FULL TIME: Leganes 0-1 Atletico Madrid
Two games, two 1-0 wins... wasn't this supposed to be a different sort of Atletico Madrid team? This was a tough test for Simeone's side and it wasn't always clear that they would get the three points. Vitolo came off the bench to make the decisive blow and Atleti head to the top of La Liga with six points from six.
- Yellow cardKokeAtlético Madrid
It's just yellow card after yellow card in these dying moments. Koke is booked for kicking the ball away.
- Yellow cardYoussef En-NesyriCD Leganés
And now En-Nesyri is shown a yellow card for a bad tackle on Gimenez. This game might be over now.
- OffThomas LemarAtlético Madrid
- OnFelipeAtlético Madrid
It's one last change from Atletico Madrid and Lemar is replaced by Felipe.
This result would put Atletico Madrid top of the pile in La Liga after two games. Barcelona and Real Madrid have already dropped points. This could be quite the title race.
Time is running out for Leganes if they are to snatch something from this match. They haven't really created much in the way of goalscoring opportunities. That has to change.
- Yellow cardVitoloAtlético Madrid
Vitolo is the latest player to be shown a yellow card. Atletico are now trying to slow this game down.
Felix is still a teenager, but he's giving Morata (the more senior of the two teammates) a bit of a glare after that last opportunity. Morata really should have squared it rather than going himself.
Chance for Morata! The Atletico Madrid forward was played in behind the Leganes defence by Koke, he had the option to square for Felix in the middle, but he takes on the shot himself and sees his effort saved by Soriano.
- Yellow cardMarcos LlorenteAtlético Madrid
Llorente is shown a yellow card. He's not long been on the pitch, but he's been booked.
- OffJavi ErasoCD Leganés
- OnJavier AvilésCD Leganés
A third and final change for Leganes. Keep in mind that they had to make a change in the first half due to injury.
Leganes are throwing the dice here. Pellegrino is now playing with three forwards. The home side have 10 minutes to find an equaliser to claim something from this match.
We were told to expect a different sort of Atletico Madrid this season. That they would play a more open and expansive game. Well, they're on course for back-to-back 1-0 wins to start the season.
- OffKenneth OmeruoCD Leganés
- OnJosé ArnáizCD Leganés
Pellegrino makes a change and throws on a forward for the final 10 minutes of this match. Arnaiz is on.
Cooling break! We're going to have another stop in play here to allow both sets of players to take on liquids. As we said earlier, it is very warm in and around the Spanish capital tonight.
Trippier's pass over the top in the lead up to the goal was critical in creating the space for Felix and Vitolo to open up the Leganes defence. This has been another good performance.
- Yellow cardJonathan SilvaCD Leganés
Silva enters the referee's book for going through the back of Felix just moments after the goal.
There was a feeling that this match could go either way and it's Atletico Madrid who have found the breakthrough. The tactical change from Simeone has paid off. He deserves credit.
- GoalVitoloAtlético Madrid
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Leganes 0 Atletico Madrid 1 (71 mins - Vitolo). It has taken 71 minutes, but Atletico Madrid have finally made the breakthrough at Butarque! The pass was made by Felix, he released Vitolo inside the Leganes penalty area and the substitute made no mistake in finishing convincingly into the back of the net with a low finish.
- OffThomas ParteyAtlético Madrid
- OnMarcos LlorenteAtlético Madrid
Simeone makes another change and Llorente comes on for Thomas, who was on a yellow card.
Atleti open at the back! The cross was played to the back post, where Rosales was completely free. The flag was up for offside, but Saul had no idea that the Leganes player was there.
There are 25 minutes left of this game to play and everything is still up for grabs. Leganes seem to have clicked that they can win this match. They are pressing in this second half.
That change from Simeone means that Saul will now be moved back to the left back position. Keep in mind that Saul has previously spoken about how he doesn't like playing there.
- Yellow cardThomas ParteyAtlético Madrid
Thomas is the latest player to enter the referee's book. Frustrations boiling over.
- OffMario HermosoAtlético Madrid
- OnVitoloAtlético Madrid
Simeone makes his first change of the match and Vitolo comes on for Hermoso.
Is this the new Atletico Madrid we were told to expect this season? They are creating chances in this second half, but they are coming as a result of being more open in their approach.
Oblak makes the save! It's another chance for Leganes, who are starting to play a more open game here. The ball fell to Eraso after a poor pass form Mesa, but Oblak stops the hosts from taking the lead.
Atleti hit the post! This game has now exploded into life. Rosales shows bravery to perform a diving header to prevent Saul from knocking home a cross, but the ball bounces back off a player and off his own post!
Off the crossbar! That's certainly the closest Leganes have come to opening the scoring, with Silva striking a freekick from the edge of the Atletico Madrid penalty area off the crossbar.
- Yellow cardMario HermosoAtlético Madrid
Hermoso has been pretty solid so far for Atletico, but he enters the book.
Felix is arguably the most exciting teenager in world football, but he should have done better with that opportunity. He tried to take the leather off the ball when he could have placed it.
Big chance for Felix! That could have been the teenager's first La Liga goal! That's the best chance of the game. It was a mistake at the back by Leganes, Koke won the ball at the byline, crossed into the middle, but Felix volleys well over!
That was an opportunity for Leganes to hit out on the counter attack, but the pass was played behind Braithwaite. This is where they have to tighten up their game and do better.
Leganes have made one change off the bench, with Tarin injured in the first half. Simeone, however, still has all three subs still to make, so he can still shuffle the pack.
Leganes win a corner kick in the opening few minutes of the second half, but the set piece delivery is poor. It fails to beat the first man at the near post. Leganes need to make more of these chances.
Atletico Madrid need to up their game in this second half. There has only been four shots between the two teams so far and that tells you what sort of match this has been.

The second half is under way! It's still goalless between Leganes and Atletico Madrid.
What did you make of the first half at Butarque? Does Simeone need to make changes to his Atletico Madrid team to find the breakthrough? How long can Leganes hold on? Tweet me!
- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME: Leganes 0-0 Atletico Madrid. It's been a tight first half at Butarque. Morata had a good opportunity in the first few minutes, but that's the closest we have come to an opening goal.
Simeone will need to come up with some new ideas at the half time interval. Leganes have done a very good job of keeping Atletico Madrid quiet. Not many chances at all.
Just two minutes of stoppage time to be played at the end of the first half.
There's a real duel brewing between En-Nesyri and Savic. They have been at each other for much of this first half and things are starting to bubble to the surface. Fouling each other.
Leganes get in behind Atletico Madrid for the first time in the match. The pass was played in behind Trippier, but the delivery from En-Nesyri was a poor one and the chance is gone.
The pressing game from Leganes when Atletico Madrid move into the final third has been impressive in the first half here. The away side have been limited in and around the box.
Trippier has produced two chances for Morata and there already seems to be something of a relationship between the two players who were rivals at Spurs and Chelsea last season.
Atletico Madrid have been in control for the majority of this first half, but Simeone will surely want to see more of a cutting edge and an element of invention in the second half.
- Yellow cardRoberto RosalesCD Leganés
Rosales is shown a yellow card for a late tackle on Oblak as he cleared from the back.
Another Morata chance! Trippier lifted a pass in behind the Leganes defence for Morata to run on to. He got there first, but seemed unsure whether or not to lift the ball over Soriano.
There's just over 10 minutes until the break and Leganes have so far done a very good job of suffocating Atletico Madrid. That Morata opportunity in the opening few minutes remains the only chance produced.
Cooling break! The referee has stopped play momentarily to allow the two groups of players to take on liquids. It's very hot in Spain this evening. This could take a toll on the teams.
Not the greatest weekend in La Liga...
- OffRodrigo TarinCD Leganés
- OnUnai BustinzaCD Leganés
Leganes have been forced into an early change. Tarin comes off with an injury.
It's clear that Leganes are trying to crowd out Felix whenever the teenager gets the ball. Getafe tried to do something similar last week and that didn't really work out well for them.
Trippier was in behind! Koke played a chipped pass down the right side for his English teammate, but Trippier's low, first-time cross was cut out. He was looking for Morata in the middle.
Atletico Madrid are having no issues moving the ball to the edge of the Leganes penalty area, but they need someone to take more risks and open up space behind their defence.
Nearly 25 minutes have been played at Butarque and Leganes will be pleased with how they have so far restricted the Atletico Madrid attack. The away side have only had one chance.
- Yellow cardJavi ErasoCD Leganés
There's the first yellow card of the match and it's shown to Eraso.
Lemar was Atletico Madrid's big summer signing of last year, but he suffered a difficult first season in La Liga. Simeone still expects big things of Lemar, though. He's a big part of his plans.
It does indeed appear that Lemar is playing in a deep position alongside Koke in the centre of midfield. Simeone is asking the Frenchman to pick up the ball and drive it forward.
Morata has barely touched the ball in these opening 20 minutes. Chances will be at a premium for the Atletico Madrid striker and he must make the most of them when they come. He's already spurned one.
Mesa has only just signed for Leganes, but he will give them something they didn't have last season. His distribution from midfield should help Leganes become more dangerous in attack.
This is a bit better from the home team. Mesa showed great effort to come across and make the challenge. Leganes are starting to grow into the game following a bit of a slow start.
Across the face! Trippier saw the run of Koke in behind the Leganes defence. He played the first-time reverse pass across the six-yard box, but Tarin was on hand to make the clearance.
Real Madrid could only draw at home to Real Valladolid yesterday, so this is a chance for Atletico Madrid to create a three-point gap between them and their rivals after just two games.
Oblak gets his first touch of the ball as the cross comes in from the left wing. Leganes will need to make the most of their opportunities as you'd imagine they won't have that many.
PICTURE: All eyes on this young man.
This is a very interesting set up from Atletico Madrid. I'm still trying to work it out, but it looks like Lemar might be playing in a deeper position in the centre of midfield. Which is... new.
Morata scored the winning goal for Atletico Madrid last weekend, getting on the end of a Trippier cross into the middle. He will be in competition with Costa to start as Atleti's frontman this season.
We were told to expect a new expansive, modern Atletico Madrid team last season. And yet they claimed a hard fought 1-0 home win last week. Does that sound a little bit familiar?
It's been a strong start to the match by Atletico Madrid. They are the ones doing all the attacking. They are the ones dominating the ball and it's Leganes who are having to sit deep.
Trippier has enjoyed a good start to life in Spain...
Many comparisons have been drawn between Felix and an early Ronaldo. You can see it in the way the young Portuguese forward plays. Very reminiscent of his countryman.
Early chance! That was an opportunity for Atletico Madrid to take an early lead. The chance fell to Morata, but the striker sticks his shot wide of the Leganes target. Koke's flick set him free in behind.
Leganes suffered a 1-0 defeat to Osasuna on opening weekend last week. They have started their season with back-to-back home games at Butarque. This one will be tough, though.
Atletico Madrid started their season with a 1-0 win over Getafe at home last weekend. Can they back that result up with another victory here at Butarque? They are certainly favourites.
- 1st Half
The match is under way! It's Leganes against Atletico Madrid in this La Liga fixture.
Okay, here we go. We're about to get started at Butarque. Kick off is just moments away.
The two teams are in the tunnel at Butarque about to walk out on to the pitch. Looks like a good crowd for this one.
A lot is expected of Atletico Madrid. They have spent big and Simeone wants them to challenge for honours.
Not long until kick off at Butarque. This will be another test for New Atletico Madrid. Simeone has put a lot of effort into changing the identity of his team over the summer window.
There is an opportunity for Atletico Madrid to go clear at the top of La Liga with a win today. Real Madrid drew at home to Real Valladolid yesterday and Barcelona lost to Athletic Club on opening weekend.
Trippier keeps his place at right back for Atletico Madrid. He turned in a Man of the Match performance last weekend, providing the assist for what proved to be the winner. He's settled in nicely.
I'm Graham Ruthven and you can catch me ahead of the match at Butarque to let me know your thoughts. Can Leganes cause an upset here? How big a talent is Felix? Tweet me!
Strong lineup! Simeone has picked his strongest lineup for this trip to the suburbs of the capital. Lodi is suspended after being sent off last week. Hermoso starts in his place at left back.
