Our match prediction:
Leganes did remarkably well to upset Celta Vigo in the opening match of the season. The newcomers proved their worth in the 1-0 win over Os Celeste, but it has to be noted that the Galicians missed several clear-cut chances to score during the match. Anyhow, Leganes picked up all three points from the game and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they host Atletico Madrid at their Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Saturday. Diego Simeone’s men were on the verge of beating Alaves in their opener, but the visitors scored a late equaliser and eventually shared the spoils with los Rojiblancos. Antoine Griezmann was sorely missed against Alaves, but the good news for the fans is that summer signing Kevin Gameiro scored on his Atletico Madrid debut. Atletico Madrid are desperate to record their first win of the season and we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match.
Highligted Player (Miguel Guerrero):
Born in Toledo, Spain on 12 July, 1990, Miguel Angel Guerrero started his senior career at Albacete. He played just two matches for Albacete, but he made no less than 60 appearances for the B team between 2009 and 2011. In 2011 he joined Sporting Gijon B, but he started playing for the first team soon. On 19 August, 2012 Guerrero made his debut for the Asturians in Segunda Division, but he played no moer than 25 minutes in a 2-0 loss to Numancia. Five months later he scored his first goal for Sporting Gijon in a local derby against Real Oviedo. After scoring 16 goals in 89 appearances for the club between 2012 and 2016, the Spanish attacker signed a two-year deal with Leganes, newly promoted to the Spanish top flight. Guerrero has a contract with Leganes which expires on 30 June, 2018. During his youth career he played for the likes of Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Getafe, Toledo and Rayo Vallecano.
Highlighted Team (Atletico Madrid):
Atletico Madrid are a Spanish team that plays in Primera Division (La Liga). Los Rojiblancos or los Colchoneros play their home matches at Estadio Vicente Calderon, which holds up to 54,960 spectators. Atletico Madrid have won 10 La Liga titles, but they have yet to lift the European Cup (Champions League) trophy. Los Rojblancos have won 10 Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) trophies and it has to be noted that they defeated their bitter local rivals Real Madrid in the 2012/2013 Spanish Cup final. The rivalry between the two capital clubs is pretty big and El Madrileno is regarded as one of the most exciting derbies in the world football. Atletico Madrid played two Champions League finals under Diego Simeone, but they failed to beat Real Madrid in the title games (2013/2014 and 2015/2016). However, the Argentine tactician helped Atletico Madrid win the La Liga trophy in 2014 and, no doubt, he is one of the most successful coaches in the history of the capital club.
