Modric returns and Benzema out of the list for the match against Leganés


After the draw in Warsaw in Champions League, Los Blancos will play in the regular season against Leganés at Santiago Bernabéu. Los Blancos will face a newly promoted team in the 12th week of La Liga Santander tomorrow (12:00). Zinedine Zidane made public the list to face Leganés where we can see Modric return and Real Madrid won’t have available Benzema because of hamstring problems. Sergio Ramos, Pepe and Casemiro are still injured and they won’t play against Leganés, so it seems that Nacho and Varane will be again the full back pair. Zidane recovers Marcelo who didn’t travel to Warsaw in the match they played this week.

Benzema will not play against Leganés, so Morata will have a great chance to continue scoring goals and show the level he has. Benzema has hamstring problems and the French manager has decided not to take any risks, giving him a rest.

Luka Modric will return to a list after his knee injunry he suffered at Cornellá in the 18th of September. The Croatian midfielder might have some minutes after being more than a month with the recovery of his left knee. These are great news for Los Blancos because Modric is the player that guides Los Blancos.

Marcelo will return to the list after being absent the match Real Madrid played against Warsaw. Marcelo is a key player for Los Blancos because his attack incorporations and his “anarchy” are very dangerous for the opponent teams. James also will return to a list because it seems the Colombian midfielder has recover from his groin injury.

This is the full list for the game against Leganés for tomorrow:

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla and Yáñez
Defenders: Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Coentrao and Danilo.
Midfielders: Kroos, James, Kovacic, Modric, Asensio and Isco
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale, Lucas Vázquez and Morata.
