Madrid disappoint again in dreary draw with Leganes

Madrid disappoint again in dreary draw with Leganes

"Cristiano's situation is one that we can't change, he's gone".

Real Madrid took the Monday night slot reserved for La Liga's lower teams and never really looked out of place as Karim Benzema's goal was enough only for a 1-1 draw away to Leganes.

Vinicius is yet to make an appearance under Zidane since the Frenchman's return to the club, but the teenage star has spent some time with the 1998 World Cup victor, and explained briefly why Zidane can make a player nervous.

Madrid put in the kind of lethargic performance which has plagued their season, with Marco Asensio and Raphael Varane missing good first-half chances.

Jonathan Silva scored for Leganes in the waning seconds of the first half when the defender curled a shot past Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas inside the box.

New tech to help clamp down on driver mobile phone use
This will include officers making use of a bus provided by Stagecoach to stop those using mobile devices while behind the wheel. Police are cracking down on drivers who illegally use their mobile phones with a new device that detects the risky behaviour.

Youssef En-Nesyri thought he had clinched a famous win for Leganes late on, but the offside flag sparred Madrid's blushes in what was a frustrating outing for the visitors.

"[Benzema] is used to that, new players coming", Zidane said. I've always liked him.

Madrid should have been made to pay four minutes later, only for Martin Braithwaite to head wide from three yards out after getting the better of Nacho, playing in a defence minus the services of the injured Sergio Ramos.

Omeruo who is now on loan from Chelsea has made 22 La Liga appearances this season. Playing 10 or 15 minutes is hard for those who come into the game, it was the same with Lucas [Vazquez]. We'll see who stays and who goes, but that doesn't change what I think about Kroos.
