Leganes v Real Madrid Team News

Los Blancos fell to yet another defeat - second out of the last five outings (W1 D2 L2) and fifth overall this season in all competitions (W15 D8 L5) - to Villarreal last weekend, that has effectively been ruining last season's La Liga and Champions League winners' ongoing campaign.

Furthermore, Real Madrid have been far from successful on all fronts given how frail Blancos have performed at Santiago Bernabeu - conceding 17 goals in the 15 matches they have been involved so far - despite having five players who were included in UEFA's Team of The Year 2017 at Zidane's disposal with Ramos, Marcelo, Modric, Cross and Ronaldo.

Leganes, on the other hand, have made their way to the Copa del Rey quarter-finals by squizzing through Spain second-tier side Valladolid and so-called giants Villareal, the team that last beat the Madrid club, netting in each of those cup games. What's more remarkable is, Leganes have scored in 6 of their last 8 games running - including the six goals they've produced against Villarreal this season.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Leganes: Alexander Szymanowski, Jon Ander Serantes.

Real Madrid: Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema, Luca Zidane.

Conclusion and Betting Prediction:

Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane will most likely make changes to his line-up he named in last weekend's frustrating loss to Villarreal because they will face a pretty busy schedule including four games in the next 10 days, with the capital team due to twice face Leganes and Deportivo in between, plus making a trip to Valencia at the end of the month.

That said, they cannot afford another disgraceful result, albeit it is a cup game, but we expect Los Blancos to be alert to keep mid-table Leganes under control and make this tie fall into the category of effortless victories.
