News | 30/10/2019 | Alberto NavarroThe Whites face a week featuring a trio of home games, two league outings and a Champions League clash.
The Whites, who are unbeaten on home soil in their five competitive outings so far this term, will be aiming to secure all six points in these consecutive LaLiga encounters at the Bernabéu as they bid to cement their place amongst the division's frontrunners.
"We're ready and prepared to take the three points", commented Zinedine Zidane in his pre-match press conference. The Real Madrid boss will have to do without the suspended Álvaro Odriozola and the injured Nacho and Marco Asensio. Two players who are included in the 19-man squad are the returning Luka Modric and Lucas Vázquez, as well as Karim Benzema, who has been on target in each of his three LaLiga appearances at the Bernabéu this campaign.
Leganés head to the Bernabéu sitting rock bottom of the LaLiga standings, but with renewed hope after claiming their first triumph of the season in Saturday's clash against Mallorca. The visitors have a new man in change with Luis Cembranos, who has replaced Mauricio Pellegrino at the helm, taking his place in the dugout for the first time. Martin Braithwaite and madridista academy product Óscar Rodríguez are the Madrilenians' leading goalscorers, with three and two goals to their names respectively.
