Barca left it late against Leganes. Late in the first half of Barcelona’s unflattering 2-1 win over Leganes on Sunday, some of the home fans verbalized their support for the defending Spanish champions’ increasingly embattled manager Luis Enrique. Two seasons ago, in Lucho’s first campaign in charge, Barca won the treble – La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League.
Atalanta maintained its push for a European spot by defeating relegation-threatened Crotone 1-0 in Serie A on Saturday. It was more difficult than Atalanta perhaps expected but Andrea Conti scored to propel Atalanta into fourth spot, one point above Lazio and three above Inter Milan, which visits Bologna on Sunday. Atalanta is three points below the Champions League qualifying spots.
