Atletico Madrid - Leganes
Atletico Madrid are in must-win situation. They are currently on the fourth place with 35 points, eight less than Real. Assuming Real will win tonight, it is clear three points are very important. Even more as Getafe could take the last Champions League spot in case Atletico don t win. But there is more - Atletico are winless in their last three competitive matches. Diego Simeone s men lost the Super cup from Real, lost 2:0 to Eibar in La Liga and suffered a painful elimination from Copa del Rey after losing to the minnows Leonesa. So, there are no space for any further mistake.
Leganes lost 3:0 to Eibar in the previous match of Primera. They are at the bottom of the table and they are in very complicated situation. Some improvement is evident under Aguirre, though this will be a hard test. Ruben Perez is banned and that s a handicap.
Atletico won the last two mutual games with Leganes and I expect another victory today.
