Real Madrid host Leganes in what should be a manageable game for Zidane and the players, although the same thing was said when they visited Legia last Wednesday and Los Blancos ended up collecting a very discouraging 3-3 draw after leading 0-2 in the second half.
Marcelo, Modric and James are all back with the team and should provide quite a boost, especially the Croatian midfielder. He has been sorely missed even since he picked up a knee injury which required surgery to get repaired.
Atletico Madrid lost the away game against Real Sociedad 2-0 and that means that Real should increase their lead to Atleti in La Liga if they manage to beat Leganes at home.
"It's another different game, but it'll be tough. Leganés are a team who move very well away from home and know how to play. We have to have maximum concentration levels and take the game seriously. We want to play a good match and give everything to make sure we're pleased with the performance. Wednesday's match is over and we're only thinking about tomorrow's game. La Liga is our day-to-day work and I hope we play a good match tomorrow," said Zidane.
