Leganes 1-1 Real Madrid: Zinedine Zidane's side held by neighbours

17 April 2019

Karim Benzema rescued a point for Real Madrid in a 1-1 draw with Leganes in La Liga on Monday.

He also demands a lot but he never puts pressure on us other than asking the best of us.

Madrid delivered another thoroughly underwhelming performance at Butarque to remain 13 points adrift of Barcelona, with Zinedine Zidane's second reign as coach now delivering three wins, one defeat and a draw. I am preparing for this, I am training hard and hopefully I can play the final few games this season for Madrid, then be called up by the national team. "Better not to risk him".

A Madrid player whose future remains uncertain is Welsh galactico Gareth Bale, who made little impression during a late run as a substitute.

Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal has played down the need for a squad overhaul at the club this summer.

The Brazilian has admitted it is daunting to play for one of the greatest footballers of all-time but hopes to soon catch his eye. Every player is good and important.

"He's now in another chapter in his career and I'm exhausted of repeating myself because we're not going to win anything at the end of this season but we are going to try and finish strongly". We'll see who stays and who goes, but that doesn't change what I think about Kroos.

"I know that he gives opportunities in the first team to all players and I am confident that when I return (to full fitness) I will have my chance too".

The 27-year-old would fetch a good deal of cash from Madrid should Liverpool opt to sell the Senegalese superstar, but if you want my advice - don't hold your breath...
