Leganés v Real Madrid Preview
Leganés are struggling to avoid relegation this season and they only sit five points above the relegation zone. The South Madrid team is in a good form and they haven’t lost in the last four games, including three draws in their last three fixtures. They were able to get a point from Valencia and Sevilla, very difficult venues. The newly promoted team will face the game without Erik Morán, who is suspended, and Serantes and Robert Ibáñez for different injuries.
Real Madrid need to win this game to continue topping the table, because FC Barcelona are now only two points behind. Los Blancos suffered to beat Alavés and now they face Atlético Madrid and Bayern Múnich in the next week. For this reason, Zidane will make some changes in the line-up again. Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos are out of the list. Raphael Varane will miss the game after suffering another muscular injury and Coentrao shouldn’t be fit neither.

Leganés v Real Madrid Prediction
Leganés are struggling to stay out of the bottom three, but they are now in a good form. Atlético Madrid, for instance, weren’t able to win at Butarque but FC Barcelona thrashed Leganés. We don’t expect an easy game for Los Blancos, but they should be able to get the three points in their first derby of the week.
Real Madrid beat Leganés (3-0) in their only meeting in La Liga. Gareth Bale scored a brace and Álvaro Morata closed the scoreboard.
