Unbeaten in their last five La Liga competitions, Atletico Madrid will be looking to get the three points when they host Leganes at the Vicente Calderon Stadium in the 21st round of the Spanish top flight.
A Must Win For Atletico
The hosts have been inconsistent since the start of the season. The team have been away from the title race but not too far away as well. They got back their form in recent weeks as they are unbeaten in their last five games in La Liga. Atletico Madrid have collected a total of 11 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Deportivo Alaves away from home where they drew 0-0.
Atletico Madrid are currently sitting in the 4th place in the league table. They have 36 points from 10 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses. The team scored 34 goals and conceded 16 since the start of the season.
Gabi returns from suspension for the home side and should slot into the middle of midfield alongside Saul. Jose Maria Gimenez is sidelined due to injury, which should see Stefan Savic get consecutive starts at centre-back for Atletico.
The Visitors Are Struggling
The visitors are in a much more difficult situation at the moment compared to the hosts. The team have failed to win in any of their last five game in the Spanish top division. Leganes have collected a total of 3 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in la liga. Their last league match was against Celta de Vigo at home where they lost 2-0.
Leganes are currently sitting in the 17th place in the league table. They have 18 points from 4 wins, 6 draws and 10 losses. They have scored 15 goals and conceded 33 since the start of the season.
Key man Gabriel is suspended for the away side, which should see Leganes change shape to accommodate for his absence.
Head To Head
The last game between the two teams was in August 2016 in the reverse fixture when the game finished goalless.
