Hamstring woes bench Cristiano Ronaldo against Leganes game

Hamstring woes bench Cristiano Ronaldo against Leganes game

Cristiano Ronaldo and Keylor Navas have been given the night off with Kiko Casilla to play in goal for the first time since Real Madrid's elimination from the Copa del Rey at the hands of the same opposition.

The Brazilian midfielder created the 11th-minute equaliser as Spain winger Lucas Vazquez continued his impressive recent form and converted a glorious victor before the half hour. Madrid is seven points behind second-place Atletico Madrid.

Real Madrid's Spanish defender Sergio Ramos (C) celebrates with teammates after scoring during the game.

As for Real, they will be without Toni Kroos, who remains absent with a knee injury, while Marcelo's hamstring injury in Sunday's clash with Real Betis has put him on the sidelines. That allowed Vazquez to slide Casemiro into space, and he finished with aplomb.

Madrid were comfortably on top as the half wound down, with Benzema nearly heading a third from Lucas' cross.

With Zidane's men having enjoyed a measure of control after the home side's early flurry, Leganes boss Asier Garitano made a double change at the break when he replaced Siovas and midfielder Gerard Gumbau with Martin Mantovani and Ruben Perez.

Ramos scored from the penalty spot after Mateo Kovacic was pushed inside the area in the closing minutes.

Marcelo was one of Real's best performers in the 3-1 win at the Santiago Bernabeu last week and scored the final goal of the game to give them a two-goal cushion in the tie.

The Wales worldwide nearly picked out the bottom corner after springing the offside trap, but it was Ramos who grasped the ball and made no mistake when Diego Rico bundled Kovacic to the floor.
