Zidane's men will try to bounce back from the 3-3 draw against Legia and they will have a very good chance to do so when Leganes visit the Bernabeu. They promoted to La Liga last season and Los Blancos clearly have all the tools to beat them and keep the clean sheet they are looking for.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Kroos, Kovacic, Isco, Ronaldo, Bale, Morata.

Leganes Starting XI: (Serantes; Insúa, Bustinza, Mantovani, Rico; López, Martín, Pérez, Gabriel, Szymanowski and Machís.

As expected, Zidane has decided to start Kovacic, Kroos and Isco in the midfield. The Spanish playmaker did not feature last Wednesday and that ended up being one of the main reasons behind Real's struggles. He makes the team play the right way and provides a good balance between offense and defense.

Morata is replacing Benzema in the lineup as the French attacker picked up a small injury in training.
