Lionel Messi was captured by football and then scored a penalty because Barcelona eased pressure on Real Madrid in a 2-0 victory over Leganes at the empty Camp Nou Stadium on Tuesday.
Messi was dragged to the ground in the first half by diving his arms around Unai Bustinza's waist. The second time he was knocked down again, this time he was fined and he converted.
After 33 appearances, Messi has 26 goals this season. In the last eight games, he has 7 goals and 8 assists.
The 17-year-old Ansu Fati led the Barcelona team earlier and continued his breakthrough season with the fifth goal in eight league starts.
If Miguel-Angel Guerrero seized one of the two golden early opportunities, but the first was eliminated and the second was rejected by the position, Leganes would have been Make the incumbent champion feel uncomfortable.
"At first we were a bit lucky," Barcelona coach Quicque Setien admitted.
But his team's poor performance was a five-point advantage over Madrid, who could reduce their record to two points by defeating Valencia at home on Thursday.
After a three-month break, Valencia will conduct a more thorough examination of Madrid’s sharpness, and Barcelona are expected to undergo a more difficult test than Leganes, from Friday to Seville’s third straight Bit start.
Setian hopes that Gerard Pique will recover from the tough challenge, which means he will need to sew stitches on his shin. Setian said: "It split his leg guard." "We hope this is not serious."
The Leganis have fallen to the bottom of the table and are destined to be relegated. Their chances of survival are snatched by Barcelona because they urgently signed the top scorer Martin Braithwaite in February.
The Leganis are not alone, and feel that the rules have caused them disproportionate harm, and the fact that Breswaite sat on the bench for a full 90 minutes has exacerbated their sense of injustice.
