Real Madrid are currently table toppers in La Liga Santander on the basis of goal difference. The Whites got the better of Getafe and Girona by 2-0 and 4-1 margins respectively. So far this season, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal have all scored in the league for the Whites.
This will be Real Madrid’s last season before heading into the season’s first international break and the Whites will be hoping to make the most out of it by claiming another win. The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium will play host to Leganes who will be hoping to claim at least one point.
Madrid’s neighbours are yet to win at the Santiago Bernabeu in the La Liga but did claim their scalp by a 2-1 score in last year’s Copa del Rey. As Julen Lopetegui’s side seeks to claim three points, we take a look at the Whites’ likely eleven.
Goalkeeper- Keylor Navas
Keylor Navas has showed his resilience in an even more instinctive manner since Thibaut Courtois’ arrival. The Costa Rican is in top form for the Whites and only claimed the UEFA Best Goalkeeper’s Award for 2017/18 on Thursday.
He is performing well and giving a real selection headache to Julen Lopetegui, who himself was a goalkeeper in the past. With a superb performance and arguably one of his recent bests, Navas is the top candidate to guard the sticks before the Whites head off for international commitments for the next two weeks.
