Another ninety minutes wasted: Leganes draw explained in 8 key observations
- Los Blancos will leave the city of Leganes with one point salvaged from a 1-1 result.
- The team have shown a bit of promise in the first ten minutes but struggled to anything memorable except Benzema's goal.
- Although our performance wasn't awful at the Butarque, calling it a good one would be just wrong.
Zidane is once again bombarded with questions to which he can only answer in hypotheticals and point towards the next season.
The manager chose to bench both Bale and Vazquez and even took Reguilon off the squad list for the match, with Isco and Asensio assuming the attacking roles.
Despite Asensio's drive and Isco's obvious dribbling skills, the duo didn't produce as some might've expected.
The introduction of Fede Valverde was positive as the youngster's speed and determination were seen throughout the whole nighty minutes.
Karim Benzema scored another goal which only benefits his own record this season. Don't take us wrong, the Frenchman was still one of the best players on the pitch with his efforts granting us a draw at least.
Dani Carvajal returned from injury and was running around the pitch like a maniac with his desire to play shining from the first minute.
Marcelo didn't disappoint and was usually on top of his opponents. No wonders in attack though.
Overall, the match was pretty uneventful. Sure, if you go into specifics of possession and attempts, we were better. The problem is, we're supposed to be better. So it would be strange to celebrate a 1-1 draw against, with all due respect, Leganes.
