Atletico Madrid vs Leganes Match Preview
Atletico Madrid host Leganes for their Matchday 27 clash in great shape after connecting a four-match winning streak across competitions since mid-February, including a great Champions League win over Juventus (2-0) and La Liga points against Rayo Vallecano (0-1), Villarreal (2-0), and Real Sociedad (0-2).
Atleti have kept clean sheets on all of those occasions and Diego Simeone surely has a lot to be happy about, as his men now look to retain consistency ahead of the trip to Italy – regularly netting numbers of goals and keeping it together at the back all along the way.
Leganes have, on the other hand, beaten Levante (1-0) with a single goal from Oscar Rodriguez last week and returned to the winning ways after a loss to Real Sociedad (3-0) and a 1-1 draw against Valencia seen beforehand. They’ve bagged three wins and two draws in last six outings but struggles on the road will prove more worrying for Mauricio Pellegrino.
Lega have bagged just one win on the road since mid-December, where they beat Rayo Vallecano (1-2) but suffered losses to Espanyol (1-0), Real Madrid (3-0), Barcelona (3-1), and already mentioned Sociedad – failing to even find the net in four of the last six trips.
We will now back Atletico Madrid to capitalize on such form on the rivals’ end and bag a win typical for them lately, as we go for a Home win to Nil at an enticing Evens with bet365 – which has been rated a solid approach to the fixture by many in the know.
