Leganes vs Atletico Madrid
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 3 November 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
Atletico Madrid rebounded from a tough 4-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund by beating Real Sociedad 2-0 last weekend at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. The Mattresses struggled to create up front once again, but goals came from behind through defenders Diego Godin and Filipe Luis. The win helped Diego Simeone’s men keep ground on leaders Barcelona who are still just two points away at the very top of the Primera Divisions standings.
Atleti were also successful in mid-week when their mixed side saw off the Tercera Division outfit Sant Andreu 0-1 in the first leg of the last 32 round in Copa del Rey. It was Gelson Martins who made the difference on Tuesday evening netting the only goal of the game just after the half-hour mark. Can Atleti make it three wins on the bounce within seven days on Saturday when they travel to Estadio Municipal de Butarque to take on Leganes in the 11th round of La Liga?
Leganes vs Atletico Madrid: Head-to-head
Atletico Madrid were the dominant force in the history of head to head matches against the Legionaries.

Leganes failed to find the back of the net in last five encounters with the Mattressers.
Leganes vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction
The hosts dropped down into the red zone after a poor display in a 2-0 loss away at Levante in the previous round. Their defensive woes were continued on Tuesday when the Legionaries only drew 2.2 at home to Rayo Vallecano in the first leg of their Copa del Rey tie.
Leganes thus shipped two or more goals in three of last four games in all competitions. Given they’ll be up against title contenders here, the away win is the only logical betting option for us.
