Twelve months before, in 2018, the beginning of the year was, with Garitano, also irregular. It started well, with triumph against Real Sociedad (1-0), but then it became a small secarral of a defeat (against Betis, 3-2) and a draw (against Alavés, 2-2) that made up for the final triumph against Espanyol (3-2) and, above all, the epic copera to eliminate Real Madrid despite losing 0-1 in Butarque. The famous ‘Pepinazo’ (1-2 at the Bernabéu) occurred on January 24 of that 2018.Nothing to do that with the black, very black beginning of 2017 that the Leganés drew in his premiere in the elite. Then the pepineros did not win any of their four games in the month of January: they fell against Betis (2-0) and Celta (0-2), in addition to drawing against Athletic (0-0) and Alavés (2-2). That streak, inserted in the middle of a major of 13 consecutive straight games without winning, was settled already in February, when the Leganés he beat Deportivo (4-0), and began to lay the foundations of his first stay in the elite, that now faced by Aguirre for 2020. The Leganés maintains a love-hate relationship with the beginning of the year since he is a team of First division. The Blue and Whites almost always star in beginnings to trompicones, which combine important triumphs, with notable stumbling blocks. For this 2020 that begins now, those of Javier Aguirre They cannot afford to repeat the trend, more according to the calendar ahead of them in the League: Valladolid, Getafe and Atlético de Madrid.Thus, for example (and taking into account only the regularity tournament matches) andl Leganés in 2019 started the year with tears (defeat 1-0 against Espanyol) and concluded with rage (defeat 3-1 against Barça with the famous knee of Suárez to Cuéllar) and impotence (2-2 against Eibar with a comeback). In between, a vital victory against Huesca (1-0) and the elimination takes on Real Madrid in which the de Pellegrin they managed to knock down the targets in Butarque.
