Leonesa vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Cultural Leonesa was at the comfort of their home in their previous encounter in their schedule. They faced R.Union in the Segunda Division B which ended in a goalless draw. They are unbeaten for their past eighteen matches in major competitions.

Besides that, the host had to defeat a La Liga 2 side in their previous Copa del Rey fixture. Along with that, Leonesa will be holding on to the home ground advantage since they are performing well at home.

Even so, they have faced teams from inferior leagues when compared to La Liga. as such, it is going to be a hard knock for Leonesa when they face La Liga giants Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid is in great form this season. However, they will be down after losing in the Super Cup final against Real Madrid despite defeating Barcelona in the Semi-Final.

Apart from that, Atletico was on the road in their prior match too. They were subjected to a 2-0 loss against Eibar in that match. Be that as it may, the visitor has lost only once in their previous five away fixtures.

Hence, Atletico has more chance of moving onto the next round of the tournament. Even so, we can also expect the visitor to lead in both halves of ninety minutes.

With Morata and Joao Felix in form, Atletico Madrid will likely score over 1.5 goals in the clash.
