La Liga Latest (Leganes): Pellegrino’s side continue to grow

Mauricio Pellegrino has discussed his side’s draw with Getafe on Friday evening, saying his his players are continuing to grow.

“It may be that we deserve more because of the number of chances we generated, ” he told reporters. “But I have already said it, football is about efficiency and I am happy with what we did. The team is growing and we are positive.

“I have to congratulate our fans, they created a great atmosphere, they made a great experience.

“We are a small team but we have a big dream. It is the best league in the world, we dream of continuing to grow.”

Honours even on Friday night at Butarque

The first of the La Liga’s weekend fixtures began with Leganes hosting Jose Bordalas’ side in a Madrid derby and it did not fail to entertain.

The visitors had the larger dominance in the first period and it was Leandro Cabrera who opened the scoring in the 39th minute with a well taken header.

The home side changed their approach in the second period and became more attacking, taking over the possession stats which ended 67% in their favour at the 90 minute mark.

And, their change in style and play ended in success when Cameroon defender Allan Nyom got himself a rare goal, netting the equalizer inside the area just after the hour mark.

The game then filtered out to a draw, despite the home side continuing to knock on the door.

There was one last bit of action to discuss though as Leganes midfielder Ruben Perez was sent off three minutes into injury time.

Bustinza, Cuéllar and Raúl García all set to leave in January

Leganes are set to lose Unai Bustinza, Pichu Cuellar and Raul Garcia on a free next summer but the club are attempting to sell the trio on in January.

Whilst the club seemed settled to allow all three to leave for free, they now believe that they could get a smaller figure in January and will actively attempt to put them on the market come January 1st.
