Atletico Madrid are a new-look team this season
Atletico Madrid are a new-look team this season

Atletico Madrid head to their bogey ground at Leganes, somewhere they haven't won for three years running, as they look to earn a second win of the La Liga season.

Under Mauricio Pellegrino, Leganes are a team who like to defend sturdily and don't afford opponents like Atletico space to break.

Diego Simeone is set to stick with his new-look team which includes former Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier, as well as the potent strike pairing of Joao Felix and Alvaro Morata. Follow it live:

Prediction?

Leganes 0-3 Atletico Madrid. This new-look Atletico side look well-drilled with touches or real quality and they will be too good today.

What time does it start?

The match kicks off at 6pm BST (5pm local time).

There's been much talk ahead of the new season about Atletico Madrid. The signing of Joao Felix and some impressive pre-season displays hinted at a new look team, a move away from the functional, defence-based Atletico sides of recent years to something more expansive, more exciting.

But the opening game of the campaign was reassuringly familiar. Diego Simeone's side, as they so often do, won 1-0, at home against Getafe, with a winning goal from Alvaro Morata. There was an impressive debut for Kieran Trippier, too.

Atletico head to Leganes tonight as heavy favourites, looking to make it two from two.

Leganes 0-0 Atletico

3 minutes

Chance! Leganes lose the ball in their own half and Lemar slides a pass into Koke. He sets up Morata, whose first time effort goes just wide of the far post.

Leganes 0-0 Atletico

6 minutes

Atletico, in their all black away strip, have been completely dominant so far. They've had all of the possession and will feel they should be ahead. But Leganes were amongst the most disciplined, defensively sound sides in La Liga last season, so they may prove difficult to break down.

Leganes 0-0 Atletico

10 minutes

An Atletico corner is helped on by Savic, before Koke attempts an audacious volley on the edge of the box. Leganes get the ball clear, though.
