Real Madrid v Leganés should be an easy game (12:00) for Los Blancos before another break for the international fixtures. Zidane’s side couldn’t beat Legia Warsaw away in the Champions League group and should earn the three points in La Liga to continue top of the table.
Real Madrid v Leganés Preview
Real Madrid face a very important weekend. Los Blancos should have an easy game with the newly promoted Leganés, who will visit Santiago Bernabéu stadium for the first time in their history. Atlético Madrid travel to Anoeta and Barcelona visit Sevilla, so both giants could lose points and leave Los Blancos clear at the top of the table.
Zidane has still some issues with the injuries. Pepe, Sergio Ramos and Casemiro are not available whereas Luka Modric could be included in the list, although is very unlikely that he could start the game. The BBC are expected to start again despite their poor performances recently.
Leganés are winless in their last four games in La Liga. They are only one point clear from the relegation zone. However, the Garitano side won all their three games away, so they are a dangerous team playing far from Butarque. Brignoli, Marín, Dovale, Koné and Robert Ibáñez are doubts for the game.

Real Madrid v Leganés Prediction
Real Madrid have not lost any game in the season, but they were surprised by Legia Warsaw in the Champions League. They should thrash Leganés at home before the international break. It’s very important to get the three points because the next game will be another derby against Atlético Madrid.
Leganés are in a very poor performance recently, having lost the last four games in La Liga. This is their first season in the First Division and it will be difficult to avoid the relegation. However the team from Madrid started quite well the season, especially away.
They haven’t met in La Liga because Leganés is a newly promoted team. However, both teams face in Copa del Rey twice. Los Galácticos suffered in Butaque to qualify and beat in the extra time (3-4) Leganés with a goal scored by Raúl in 2003. One year later, Los Blancos also knocked out Leganés at home (1-2) with Owen and Morientes in the scorer sheet.
