Our Prediction:

Atletico Madrid will win

Leganes – Atletico Madrid Match Prediction | 20-08-2019

Backing Alvaro Morata to score anytime could also be worth a punt. With Diego Costa and Nikola Kalinic carrying injuries, it seems unlikely he will be one of those rested. The former Chelsea man has been a revelation since he joined from Chelsea with 3 key league goals and a couple of other strikes that were narrowly ruled out by VAR. He is a confidence player and right now he will really believe in his abilities so theres every chance he finds the net again in this one.

That includes a shock win over Barcelona and theyve only lost 1 of their last 6 at home in all competitions so this wont be plain sailing for Atleti. They currently sit down in 18th place but only 4 of their opening 10 games have been at home. They are much stronger on their own patch and 7 of their 8 points so far have come in front of their own fans.

Los Rojiblancos are currently the highest ranked of the five Madrid sides in La Liga and theyd actually move 8 points clear of Real with victory here, temporarily at least. Right now they look perhaps the most likely challengers to Barcelonas supremacy this term but they have had their own problems, highlighted most glaringly in their 4-0 Champions League defeat to Dortmund the week before last.

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? 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.

Atletico Madrid vs Leganes Predictions

That may give Leganes a bit more of a sniff but they will need to pull something really special out the bag to get the job done. They werent at their best on Monday night but still managed to edge past Levante at home. That made it 10 points from 5 league outings and they are now just 3 points off a possible European place.

Lady Maria Victoria Pavon is the first female president in the history of the club and she has been in charge of the club since 2009. The colour of the teams home kit is white and blue, whilst their away kits are green. The likes of Pierre Webo, Samuel Etoo, Ivan Zarandona, Jose Chamot, Catanha, Ruben Falcon, Jordi Lardin and Pedro Lago are famous players who were part of the Batarque outfit in the past.

Leganes are tough to beat at home, but seeing that Atletico Madrid produced a fine performance in a 1-0 win over Getafe, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Los Pepineros aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Osasuna, but they are seen as underdogs in Sundays football match against the fellow capital club. Leganes and Atletico Madrid face each other in a small Madrid derby at Estadio Municipal de Butarque.

Antoine Griezmanns tally of 2 goals in 10 league starts this term is also poor and theyve struggled to create much on their previous top flight visits to Butarque. Atleti have bounced back since, with two wins to nil in league and cup but they continue to struggle for goals. Diego Costa hasnt scored a league goal since way back in February, which is an extraordinarily poor return for a player of his quality. Their two strikes against Sociedad last weekend both came courtesy of defenders but they really need their forwards to start firing.

Atletico Madrid vs Leganes Best Odds

It has to be noted that in their last meeting at Estadio Vicente Calderon Atletico Madrid crushed Leganes 4-0. Alvaro Morata has found his goal-scoring touch of late and we are positive that he is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders in Saturdays football match. Los Rojiblancos are after their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the Spanish top flight and seeing that Leganes are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that Diego Simeones troops are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration. Leganes are eager to grab something from the local derby against Atletico Madrid, given los Rojiblancos impressive home record, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. Atletico Madrid will be looking to extend their winning run in La Liga to four games when they host Leganes at their Estadio Vicente Calderon.

They currently sit down in 18th place but only 4 of their opening 10 games have been at home. They are much stronger on their own patch and 7 of their 8 points so far have come in front of their own fans. That includes a shock win over Barcelona and theyve only lost 1 of their last 6 at home in all competitions so this wont be plain sailing for Atleti.

Therefore any alterations shouldnt throw Atleti off their course. Theyve built up some positive momentum with 4 straight wins to nil in all competitions and are very much looking more like the Atleti of old. Diego Simeone doesnt tend to rotate quite as much as some coaches on the eve of big games and he does have a fair deal of strength in depth now in any case.

Costa currently plays for Chelsea and he impressed in the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign with the Stamford Bridge outfit, scoring 20 goals in the English top flight. Diego Costa began his senior career at Braga and he used to play for the likes of Penafiel, Celta Vigo, Albacete, Real Valladolid, Rayo Vallecano and Atletico Madrid in the past as well. However, he was struggling to find his best form in the 2015/2016 campaign and it is no surprise he netted just 12 goals for Chelsea in the national championship.

Los Pepineros aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Osasuna, but they are seen as underdogs in Sundays football match against the fellow capital club. Leganes and Atletico Madrid face each other in a small Madrid derby at Estadio Municipal de Butarque. Leganes are tough to beat at home, but seeing that Atletico Madrid produced a fine performance in a 1-0 win over Getafe, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
