Barcelona 2-1 Leganes: Messi to the rescue with late penalty


Barcelona defeated struggling new boys Leganes 2-1, but they had to rely on a late 90th minute penalty from Lionel Messi to seal the win. Barcelona took an early 4th minute lead after some good counter-attacking play from Luis Suarez and Messi, but conceded an equaliser later in the second-half due to a big error from goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen. Neymar was brought down in the box in the closing moments and Messi managed to convert the spot-kick.
