Leganes, who were promoted to La Liga this season, managed to grab a historic first victory during the club’s first ever match in the Spanish top flight competitions with a 1–0 win over Celta de Vigo on the road at the Estadio Municipal de Balaídos on Monday, courtesy of defender Victor Diaz’s 75th minute goal. The single goal was enough for Leganes to turn back a tough challenge from Os Célticos, who seemed like they are still getting used to life without forward Nolito.
Meantime, Atletico Madrid started off their domestic campaign this season with a discouraging 1–1 draw with another novice, Deportivo Alaves, at their home ground of Vicente Calderón Stadium last Sunday. The game was goalless for the full 90 minutes until both sides netted a couple of injury time goals as the match ended in a stalemate. Argentinian signing Nico Gaitan could make his full debut after his transfer from Benfica. French starlet Antoine Griezmann is accessible again after serving a suspension.
