Please Note: Changes will be made to this article approximately 50-55 mins before the deadline. The article will be updated with the confirmed lineups and the revised combined XI when the official starting lineups are released by both the teams.
A deflated Real Madrid will lock horns with 13th-place Leganes at the Estadio Butarque tonight in a bid to salvage whatever little is left of their season.
Real Madrid have no chance of winning any silverware this season but will be hoping to finish the season on a high under new manager Zinedine Zidane. Los Blancos have won three of their matches in the league since Zidane took over but lost their previous away clash against Valencia at the Mestalla by a 2-1 scoreline.
Los Blancos face a Leganes side that has virtually nothing to play for this season. A victory over Real Madrid tonight would definitely be one of the major highlights of their entire season.
Predicted Lineups (Updated):
Leganés: Cuéllar; Bustinza, Siovas, Omeruo; Silva, Vesga, Pérez, Nyom, Eraso; Carrillo, Braithwaite.
Real Madrid: Keylor Navas; Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo; Casemiro, Modric, Valverde; Isco, Marco Asensio, Benzema
Combined XI for the game (Updated):
Captain & Vice-Captain Options:
- Vinicius Jr
- Sergio Ramos
- Real Madrid have won each of their last 5 La Liga matches against Leganes.
- Real Madrid have lost only 1 of their last 8 away matches in La Liga.
- En-Nesyri is Leganes’ top scorer this season with 8 goals to his name. He is a small injury doubt for this match.
- Benzema has scored 17 goals for Real Madrid this season in La Liga. Next highest is Gareth Bale with 8 goals.
