There will be an inquest if Real Madrid fail to crush Leganes...
<div><h2>Real Madrid vs Leganes</h2><p><strong><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Wednesday, October 28, at the Bernebeu</a></strong></p><p>Real Madrid should be well rested for this game after their weekend match against Barcelona was cancelled due to civil unrest in Catalonia. Their last league game resulted in an absolutely miserable 1-0 defeat to relegation threatened Mallorca, and they will be desperate to make amends. Since then they have beaten Galatasary 1-0 in the Champions League, which should restore a bit of confidence. There will be an inquest if they fail to secure a convincing victory at home against bottom club Leganes in this game.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Zinedine Zidane went with an unusual 4-4-2 formation in Real Madrid’s 1-0 defeat away at Mallorca. Luka Jovic played up front alongside in-form Karim Benzema, with Casemiro and Isco in central midfield, Vinicius Junior on the left and James Rodriguez shunted out to the right. It proved to be a disaster. He reverted to his tried and tested 4-3-3 against Galatasaray and they won 1-0. That game saw Toni Kroos restored to the starting line-up alongside Casemiro and youngster Federico Valverde, and the German international scored the winner. Eden Hazard and new man Rodrygo flanked Benzema up top. Luka Modric and Gareth Bale are on the brink of a return from injury, which should give Los Blancos a boost.</p><p><a href=";a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Leganes picked up their first win of the season when they toppled Mallorca at the weekend. However, Mallorca are horrendous on the road, so it is not exactly the sort of result to strike fear into the hearts of Real Madrid players. Leganes lost their previous three matches, and scoring goals has been a problem for them all season. They have managed just five goals in 10 games, and only two players – Martin Braithwaite and Oscar Rodriguez – have hit the back of the net for them. The midfielders are goal shy and Guido Carillo is on a goal drought. The defence is not overly leaky, but they have only kept one clean sheet all season and that came against fellow strugglers Mallorca.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><div><div><div id=":132"><div id=":131"><div dir="ltr"><p>Real Madrid look vastly superior to Leganes in every department, they will have much fresher legs and they really should win this match comfortably. The recent head-to-head record will be a concern for home fans, as Leganes took four points off Real Madrid last season, but Los Blancos won the previous four meetings and they should get back to winning ways this week.</p><p><strong>Tips: <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bet365">Real Madrid – 1.5 Asian handicap at 1.87 (87/100) with Bet365</a>; <a href=";a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Coral">Real Madrid win to nil at 2.20 (6/5) with Coral</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
