The preview:

This is the fixture Madrid have been holding from December, As they couldn’t play while they were on a busy schedule for the CLUB WORLD CUP. This is a game which could reduce the points gap to 14, although Madrid could hardly win the league.If Madrid could fetch the complete 3 points then they are 9 points clear of fifth-placed Sevilla and 2 points of fourth-placed Valencia.

Madridista’s are aren’t happy with Leganés, they’ve knocked them out of Copa del Rey, though Madrid suffered from back in January.Now, Madrid is doing their best knocking down every team in their way, having scored 25 goals in their last 7 games.With Cristiano scoring 10 in his last 6 games.Asensio is the current sensation, he’s doing his job very well and by now every Madridista wants him to play every game.Marcelo’s role in the left flank is impressive, and he just can’t stand back down the wing!! And he’s not bad in defence, he is just the best LB right now.

But Zidane has to bring on some changes in the squad just because, Kroos is still in injury, Modric is injured, Marcelo is injured, And Vallejo has not recovered yet.Theo is expected to replace Marcelo while Achraf could also be a choice.Asensio would fill Kroos’s absence.Isco could replace Modric’s position. Zidane could try switching players coz Madrid is having a streak of matches in upcoming days as rest becomes mandatory.

As said above Madrid’s attack is good, But defence is not up to their level.Madrid hasn’t kept a clean sheet since Jan 8, 2018. A team with Ramos, Marcelo, Carvajal, Varane shouldn’t allow goals like this.Though Navas was impressive against PSG, he gave away 3 goals against Betis. 

Ultimately Madrid should win this fixture to hope for some chaos in the league table.This win could further boost Madrid’s momentum as they have Won 6 of their last 8 Matches, drawing one.It is a fixture for Madrid to keep their pace.

Predicted Line-up :
 

Real Madrid-
Navas; Ramos, Varane , Carvajal, Theo; Isco , Casemiro , Vazquez, Asensio; Benzema, Ronaldo.

Leganés –
Cuellar; Tito, Bustinza, Siovas , Salguero; Brasanac , Pires, El Zhar , Goni, Amrabat ; Beauvue.

Predicted score:

Leganés 1-3 Real Madrid.
