Real Madrid have surprisingly dropped points from their trip to the Estadio Municipal de Butarque where they could only manage a 1-1 draw. The home side took the lead courtesy of a goal from Jonathan Silva just before the half-time break.
Zidane’s side bounced back shortly after the restart of play with some sublime bit of footwork by Luka Modric which was brilliantly finished off by Karim Benzema. The Whites dominated the entire game in terms of possession and chances created but failed to create any daylight between the two sides in terms of the scoreline.
The Real Madrid gaffer would undoubtedly be disappointed by the performance his side put in given the fact that a nearly full strength line-up was selected for this encounter against mid-table Leganes.
Here’s how Real Madrid players fared in their draw against Leganes.
Keylor Navas – 7/10
A fairly average night for the Costa Rican goalie who would have been gunning for a clean-sheet.
Dani Carvajal – 7/10
A good return from injury for Carvajal who put in a dedicated and committed performance.
Raphael Varane – 8/10
Varane was right on top of his game. Constantly kept the Leganes attacks at bay with good defensive positioning.
Nacho Fernandez – 7/10
The utility defender put in a satisfactory performance for Zidane in the absence of Sergio Ramos.
Marcelo Viera – 8/10
A captain’s performance from Marcelo who seemed to be in the groove today.
Luka Modric – 8/10
Modric was simply amazing on the night. His turn for the first goal which took out two defenders was phenomenal. The Croatian would be gutted that he could not push his side across the line.
Casemiro – 7/10
“The Tank” put in a solid performance as always. Casemiro seemed really animated on the night and was seen in a few exchanges of words with the referee.
Federico Valverde – 7/10
Valverde made the most of the opportunity presented to him by Zidane. He was a bright spark right throughout the game. The midfielder picked up a yellow card for a poorly timed tackle.
Marco Asensio – 7/10
Asensio looked lively on the ball and was a constant threat to the Leganes defence.
Karim Benzema – 8/10
The lanky striker seems to be getting better with age. He was once again the source of inspiration for this dilapidated Real Madrid side.
Isco Alarcon – 8/10
A charismatic performance from Isco who has become the star of the side since his return from his long injury lay-off.
Lucas Vasquez – 6/10
Did not have much involvement post coming on for Isco.
Gareth Bale – 6/10
Did not have any impact on the game post coming on for Marco Asensio.
