Leganes vs Atletico Madrid – Primera Division.
Estadio Municipal de Butarque, Leganes – 27 August, 21:15.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Leganes have fought their way to Spain Primera Division for the first time in their history and already managed to cause big mess in the first round. This fairly speaking unknown squad was playing against Celta Vigo last week and was considered as total underdogs. However, they have shocked everyone and won that duel 1 – 0 thanks to the goal of Victor Diaz, who will be remembered as the first goal scorer in history for Leganes. The second round could potentially bring another big surprise. Leganes are hosting the runners – up from the last season, team Atletico Madrid and we should witness one very interesting duel.
The first round has brought another surprise, this time for Diego Simeone and his squad. They were completely dominating the match against Deportivo Alaves at Vicente Calderon last week, had more than 20 shots but still failed to achieve first season victory. That duel had unbelievable finish. First Gameiro granted the lead for the hosts, but Manu Garcia has shocked the home crowd with an equalizer in the 95th minute. There is no doubt that Atleti will be looking for some redemption against Leganes. The bookies are giving them very decent chance to achieve it.
Away victory is currently backed up with 8/15 rate, which is definitely a bit odd for matches in Primera Division which don’t include Real Madrid or Barcelona. Chances for Leganes to win the second match in a row are very low 15/2, but we have seen a lot of miracles in top European leagues recently.
It is very interesting to mention that the last duel between these two sides was played in 2002. Back then, both were participating in Segunda. Leganes have won the match 2 – 0.
