Real Madrid will look to extend their La Liga winning run to four matches when they host Leganes at the Santiago Bernabeu on 6 November.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 11am GMT. The game will be broadcast live on Sky Sports 3 HD.


Real Madrid's five-game winning run in all competitions came to an end as they were held to a 3-3 draw by Legia Warsaw in the Champions League on 2 November. The capital club have not kept a clean sheet in their last 11 matches across all competitions.

Karim Benzema will miss the Leganes clash with a hip injury but Luka Modric (knee) is available. Centre-backs Pepe and Sergio Ramos are still sidelined through injury.

Goals from Willian Jose and Xabi Prieto condemned Leganes to a 2-0 loss against Real Sociedad on 28 October – their third straight defeat in La Liga. The Madrid-based club are playing in the top tier of Spanish football for the first time in their history.

Alberto Brignoli, Rober, Mamadou Kone, Adrian Marin and Toni Dovale all missed training with various physical problems on 4 November and are doubtful to feature at the Bernabeu.

What managers say

Zinedine Zidane: "Luka Modric is with us, he is in the squad. He may have some minutes, let's see. The important thing is that he's OK, he's completely recovered from his injury, that is the most important thing for me and everyone. We know tomorrow is a difficult game, it will be complicated. Away from home, they play very well. They know how to play so we have to be at the top of our concentration, we have to play a serious game."

Asier Garitano: "The objective is that the Leganes can return in the coming years to the Bernabeu. All our people feel proud to see our players compete against Real Madrid. They are a great opponent and it is a big stage. I hope we face the best version of Real Madrid."
