Atletico – Leganes, La Liga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ATLETICO - LEGANES
Atletico are calm for their place in top 4 this season and currently have some chances on paper even for the title, although it seems quite unrealistic for Barcelona to afford such a relaxation. It is clear that the goal for Atletico will be a good performance in the Champions League and let’s not forget that the final this year in this tournament will be at their stadium. Next week, against Juventus, they are going to have a hard time, so there will have to save some energy here, and we have no doubts about this.
Leganes can be a great host with a lot of motivation to win, but they are relatively weak guest. In most of the games, Leganes get draws, because their attack does not work well. They do not count on it so much and so they only have 2 wins as a guest during the season. Leganes’ goal is to fight to break into top 7 this season. We think they will go for the point against Atletico, because hardly anyone believes they can win in Madrid.
Our prediction here is Under 2.5 goals at 1.60 and the reasons for this are a few. First, the main thing is that we expect the two teams’ approach to be quite cautious. It is best for the guests to keep the draw as long as possible, while for the hosts want a minimal win without much energy spent. This in most cases means 1-0. Apart from the loss of Real M, Atletico has only allowed 4 goals as host in other matches in La Liga. Leganes didn’t score a goal in 7 away games this season. No logic for a game with many goals here.
- 6 of the last 7 matches between the two teams ended with less than 2.5 goals
