Atletico Madrid vs Leganes
Atletico Madrid host Leganes in the 26th round of La Liga.
Atletico will be so confident right now after the shocking result they got as visitors to Sevilla during the last round. I can't remember a team which succeeded to lead 5:0 at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, moreover we saw what difficulties had Man. United a few days ago. Griezmann looked like he finally found his best form and scored a hattrick, so Atletico will rely a lot on him till the end of the season. In fact Atletico Madrid have 7 wins in a row during all of the competitions and the possibility to have an end here is very low. The hosts know that winning the title will be very hard task, but securing the 2nd place is absolutely possible after their Madrid rival got wrong yesterday against Espanyol. Only Savic and Hernandez are doubful for the 2nd placed team in La Liga and they may even make some rotations against Leganes, but the starting line-up will be pretty solid for sure.
Leganes have a slow falling in their form after they eliminated Real Madrid in Copa del Rey. Asier Garitano's team looked amazingly tired after the Cup matches and maybe that's the reason they used to make so many rotations during the last rounds. The results were not the best one with a big row of losses until they got a point(goalless draw) last round against maybe the worst visitors in the league- Las Palmas. That doesn't speak good about the precision in the final third of their forwards. In fact Leganes have only one goal during their last 6 games and against Atletico which team have one of the best defense not only in Spain, but in Europe, I don't think they will have more than 2-3 chances for a goal at Wanda Metropolitano. They also have a lot of problems with their starting line-up. Szymanowski continues to be injured, while Ruben Perez and Dimitrios Siovas are suspended. To make the things even worse their main forward Claudio Beauvue is doubtful together with Darko Brasanac.
During the first half of the season they made a goalless draw and Atletico will be motivated to win this one for sure, because two mistakes against such a team won't speak good about their attack power. If we saw last season, it's interesting that they made 0:0 during the 1st part of the season at Leganes stadium, while in the 2nd part of the season Atletico won 2:0 at home. The possibility this one to happen again with the same results is very high and I'm going with Atletico to win comfortably here. 3:0 or 2:0 are the highly expected results for me and I will go with Atletico -1.5 AH.
