ATL vs LEG Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

Atletico Madrid face a difficult test away from home as they make a short trip to the outskirts of Madrid to take on Leganes in La Liga.

The Los Rojiblancos made a winning start to the new season after beating Getafe 1-0 in a closely fought game at Wanda Metropolitano. Though, Diego Simeone must be happy with the job, especially from the defenders, who didn’t let the visitors take a shot on their goal.

While Leganes went down 1-0 to the newly-promoted side Osasuna in their opening game of the season.

The La Liga match will be played between Leganes and Atletico Madrid at Butarque, in Madrid, Spain. The ground has a capacity of 12,450.

  • While Oscar Rodriguez Arnaiz’s red card in the 93rd minute means, he will be suspended for the game.

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • Roberto Rosales is in contention to start at right wing-back ahead of Marc Navarro.

Leganes Probable XI:

Cuellar (GK), Silva, Bustinza, Tarin, Siovas, Rosales, Mesa, Perez, Recio, En-Nesyri, Braithwaite

  • Angel Correa is serving a suspension as well for the away side.
  • Sime Vrsaljko and Diego Costa remain on the sidelines, while Stefan Savic remains a doubt.

Possible ins or outs of this game:

  • Simeone could shoehorn Mario Hermoso at left-back, due to the lack of a like-for-like replacement for the suspended Lodi.
  • Felipe could make his full debut for the visitors too, owing to Stefan Savic picking up a knock.
  • If Savic is not fit, expect Felipe to make his full competitive debut for Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid Probable XI:

Likely to score:

  • For Leganes: Youssef En-Neysri, Martin Braithwaite

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Alvaro Morata: The 26-year-old Spanish has been a hot-and-miss at whichever club he has played so far in his career. But there’s no denying that the former Juventus, Chelsea and Real Madrid star has the talent to be one of the world’s best.

Last season:

  • Games: 35
  • Goals: 13
  • Assists: 01

Joao Felix: Impressed during his competitive debut for Atletico Madrid. Big things are certainly expected from him, as the world looks at him as the best talent to come out of Portugal after the one-and-only Cristiano Ronaldo.

Last season:

  • Games: 32
  • Goals: 18
  • Assists: 08

Thomas Partey: Atletico’s brilliant midfielder has the ability to dictate the proceedings in the centre of the field. Due to his tenacity and the tireless approach, the 26-year-old Ghanian will surely have a lot of touches.

Strength:

  • tackling
  • Game reading ability
  • Passing
  • Shooting

Suggested combination:

Match will be updated on India Fantasy Premium Portal.


ATL vs LEG Dream11 potential winner:
Atletico Madrid are too good for Leganes. We back an away win for the visitors.
