Real Madrid face Leganes at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday, April 28. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
If Barcelona win or draw the day after Real Madrid face Leganes, Madrid will officially be out of the title race. At this point, Zinedine Zidane’s best bet for winning silverware is through the Champions League. Madrid won 2-1 away from home against Bayern in the first leg of the semifinal, and they’ll likely prepare a much weakened/rotated squad to face Leganes to give their starters rest come next Tuesday. Madrid are four points behind Atletico with a game in hand, so second place is still in the equation. Obviously, that’s not the first priority, so this match is essentially a warm-up to their Champions League battle.
Leganes are just about guaranteed safety this season, sitting on 40 points, 12 above 18th place with four matches left to play. Unless Deportivo go on a scoring spree with four straight wins, Leganes are not going anywhere next season. They will likely face a rotational squad against Real Madrid due to their Champions League match, so this contest could be one to snatch while their guard is down.
The La Liga match between Real Madrid and Leganes will be broadcast live on beIN Sports. Live streaming is available on beIn Sports connect, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscriptions, either online or through the beIN Sports app.
Real Madrid’s focus will be three days from Saturday and will likely feature a rotated squad, so Leganes could sneak one past them.
