Leganes – Atletico Madrid

Leganes hosted the newcomer Osasuna in the first round and suffered their first loss for the season. The game didn’t go well for Mauricio Pellegrino’s team, because Osasuna won the game with a goal from Ezequiel Avila just 15 minutes before the end of the game.
Last season Leganes managed to survive, but now they shall expect another tough fight to secure their place in the elite division. The home games are going to be crucial for the team in order to win some precious points, but the start of the season was not as good as they hoped for.
Atletico Madrid on the other hand started the season with a win, although it didn’t come very easy. Los Colchoneros hosted Getafe at the Wanda Metropolitano and won the game with 1-0. The only goal in the game was scored in the 23th minute when Alvaro Morata used an assist from the new signing Kieran Trippier and scored with a good header past David Soria.
This summer was difficult for Atletico, because the club said goodbye to stars like Antoine Griezmann, Diego Godin and Juanfran. Now the manager Diego Simeone will has to find the best way to adapt the new players. The club’s record signing Joao Felix shined during the game with Getafe, showing to everyone that he has what it takes to become a world star.
For the last time Atletico Madrid won the title 2014, so the Los Colchoneros’ fans are eager to see their team triumphing again with the gold medals. But the competition is going to be really big.
