Leganes are hosting Atletico Madrid
It’s going to be really interesting at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque in Leganes on Sunday night. It’s time for some good football because Leganes are hosting Atletico Madrid in a match from the second round of La Liga. Let’s turn our attention to this clash in our La Liga predictions for today.
Leganes can’t be satisfied with the way they started the new campaign. Mauricio Pellegrino’s boys hosted the newcomers Osasuna, but they suffered a 0-1 defeat in front of their own fans. Osasuna’s winning goal was scored in the 75th minute when the Argentine striker Ezequiel Avila put the ball in the net after an assist from Roberto Torres.
In the last few minutes Leganes’ Oscar Rodriguez was sent off with a red card, so he won’t be avaliable for the home game against Atletico. That’s even more problems for the manager Pellegrino at the moment.
Atletico Madrid’s first game for the season wasn’t easy, but ended will and that’s the most important thing. Los Colchoneros hosted Getafe at the Wanda Metropolitano and enjoyed a tough, but important 1-0 win. Alvaro Morata scored the only goal in the game in the first half, executing a good header after a cross from the new signing Kieran Trippier.
Surely Atletico’s fans will be happy with the performance of the club’s record signing Joao Felix. The young Portuguese star showed some moments of magic with the ball, so most likely he’s going to replace Antoine Griezmann pretty well. There’s no doubt that Felix is going to become a huge star in future.
That’s our look at the La Liga clash between Leganes and Atletico Madrid. In our La Liga predictions for today we think that the visitors are a very big favourite here. Leganes didn’t start the season well and clearly they are having some problems at the moment. Atletico just look better now.
