) on Tuesday the 29th day of Liga.
A nugget and a genie in a jewel case empty: with two goals from the promising young 17-year-old Ansu Fati (42nd) and six-time Golden Ball Lionel Messi on the penalty spot (66), Barça has managed to forget the heavy silence of the Camp Nou, and has again put the pressure on the shoulders of Zinedine Zidane and the Real head of the ranking.

Direct red card
The catalans have been struggling to begin, while the largest stadium in Europe and its 99’354 seats were closed to the public due to the health protocol post-pandemic… which allowed the referee to clearly distinguish between the displeasure of the coach of Leganes Javier Aguirre, and send him a direct red card in injury time (95th).
The trio attack Leo Messi – Antoine Griezmann – Luis Suarez has been convened again for a half-hour at the end of the match. Only the Argentine has scored.
