Atlético de Madrid went out decided to win the game from the opening whistle and controlled Leganés at all times. The only thing missing was getting to the goal of Serantes with more definition, but the team from Leganés played closed off and on their field at all times. However, the two chances of the match were by our team. The first was from Saúl, in a great combination, but saved by Mantovani on the edge of the 6-yard box. And the clearest was a shot by Griezmann on 38 minutes barely saved by the home keeper.
After the half-time, the match went on in the same way, in which the match was played on the field of Leganés and with a new clear opportunity for Gameiro which was again saved by Serantes. After that, the home team saw Oblak up close in a header from Guerrero, but it was the only play saved by the Slovenian. The match was getting away as the minutes went by and the chances were not clear. Fernando Torres, who made his debut with the red and white 15 years ago against this team, but at the Calderón, suffered a penalty in the final stretch but the called an offside. And Fernando was close on 90 minutes, but his header was saved by the goalkeeper. In the end, a tie that is not enough for how the game was played.
