Los Blancos haven’t kept a clean sheet at home all season so legates can get on the scoresheet.
Real Madrid v Leganes – Sunday 11:00, Sky Sports 3
Real Madrid were involved in a bizarre 3-3 draw with Legia Warsaw in the Champions League in an empty stadium as they were 2-0 up and cruising but needed a late goal to rescue a point. They’re unbeaten and winning their fair share of matches this season but they’re also leaking plenty of goals. It’s now 10 matches without a clean sheet in all competitions, due largely to the absence of Casemiro, while Ramos, Modric and now Pepe are also on the sidelines.
In their first ever season in Spain’s top-flight, Leganes are teetering on the verge of the relegation zone following four defeats in their last five. After such a run the last thing they’d have wanted would have been a visit to the Bernabeu, but really it’s a fixture the fans should embrace. All three of their wins have actually come on the road this term as they’ve managed to net in all bar one of their away games.
The handicap line’s been set at -3 but Real have covered that in six of their last 16 home matches against promoted sides. Nine of these saw both teams score and given Los Blancos haven’t kept a clean sheet at home all season and their current injury crisis, Real to win and both teams to score looks the best bet.
