Real Madrid visit Leganes in the return leg of their Copa del Rey tie. Los Blancos have a big 3-0 lead after the match at the Bernabeu and this game will be a good opportunity for the youngsters to get some valuable minutes.
Brahim Diaz could get his first start for Madrid since joining the club last week. Brahim is an exciting prospect but he still needs minutes to develop and grow as a player, something he can do by playing matches like this one.
Coach Santiago Solari has decided to give Ramos and Modric some rest and Bale, Asensio and Kroos are all injured, meaning that this match will be played mostly by reserves. Madrid will host Sevilla next Saturday and the starters need to be fresh for that tough game in La Liga, so the youngsters will be required to take care of business at Butarque this time around.
