Leganés's triumph last Sunday against Celta allowed the pickles to leave the red lantern First division. It was not the only last place stopped by the pickles. Before the meeting, andThe Madrid team was the least top scorer of the major European leagues, but the unusual happened: Lega scored three goals and He made Spal honor so doubtful (last in Italy) and watford (last in England) with nine targets each.

The fact that he is no longer the worst producer in Europe may be anecdotal, but in the case of Leganes it was vital to leave such a black trend.

Also the first time in the entire league that, in a match, achieved more than one goal per game.
