23 January 2020
Sunday 26 January
Wanda Metripolitano - La Liga
Atletico Madrid are looking for a return to winning ways after losing to Eibar, with Leganes in deep relegation trouble. The visitors are four points adrift of safety, second-bottom of the table.
Atletico Madrid are unbeaten in all seven La Liga meetings with Leganes, including a 1-0 win at the Coliseum Afonso Perez earlier this season.
Diego Simeone has no fresh injury worries to contend with ahead of the short trip across the capital, with Diego Costa, Koke and Kieran Trippier all still sidelined through injury.
Leganes will be without defender Rodrigo Tarin due to injury, bur Roque Mesashould be fit to play.
Atletico Madrid vs. Leganes Preview and Predictions
Atletico Madrid have now slipped to eight points behind rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid, following last weekend’s defeat at Eibar. However, Simeone’s side have been excellent at home so far this season, loosing just once, to league leaders Barcelona.
Leganes have edged themselves closer to La Liga safety with some positive results in recent weeks. Javier Aguirre’s side have lost just one of their last five league games as they look to battle against relegation.
Despite their slip up in the Basque country, the hosts should have more than enough to win, with a home victory priced at 1.45.
Los Rojiblancos are not known as a high scoring team and they have only scored more than two goals in a game on one occasion in their last 11 matches. With that in mind an Atletico Madrid win with under 2.5 goals scored comes in a price of 1.7.
Atletico Madrid to win 1-0 at 4.85
Simeone’s side will only be concerned with points this weekend, and the hosts need to get back to winning ways if they want to challenge their rivals for the La Liga title.
Alvaro Morata to score any time at 1.25
The Spanish international is Atletico Madrid’s top scorer so far this season with seven goals in La Liga.
