Apart from losing against Valencia, Madrid have been doing quite well every since Zidane’s return. Los Blancos pretty much won all of their other games expect from that 2-1 loss against Los Che.

Not having any other games outside of La Liga, Madrid have enough time to prepare for the Monday tie. Zidane’s side shouldn’t have any complain regarding players’ tiredness or even rotation policy.

Team News

Leganes

Los Pepineros will be without Oscar Rodriguez along with Lunin for this Monday tie due to injury problems. There’s also some doubts regarding En-Neysri, Omeruo and Recio’s condition ahead of the match.

Pellegrino is looking to pair up Braithwaite and Carillo up front in a hope of breaking down Madrid’s defense. Jonathan Silva and Ruben Perez will be key again in the home team’s midfield.

Real Madrid

There isn’t much injury trouble for Los Blancos for this Monday tie with Vinicus the only one confirmed to be missing out. Mariano Diaz and Thibaut Courtouis’ condition remain uncertain, but they could also be used on the bench.

Madrid set to play Dani Carvajal back into the right back as he recovered from his injury. Karim Benzema will continue to lead the line with his good goal scoring form this season.

Head to Head Records:

The last five meetings between both teams have been dominated by Los Blancos as they won all of them.

Their last match up was on January 17, 2019 at Copa del Rey tie which was won by Madrid 1-0.

Match Prediction

Playing at home isn’t a guarantee for Leganes as they’re playing Madrid that have superior talents. However, Leganes are hoping that their home support can lift their players confidence.

Los Blancos themselves are also keen on getting a win as they are not keen on finishing behind Atletico Madrid. Madrid should be favorite to take the win, though Leganes might cause some problems.

Final Score: 1-2
