Atletico Madrid would be the sole real name chasers after Real Madrid’s 0-1 defeat to reigning champions Barcelona in last weekend El Clasico in Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. The Mattressers are as many as seven points behind Blaugrana in the peak of the ladder, but their latest spell of form is still very promising coming to the most significant part the season.
Atleti won four on the trot in most contests without conceding one goal on the way. They gained a gigantic 1-0 cushion in the first leg of their Champions League R16 tie against Serie A giants Juventus. They backed up such triumph with two different 2-0 victories over the likes of Villarreal and Real Sociedad in national affairs to remain seven points shy from the Catalans in the peak of the Primera Division ladder.
Atletico Madrid vs Leganes: Prediction
Leganes are secure sitting in 11th place in the league ladder largely as a result of their outstanding type in games at Butarque in which they dropped just 1 of 13 this year. The story is completely different when they must travel as the Legionaries have a poor away record of two wins, 3 draws and 9 declines in 13 games on the road up to now in the effort.
Mauricio Pellegrino’s guys lost four of five games on the street in most contests. Though Diego Simeone could make some adjustments to his starting line-up so as to maintain his key figures new for the opposite osmosis of their Champions League tie against Juventus, we anticipate a one-way road from the get go for Atletico Madrid here.
