LaLiga: Deportivo Alaves miss out on opportunity to climb atop standings after defeat to struggling Leganes
Deportivo Alaves could have leapfrogged Barcelona, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid with victory, but instead remain fourth in the Spanish top flight, three points clear of sixth-placed Real Madrid.
Deportivo Alaves missed the chance to move top of LaLiga on Friday as they suffered a 1-0 loss at struggling Leganes.
The 2001 UEFA Cup runners-up could have leapfrogged Barcelona, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid with victory, but instead remain fourth in the Spanish top flight, three points clear of sixth-placed Real Madrid.
Youssef En-Nesyri forced home the only goal of the game three minutes before half-time, and Alaves failed to muster a response.
Leganes had the better chances in the second half, with Oscar and Guido Carrillo both going close to adding a second.
Barcelona and Atletico go head-to-head at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday, with only a point separating the two, while second-placed Sevilla host Real Valladolid on Sunday.
