In a week in which the UEFA Champions League quarter-final seconds legs will take place, playing a domestic fixture on a Monday night rather than a European game in midweek will only serve as a reminder to Los Blancos what a disappointing campaign they have endured.
In Real’s most recent match, they laboured to a 2-1 win over Eibar, coming from behind courtesy of a Karim Benzema brace. The Frenchman bagged two second-half headers after Marc Cardona handed Eibar the lead at the Santiago Bernabeu:
He could easily have had a hat-trick. The striker had two goals disallowed for offside, with the second a marginal call that required a lengthy VAR review, and he also hit the post.
The goals took his tally to 17 in La Liga this season. Benzema has only been more prolific in the league for Los Blancos in the 2010-11 and 2015-16 seasons, during which he bagged 21 and 24 goals, respectively.
Real have struggled since Cristiano Ronaldo left last summer, which was to be expected when he averaged 50 goals a season in all competitions over the course of his nine campaigns in the Spanish capital.
With seven games left, he will hope to at least hit the benchmark of 20 goals in La Liga again, starting with success against Leganes.
Los Pepineros have only scored 31 goals in as many league matches this season—only Real Valladolid have a less potent attack in La Liga—so Zinedine Zidane’s team should be capable of dealing with them.
That said, Madrid have already lost five times on the road in La Liga this season, including their most recent away match against Valencia on April 3, while Leganes have only lost twice at home.
