Atletico Madrid had a little wobble in their last league outing, slipping to a defeat. That leaves them under a little bit of pressure in what is shaping up to be a good race for a top-four finish this season in La Liga.

They will be looking to secure a comfortable three points on home soil on Sunday as they play host to Leganes. The visitors are locked inside of the relegation zone and wouldn’t get out even with three points from this fixture.

Atletico can drive home a comfortable success

Atletico Madrid fell to a 2-0 away loss at Eibar last weekend. Considering that Eibar are sat in 16th spot in the table currently, that was some upset. Atleti also lost in midweek in the Copa del Rey against third-tier side Cultural Leonese. Atletico didn’t have their absolute strongest side out, but the likes of Joao Felix, Saul Niguez, Vitolo and Angel Correa were all in the starting line up. It wasn’t a weak starting eleven, let’s put it that way.

The home form of Atletico in La Liga this season is good at W6 D3 L1. The only visitors to the Metropolitano who have left with a win is Barcelona. Atletico have won their last two league home games and four of their last five there (L1). It would be a hefty upset if they lost this. Atletico have only shipped the six goals in their ten home fixtures this season, taking a clean sheet in half of their home games.

(odds taken 21:30 GMT, Friday 24th January)

Just 30% of Atletico’s home games have made it over 2.5 goals. Just to back up the likelihood of that happening again, nine of the last ten meetings in the league between these two have ended under the goal line.

Atleti have only conceded in one of their last eight games against Legnaes in all competitions. With this season’s loss against Barcelona being their only home league defeat in their last 17 La Liga fixtures, Diego Simeone’s men should collect a win here and shake off a three-match winless streak in all competitions (D1 L2).

 

Struggling Leganes unlikely to net

Leganes are without a win in their last 10 away games in La Liga. from their travels, they have posted a D4 L5 record this season. From the start of the season through to the start of December last year, Leganes won one league fixture only.

They have improved to a W2 D2 L1 record in their last five games played. However, they did go down heavily in a 3-0 loss at home against Getafe last weekend.

It leaves Leganes second from bottom in the Spanish top flight and four points from safety. Sticking the ball in the back of the net has been problematic for them this season, particularly away from home where they have scored six goals in ten games.

They have conceded at an average of 1.8 goals per away game and have yet to record a clean sheet on their travels. Just as another indicator of which way this will go, Leganes have visited three of the current top five this season and have lost them all to nil.

Leganes have lost their previous three visits to Atletico. But then after such a rough season, with only one defeat in their last eight competitive games, there has been some improvement under former Atletico boss Javier Aguirre, who took over at the start of November last year. Since he has been in charge Leganes have gone W4 D4 L3 in all competitions.

 

Atletico Madrid vs Leganes Betting Advice

While Leganes have been going through a bit of improvement, it’s not likely going to be enough to see them avoid defeat at Atletico on Sunday. They just don’t have the goals in them to really threaten such a good defensive side.

 

Key Facts – Atletico Madrid vs Leganes Betting Tip

  • Atletico Madrid are unbeaten in 16 of their last 17 home games
  • Atletico Madrid have conceded once in 8 games against Leganes
  • Leganes are winless on the road this season

 

Leganes have only netted in one of their previous seven La Liga meetings with Atletico and that goal came at home against them back in 2018. Atletico will be happy to get back to a few home comforts in this one having played three straight road games. The home win to nil is a good proposition.
