Real Madrid face Leganes looking for revenge for Cup humiliation

Real Madrid face Leganes looking for revenge for Cup humiliation”

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane praised wingers Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio for their defensive work as well as their attacking exploits after his side beat Real Betis 5-3 in La Liga yesterday morning (Singapore time).

Asensio opened the scoring in the eight-goal thriller, however, inspired by Joaquin, Real Betis took a 2-1 lead into the break.

Wednesday's 3-1 European comeback win over much-fancied Paris St Germain earned the Frenchman a bit of breathing space, but he was quizzed once more about his long-term plans ahead of Sunday's trip to Real Betis.

SEVILLE, Spain (AP) - Real Madrid defender Marcelo was substituted during Sunday's Spanish league match at Real Betis with a leg injury. With his goal against Betis, he has now scored in 264 different games for Real Madrid, a record held by the legendary Raul. "He´s a player who can cause a great mess to the rival with very few chances to score and we all know this".

"We're in a good moment, we have scored a lot of goals recently and kept winning matches, which we continued in this hard match". Marcelo was injured in the 26th minute of a frenetic first half after stretching to control a ball in his own box and going down holding the back of his right thigh. If I am to continue, before the end of the season I will tell you. "The second half was completely different, we were spectacular", he added.

"We need to wait and see what the doctors say".

If Asensio plays Zidane will then have to decide whether he leaves Gareth Bale or Karim Benzema on the subs' bench, knowing that whatever decision he makes, it will be certain to cause some controversy.

In the centre of the park, defensive midfielder Casemiro should partner up with Luka Modric, who is often the beating heart of this Madrid side.
