Leganes vs Atletico Madrid
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
Atletico had a tough opener but managed to deal with it without making a hoopla. They went against Getafe, who were in contention for the final Champions League spot till the very last match-day last campaign. Courtesy an Alvaro Morata goal, the team registered a 1-0 win in front of their home crowd, to right away announce their intentions to challenge for the league title.
Taking into account the struggles of the two titans, Barcelona and Real Madrid, this is a great opportunity for the squad to go after glory.
This upcoming match-day provides them a great chance to post two wins on the road, as they are taking on Leganes, who had finished a less than modest 13th in the table, as opposed to their counterparts who ended up as the runner-up.
Moreover, the lower-tier side just lost their opener, and embarrassingly it was against the newly-promoted Osasuna, and to add insult to injury, it was at home as well.
By the looks of things, Diego Simeone’s boys are slowly coming of age, and it definitely is a scary prospect for the stalwarts of Europe.

Leganes vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Madrid, as usual, was one of the best teams in the competition last time around, and even finished higher than the mighty Los Blancos. This time they have started with a bang and smells an opportunity taking into account the problems that Barca and Real are currently facing. For sure, the previous runners-up will go for the win, and as always, their defense could be counted on to do a spectacular job.
Moreover, Leganes is fresh off the defeat from Osasuna and also conceded the last four h2h wins to their opponents. In addition, they failed to score in eight of the former eleven such ties and could manage just two goals from the previous six encounters at this venue combined.
And finally, the hosts are winless against this opponent at home, and the last official win they recorded was back in 2002.
With all these in mind, count on the top-tier Atleti to register a comprehensive win.
