Atletico Madrid will be heading towards the Estadio Municipal de Butarque to face CD Leganes following a narrow 1-0 success against the lower league side Sant Andreu in Cope del Rey.
With a record of two wins, two draws, and six losses, Leganes currently reside in the relegation zone with a 1-point deficit to Villarreal who are safe for now. Los Pepineros have scored just two goals in the previous four La Liga meetings, having notched a total of eight after the opening ten fixtures, which makes them the 3rd-worst goalscoring crew in the Spanish top flight. Before a 1-0 triumph over Rayo Vallecano, Mauricio Pellegrino’s players have failed to keep a clean sheet in three successive home matches, missing to score once in the process. A 50% of Leganes’ league clashes at home have ended with more than two goals, while 40% of their overall outings produced three or more goals.
On the other hand, Los Colchoneros are currently tied for 4th place with a 2-point deficit to the leaders Barcelona, as they’ve won just five out of ten league encounters so far. With only five goals conceded so far, Los Rojiblancos have the best defensive record in La Liga, having kept a clean sheet on six occasions; more than any other side in the Spanish top flight. However, Diego Simeone’s principal problem concerns his team’s attacking displays, as Atletico scored an average of 1.2 goals per match, having failed to notch a goal twice since the start of the season, both times on the road. Moreover, Los Indios have won just one out of five away meetings, playing out three draws while losing once in the process.
