Barcelona and Real Madrid both suffered significant defeats on same day in their quest to pursue the Spanish La Liga title.
Barca who traveled to Leganes took the lead in the first half through Philipe Coutinho in the twelfth minutes from Lionel Messi’s pass which made the Catalans take the lead at first half.
But two second half strikes from the host gave them a comeback and a potential victory loomed until the referee’s final whistle confirmed that Leganes had secured their first ever victory against Barca.
The victory for Leganes means they have leaped out of the relegation zone to the 17th position on the table.
In Sevilla it was a resounding victory for the host after they stunned European champions Real Madrid in a 3-0 victory that moved them closer to the top four in a classical style.
Real Madrid had hoped to take advantage of Barcelona’s earlier shocking 2-1 defeat at bottom-of-the-table Leganes before they met their own defeat.
Interestingly, Alaves now have the opportunity to join the two rivals on 13 points at the top of the table if they beat Getafe on Thursday.
The losses means Real Madrid and Barcelona have jointly lost in La Liga on same day for the first time since 4 January 2015.
Despite the losses, the two teams still remain on top of the table
