Head Coach: Mauricio Pellegrino
Club Deportivo Leganés, S.A.D., founded on June 1928, is a Spanish club that plays in the La Liga. The club plays its home games at Estadio Municipal de Butarque, located in Leganés.
A regular fixture in the lower leagues, CD Leganés slowly made its way to the top-flight after going through division three and second division. The club reached the recently-introduced division three then in 1987 and was then promoted to the second division six years later. In the 2015/16 season, for the first time in the club’s history, CD Leganés was awarded a promotion to La Liga. This was made possible by a 1-0 away win against CD Mirandés on June 4, 2016.
CD Leganés’ most notable achievement in the La Liga was its qualification for the Copa del Rey semifinals which came by eliminating Real Madrid in the quarterfinals ending the match with a 2-1 scoreline at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.
