How to Watch Leganes vs. Real Madrid

Leganes vs. Real Madrid: Team News, Preview, Live Stream, TV Info

Cristiano Ronaldo has been rested by Zinedine Zidane for Real Madrid's LaLiga trip to Leganes on Wednesday.

The European champions are still seven points shy of Atletico Madrid in second and 14 behind leaders Barcelona.

After the break, however, Madrid put on a strong show, with Sergio Ramos putting the team even with a header in the 50th minute and Asensio blasting in a great shot nine minutes later.

Los Blancos have been a game down on their rivals since December because of their involvement in the FIFA Club World Cup, and they will move into third place if they win here.

Only in its second season in the first division, Leganes had a promising start to the campaign but has struggled recently.

Defender Unai Bustinza had earlier headed Leganes into a sixth-minute lead in weird fashion as he dived to block a clearance, but Lucas Vazquez cancelled out that advantage within five minutes with a smart finish. Marcelo was one of Real's best performers in the 3-1 win over PSG at the Santiago Bernabeu last week and scored the final goal of the game to give them a two-goal cushion in the tie.

Zidane, as he had hinted he may do, rang the changes with Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Marcelo among those missing. The defender dived in front of the ball as Madrid left back Theo Hernandez tried to clear it from near the goal line.

Spanish winger Lucas Vazquez pulled the champions back into the game five minutes later by latching on to a backheel by Casemiro and arrowing his finish into the far bottom corner.

El Zhar had a penalty claim following an untidy challenge from Kovacic rejected - the infringement did appear to take place fractionally outside the area - and Madrid continued to do more work in their own half than they would have liked.
