page contents LEGANES VS REAL MADRID PREVIEW – Real FootballCR7


The home team will be looking to once more defeat Madrid this season. The home team can somewhat draw inspiration from the copa del rey quarter finals in which they knocked out Madrid. But it can be clearly seen that since then, things has changed at the bernabeu and Madrid are now playing beautifully. Leganes aren’t doing badly either, they lie in the 13th spot in the league, 11 points off the drop zone, but that won’t derail there determination to solidify their grip on middle berth of the table and a win against Madrid will do just that. Leganes are a team that absorbs pressure as they have been showing throughout d season, most times dey get beaten with it and also sometimes they triumph with it as was shown in the 2nd leg tie at the bernabeu in the copa del rey quarter finals which they won 2-1. During that match Madrid were missing most of their stars as Bale,cr7,modric and kroos didn’t participate in that match. Its quite sad that they also won’t be available for tonight clash except bale who is expected to start. The likes of modric,kroos,Marcelo are all out injured,
only Cristiano Ronaldo was rested, so he can stay fit for the rest games. Madrid starting lineup will be keenly watched. It is expected that benzema and bale start uptop in a 4-4-2(flat) formation. But the important decision has to be made in the midfield. Who are to replace modric,kroos???, it is expected that Theo hanadez will replace Marcelo. In a four men midfield it should be :- Asensio, isco,kovacic and lucaz all starting together. Starting casemiro in a match like this is useless cause leganes will quite sit deep to defend, their only chance of hurting Madrid will be through, counter attacks and set pieces and with kovacic playing as the holding midfielder Madrid can be rest assured because his marking and ball recovery are top notch. Madrid has to win this match so as to strengthen their grip on top 4 and push Valencia down to 4th place. The match wipp be an exciting one because all football fans knows what happened to Madrid in the copa del rey us a repeat on the cards?? Let’s see.
