Leganes extended their unbeaten run in La Liga to four matches with a 1-1 draw at Real Sociedad on 1 April. The Madrid-based club are five points above the relegation zone in 17th place with nine games left to play.

Midfielder Erik Moran is suspended after accumulating five yellow cards.

Goals from Karim Benzema, Isco and Nacho gave Real Madrid a 3-0 win over Deportivo Alaves at the weekend – the capital club's fifth straight victory. Zinedine Zidane's side have won their last four away matches in all competitions.

Centre-back Raphael Varane will miss the trip to Leganes after picking up a thigh injury in the Alaves match, but midfielder Casemiro is available after serving a one-match ban.

What managers say

Asier Garitano: "It is always difficult to take a point against La Real. We were lucky that La Real did not score through Sergio Canales at the start of the match. After [Juanmi's goal] they tightened up at the back and made things more difficult for us." [via Marca]

Zinedine Zidane: "When Isco plays, as he is a good player, he does very well. That's it. We are 24 players and everyone here is important. Isco is doing very well. What he wants to is to play here. I am very happy for his game, not just the goal, but helping the others play, getting between the lines. He played a complete game [against Alaves]." [via ESPN]
