Leganes vs. Real Madrid - Football Match Report

17 April 2019

He's been in Madrid five years and has done great things.

Courtois: "He's not well, it's not just one problem it's two or three".

Leganes might even have won it after Jonathan Silva gave them the lead shortly before half-time and while Benzema scored his 26th goal of the season, Madrid never looked like finding a victor. Leganes climb to 11th.

David de Gea is also believed to be wanted by Real Madrid though pundit Steve Nicol believes Manchester United should stand firm this summer.

Jonathan Silva scored for Leganes in the waning seconds of the first half when the defender curled a shot past Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas inside the box.

Most of Zidane's press conferences have so far been dominated by questions about his players' futures and on this evidence, few will be feeling secure.

Leganes' lead was short-lived, though, Benzema - who had been played in brilliantly by Luka Modric - tucking home at the second attempt from a tight angle following a fine initial save from Cuellar.

Madrid and Bale's agent are expected to meet soon as they look to find a possible solution concerning his future, while Los Blancos have set a 100 million euro price tag on his head.

Substitute En-Nesyri was rightly flagged offside as Leganes pushed for a victor, with Cuellar on top form at the other end to deny Marcelo and ensure a well-deserved point against their illustrious city rivals.

Despite decent periods of pressure, Leganes had failed to register a shot on target during the first period until they took the lead on the stroke of half-time.
