    On Sunday evening, Leganes host Atletico Madrid at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque, as the visitors look to make it two wins out of two in La Liga this season.

    Leganes started this season by suffering a 1-0 home defeat against Osasuna. Atletico kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 win in a Madrid-derby against Getafe.

    Despite positive results in pre-season, Leganes seem to have continued their poor form of last season in the current campaign. The home side has now lost three straight games in the top-flight.

    They have also won just one of the last nine matches in the Spanish top-flight. An improvement in form is certainly needed if they are to avoid a relegation battle.

    A poor recent record on home soil in La Liga has not helped their cause, as they have failed to win in their last five league games at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque.

    Leganes have also struggled to find the net of late on home soil in the Spanish top-flight, scoring just two goals in their last seven home matches, while failing to score in five matches in that run.

    Diego Simeone’s new look Atletico Madrid will be keen to make a positive start to the new La Liga campaign. The opening day victory in the Spanish top-flight ended a three-game winless run for the visitors in La Liga.

    The win over Getafe was another low-scoring Atletico Madrid game, as seven of their last ten La Liga matches have produced under 2.5 goals.

    Los Rojiblancos have a poor recent away record in La Liga, winning just two of their last six league games on their travels while suffering three defeats in the process.

    Rather uncharacteristically Atletico have also conceded at least two goals in four of their last six La Liga games away from the capital.

    Forebet predicts that Atletico will improve their poor recent away record by recording a victory in a low-scoring clash.
