REMEMBER Terry Gibson? Well, we've signed him and while he won't be kicking a football he'll be looking into his crystal ball and bringing us his best Spanish tips every week.
The ex-Spurs, Coventry and Manchester United striker is probably best remembered for his time as part of the infamous Wimbledon Crazy Gang side of the late 80s and early 90s. Now an expert in all things La Liga he works as a pundit and co-commentator on Sky Sports’ Spanish football coverage and is a contributor to unibet.
Terry begins his look at the weekend La Liga action with a preview of Atletico's trip to fellow Madrid side Leganes.
Leganes v Atletico Madrid (Saturday 7.45pm)
This will be a tough game indeed for Atletico Madrid. After midweek’s home defeat to Chelsea it is critical they bounce back immediately.
If you saw the game against Chelsea it is clear as to why Diego Simeone was so keen to resign Diego Costa. They clearly lacked a physical, focal point in attack to trouble the defence of Antonio Conte's team and their attempts at intricate attacking play were easily snuffed out by the back three and wing backs of Chelsea.
Antoine Griezmann will certainly be helped by the arrival of Costa in January but until then the onus and responsibility is firmly on the Frenchman to lead the line and to provide goals.
Leganés have gotten off to a great start with three wins and a draw to open the season. However, the chances of this being a high scoring thriller are minimal.
Leganés have scored just five goals in six games but have only conceded three and they currently lie in sixth position. In my opinion because of their lack of goalscoring prowess, I still believe, despite the encouraging start, that they will still be concerned with the bottom of the league rather than the top half.
Survival again this season will be success for Asier Garitano. Therefore, I'm going to go for the narrowest of wins for Atletico out of respect for the defensive attributes of Leganés.
Atletico are averaging two goals a game and are in second position, they too are finding goals hard to come by and I am going to go for a 1-0 away victory with Griezmann getting the only goal of the game.
- Correct score: Leganes 0, Atletico 1 (4-1, Unibet)
- First scorer: Griezmann (3-1, Unibet)
- Safe bet: Under 2.5 goals (1-2, Unibet)
