The match is scheduled to get underway at 13h00.

The Catalan giants were handed the first defeat of the season, as they went down 2-1 to newly promoted Deportivo Alaves at the Camp Nou.

Although, Luis Enrique's charges redeemed themselves with a 7-0 thumping Celtic in the UEFA Champions League.

Denis Suárez and Mathieu have returned to the Barcelona squad, while Masip, Sergio Busquets, Digne and Aleix Vidal have been left out.

Leganes, meanwhile, have endured a decent start to the life in the Spanish top flight, having recorded one win a draw in their opening three games.

Here's how they will line-up:

Leganes: Serantes, Unai Bustinza, Machis, Gabriel, Medjani, Kone, Rico, Victor Diaz, Insua, Unai Lopez, Sastre

FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Mascherano, Pique, Umtiti; Rafinha, Rakitic, Iniesta, Alba; Messi, Neymar, Suarez
