Real beat Leganes, jump to 3rd in Liga

23 Février 2018

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.

He made a flying start in his first game back in La Liga with two headed goals in his Girona debut in a 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid and has scored three times in his last two games as his side beat Athletic Bilbao 2-0 and Leganes 3-0.

Bale wasn't called upon to start against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League and was also on the bench against Real Sociedad and Leganes. "I don't think he has run out of credit, or that he's in a bad moment", Arbeloa said at a presentation of Mambo FC web series, as quoted by the Daily Mail. According to reports, the 23-year-old has asked the club to give him an extension worth at least £280,000 per week and given his form, it feels like the right move.

"I am happy with Bale, we have to take it slowly with him". "We have to go bit by bit with him".

Real Madrid will look to consolidate their position in La Liga when they host Alaves at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.

There was a time when the so-called "BBC" - Bale, Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo - was not open to negotiation at Real Madrid: if the trio were fit they played every big game. "We got back to third place and now we will try to reach second place".

Despite the likes of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Marcelo being out through injury, Zidane still elected to rest Ronaldo and first-choice goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

Zidane said his side were also in decent form: "Twenty-six goals in our last six games is very good".

A victory over Leganes in midweek cemented their place in the Champions League spots, pulling them nine points clear of fifth placed Sevilla. "But I am interested in the squad, not just one or two players".

The Welsh worldwide, who moved to the Santiago Bernabeu from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, has struggled with injuries in the last three campaigns.

The winger provided a goal and assist on Wednesday taking his overall goal-scoring tally to eight for the season.
