Spain La Liga
(28 Feb 2018)
Atletico Madrid – Leganes
Atletico Madrid welcomes Leganes in a match for the 26th round of the Spanish La Liga.
Atletico Madrid: After 17 wins, 7 draws and 1 loss, the home team is in the 2nd position, having won 58 points so far. Diego Simeone’s side will be seeking to follow up on their deserved victory (5-2) against Sevilla, a game in which they created a host of chances. Also, Atletico Madrid has won their last 5 matches while unbeaten in last 8. Furthermore, this team will hope for more action from Antoine Griezmann, who has six goals and two assists in his last six league games.
Leganes: The away team is currently in the 14th position of the league, with 30 points won, after 8 wins, 6 draws and 11 losses. On the other side, Leganes will be aiming to improve upon their goalless draw with Las Palmas. They find themselves cosy in the mid-table, with an 11-point cushion over the bottom three. However, a winless run of five games means that they come into this game with more unsolved questions than ambitions to move up.
Conclusion: This is the clash of two ”underish” teams as Atletico have been the most frugal team in La Liga while the visitors have struggled for goals. However, the hosts are going through a completely different reality from Leganes. In that case, it won’t be surprising a comfortable victory for Atletico Madrid with several goals on the final scoreboard.
