Zinedine Zidane says he is pleased with his players' attitude after he made ten changes to his XI for Saturday's win against Leganes in La Liga. We can't be happy with our performance in LaLiga overall.

"We dropped in intensity towards the end of the game and that made them stronger".

Meanwhile Espanyol and Las Palmas drew 1-1 with Gerard Moreno's 15th goals of the campaign cancelling out Jonathan Callieri's first half penalty for Las Palmas, who have already been mathematically relegated to the second division. "We have a title to defend". With the league title out of reach, Madrid will likely turn their attention to a third straight Champions League title.

Real Madrid has defeated Leganes 2-1, earning its first win at Santiago Bernabeu in more than a month.

Leganes travel to Madrid on Saturday to face Real Madrid in a La Liga match.




"The first half was phenomenal". Leganes lost the ball on the defensive end on that play.

"I don't know how significant the first-leg advantage will be in the Champions League".

Darko Brasanac pulled one back for the visitors in the 66th minute.

Bale stepped out of Ronaldo's shadow by making an early statement and continuing to press the Leganes defence as Real looked to leave the result beyond down. Leganes defender Gabriel sent off in injury-time, as Real clung on for the three points after a below-par performance.

Mikel San Jose scored two own goals as Real Sociedad beat Athletic Club Bilbao in the Basque derby with Mikel Oyarzabal scoring the other goal for the home side while Raul Garcia netted for Athletic. I'm very happy to have got the goal, played and got some minutes under my belt. The Colombian striker broke the deadlock in the 13th minute and tapped in to complete his hat-trick seven minutes before half-time and score his 18th goal of the season.
