Atlético Madrid is a team with plenty on their minds, as they head into the weekend’s Madrid derby match against the fan-favorite “Cucumber Growers” from the city’s outskirts, CD Leganés. Owning a monumental 2-0 lead over Italian champions Juventus after one leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 eliminator, as the BBC reported, the Atléti must face the Cristiano Ronaldo-led side again on Tuesday. But first, they need to secure a win in the derby match to keep their long-shot, but not out-of-reach, La Liga title hopes alive when they host Leganés in a match that will live stream from the Wanda.

With the Champions League final also set to be played at the Wanda, Atlético Madrid have an added motivation to get there. At the same time, sitting seven points behind FC Barcelona, per Sky Sports, Atlético must win to keep pace or even close to within four points of the top, in the unlikely event that the defending champions lose later on Saturday.
The second-place side will have to do it against their Madrid rivals without Captain Diego Godin, who will sit out with a thigh strain in hopes that he will be ready to take on Juventus just three days later, according to Fox Sports.
