Real Madrid will take no chances (especially after last year’s Copa debacle), and use a strong backline. They will be absolutely particular not to concede and put themselves under unnecessary risk. From there, Real will try to score an early goal, and try to get the psychological advantage. It’s time for the Los Blancos to settle scores. Last year, it was against this same team that Real Madrid got eliminated in the Copa. The Whites would have loved to get Leganes some other time when the European Champions’ form and future looked not so bleak.After Julen Lopetegui was fired it looked like Santiago Solari had brought things under control. But few games down the road, it feels like even he has failed in reviving the Ronaldo-less Los Merengues.

Real Madrid vs Leganes Prediction
Okay. Hardcore Madridistas won’t like what I have to say. The Royal Whites need to learn to prioritize now. They are 10 points away from the top of the league table, and it seems like nothing would stop the Catalans. Glory in Europe seems a distant dream now, especially without their stallion who moved to Italy. The only chance for Real to put hands on silverware is the Copa del Rey.
