Real Madrid vs Leganes: Whites may have to work for victory

Kick Off: 1730, 28/04/2018

Zinedine Zidane looks set to ring the changes for Real Madrid’s LaLiga clash with Leganes and that could give the visitors a chance to be competitive.

Asier Garitano’s side have already won 2-1 at the Bernabeu in Copa del Rey this season, when knocking the Whites out of that competition.

It’s asking a lot for them to prevail again, but 91/100 for both teams to score is worth a place in our Real Madrid vs Leganes betting predictions.

A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds

Real rode their luck early on before eventually claiming an excellent 2-1 victory at Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Zidane will surely have one eye on the second leg of that semi-final clash when selecting his team for this fixture, although the Whites will not want to fall out of the top three in the table.

Gareth Bale was an unused substitute in midweek and will hopefully be one of those called up for duty.

“I have to make choices and I’ve got some very good players in the squad,” commented Zidane when asked about the Wales winger. “There are still more games to come and I’ll be relying on him.”

Bale can be backed at 19/20 to add to his tally of 14 goals for the club this term and 15/4 for him to net first also catches the eye from the Real Madrid vs Leganes odds.

A Look At Leganes’ Betting Odds

Real gained revenge for that cup upset when securing a 3-1 LaLiga success at Butarque in February, although Garitano’s side again gave a good account of themselves that day.

Unai Bustinza put the underdogs in front on six minutes, before Real replied through Lucas Vazquez and Casemiro to lead after half an hour.

However, the deficit stayed at one goal for the next hour, until Sergio Ramos converted a stoppage-time penalty.

Leganes do not generally travel well, suffering 11 away defeats in LaLiga, but they are clear of relegation trouble and can play with freedom here.

They were beaten 3-1 at Barcelona and 2-1 at Villarreal earlier this month, showing they can score on the road.

A repeat of that second scoreline is 8/1, so let’s add that to our Real Madrid vs Leganes betting tips.
