A shock 1-0 defeat to Mallorca in Real Madrid’s last La Liga (LL) game was their first loss of the league campaign, but the fourth top-flight match from their last five that finished with under 2.5 goals. At home, at least, Real have scored 2+ goals in four straight competitive matches (W3, D1), winning by half-time in all three victories.
Los Blancos were woeful at Son Moix and fully deserved to come away with nothing from a game which was made worse for them by Alvaro Odriozola’s dismissal 15 minutes from time.
The 23 year-old is subsequently banned for this midweek clash, adding to a number of potential selection issues for boss Zinedine Zidane with the likes of Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Lucas Vazquez all nursing injuries.
Karim Benzema (RMA) has netted the opener in all five league games he’s scored in this term.
Real Madrid is ranked on the 1st place in the standings with 93 points, 106 goals scored and 41 goals received in the last 38 leaguegames.

Leganés’ last match was also against Mallorca, but they triumphed 1-0 and grabbed their first win of the season (W1, D2, L7). However their winning goal in that game was just their fifth goal this season, averaging a paltry 0.5 per LL match so far.
Lega do at least head into this contest on the back of their first league win of the campaign, after beating Real’s recent conquerors Mallorca 1-0 at Butarque on Saturday thanks to a goal 30 minutes in from Danish forward Martin Braithwaite.
Based on that performance, fans can perhaps expect some progress up the table in the coming weeks with Luis Cembranos now at the helm, though it’s unlikely that they will pick up any further points from this Matchday 11 encounter.
Martin Braithwaite scored a first-half winner in Leganés’ last match – yet his other two goals this term came as second-half consolation strikes in a pair of 2-1 defeats.
Leganes are ranked on the 17th place in the standings with 35 points, 36 goals scored and 55 goals received this season in La Liga.In their last match they draw against Alaves.
