Zinedine Zidane has opted to leave out Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos as they travel to Leganes for Wednesday LaLiga clash.
The former French international captain has rested the trio ahead of stiffer contests, as they face rivals Atletico Madrid on Saturday, and German powerhouse Bayern Munich for the first leg of the Champions League next week.
Ronaldo has notched 19 goals in 23 LaLiga games so far, and although injuries have restricted Gareth Bale’s time on the pitch, he still has seven goals to his credit in 17 league matches.
Madrid travelled with four forwards — Karim Benzema, Lucas Vazquez, Mariano Diaz and Alvaro Morata — for the Leganes encounter
Madrid will hope to consolidate their lead in the LaLiga as they hope to beat Leganes again, having won the reverse fixture 3-nil.
