Real Madrid will face Leganes on Wednesday night. It will be an exciting match as Los Blancos is already in the 6th position because of one less game played.
El Clasico was postponed
La Liga officials did not like the decision of the Spanish football federation. As you may know, Catalonia is full of street protests, so Spain authorities decided to postpone El Clasico to December. La Liga’s president and chairman were not happy because of the decision. Barcelona was ready to host Real Madrid warmly, and the Catalonian government was prepared to prepare everything to match correctly. As it seems, Spain authorities decided to avoid all kinds of insinuations.
Real Madrid has 7 days’ rest, Leganes – 2 days.
El Clasico was postponed, So Real Madrid has no games during the weekend. Zidane used the free schedule to prepare the team better. Real Madrid will be fully ready for Leganes, while the guest team has problems.
Leganes won the match three days ago against Mallorca. The team could score one goal and have not conceded any. As of this moment, Leganes is in the last position of the La Liga table.
Interesting situation with Gareth Bale
Gareth Bale is not in Madrid for the last few days. Welshman traveled in different countries for the previous three days. Journalists started rumors that Gareth Bale may be ready for a contract with the Chinese Club.
Bale’s agent met with journalists on Monday and said that Gareth would stay in Madrid. At the same time, Zidane told journalists that he is happy with Bale, and Welshman has a little vacation to get proper rest for future games.
Bale had a meeting with his agent on Tuesday in London. Gareth returned to Madrid on Wednesday morning and has not trained with Los Blancos for a few weeks.
Vinicius Junior out of squad list
Zidane made a new decision on Tuesday. Brazilian youngster Vinicius won’t be able to play against Leganes because Zidane has not included him in the squad list. Yet, we don’t know the actual reasons for this decision. As it seems, Zidane is more satisfied with Rodrygo’s performance, and he will give more time to Brazilian 18-year-old players rather than Vinicius.
We should mention that Junior started the season in bad form. He could only score one goal in 7 matches and had no serious impact on Real Madrid’s results so far.
