Leganes vs Atletico Madrid for the Spanish La Liga championship match on Sunday at Butarque Municipal Stadium.
Next Sunday, 25th August 2019, Leganes and Atletico Madrid face each other for a game for matchday 2 of La Liga (Spain). The match has kick-off at 18:00 at Butarque Municipal Stadium (Leganes).
Atletico had a good start, winning without conceding. They played against Getafe, who competed for the last place in the Champions League until the final game last season.
Courtesy of a goal by Alvaro Morata, the team recorded a 1-0 home win to announce soon their intention to play for the league title.
Given the games of the two opponents, Barcelona and Real Madrid, this is an excellent opportunity for the squad to go after glory.
The next matchday gives them a great chance of adding two wins in the championship as they are facing Leganes, who finished a modest 13th place in the table, unlike their opponents, who finished as runners-up.
Besides, the lower level team just lost, and embarrassingly against newly-promoted Osasuna, and to worse things the game was at home too.
Diego Simeone’s boys are slowly maturing, and it’s a daunting prospect for the faithful of Europe competitions.
Clashes between the two teams
The last four wins went to Atletico.
Leganes haven’t scored in eight of their eleven previous games.
The last six matches at this venue have seen the hosts score just two goals in total.
Atletico Madrid, as usual, was one of the best teams in the competition last time, and even finished higher than the mighty Los Blancos.
For sure, the previous runners-up will go for a victory, and as always, their defence can be counted on to do a spectacular job.
