Atletico Madrid will look to close the gap at the top of the La Liga table when they travel to the Estadio Municipal de Butarque to face Leganes on Saturday at lunchtime. Leganes had an overwhelming ball possession and plenty of goal attempts, but they still lost 2-0 on the road at Levante last Saturday. On the flip side, Atletico Madrid won 2-0 at home against Real Sociedad thanks to goals from Diego Godin and Filipe Luis. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Leganes have been poor in La Liga over the past two months, having won just two of their last nine fixtures. They were on a two-game unbeaten streak in the league prior to their 2-0 away loss at Levante at the weekend. The good news is that Leganes have only lost once on home soil throughout this La Liga campaign and are currently on a two-game winning streak.
Atletico Madrid, on the contrary, have only lost once in their last ten games across all competitions. That sole defeat came at the hands of Borussia Dortmund in their Champions League tie last week. Los Colchoneros are currently on a seven-game unbeaten run in La Liga, winning four in the process. Away from home, Atletico Madrid are undefeated in their last three league trips.
This game should be a formality for Atletico Madrid and we find good value on them in this tie. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Atletico Madrid to win at odds 1.66.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Each of Leganes’ last four games in La Liga have seen few than three goals. They have one of the worst attacking records in the division with just eight goals scored in ten rounds. On the other hand, Atletico Madrid hold the best defensive record in the league, having conceded just five goals so far this season. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals at odds 1.53.

First Goalscorer odds
Atletico Madrid are lacking firepower at the moment, while Antoine Griezmann hasn’t enjoyed such a prolific start to the season. However, he is our best shot here and we fancy him to add more goals to his current tally. Our first goalscorer prediction is Antoine Griezmann at odds 4.33.
