LaLiga is just around the corner, it starts next weekend, and our team are finishing the preparation for next Saturday’s inaugural fixture against Girona at Montilivi with the match against Leganés at Butarque (10:30).
Diego Pablo Simeone has been able to draw conclusions from the five previous games and in this last one will have another good touchstone playing against another First division team such as Leganés. Our team has won the Audi Cup in Munich after defeating Naples (2-1) and tying against Liverpool (1-1) whom they beat in the penalty shootout (4-5). There was also a goalless tie against Toluca in Mexico and a win in England against Brighton (2-3). The last match at the Coliseum, against Getafe, ended in a draw (0-0).
For its part, Leganés has had a pre-season with wins against Fuenlabrada (0-1), Real Madrid realizado (0-2) and Talavera (0-2), tying against Alavés (1-1), although they won in the penalty shootouts and took home the XXXVIII Villa de Leganés Trophy, having their only defeat so far at Medina de Rioseco against Valladolid (1-0).
