"All of my players are important and good, but we are going to make changes", Zidane said on Sunday. The first half was not so good, the second a bit better.

UNITED target Gareth Bale is reportedly heading out of Real Madrid this summer.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Karim Benzema saved Real Madrid from the jaws of defeat with his 18th goal of the campaign as they battled Leganes to a 1-1 draw in a tough LaLiga on Monday, April 15, at Estadio Municipal de Butarque.

The performance sees the Los Blancos fall 13 points adrift of La Liga leaders Barcelona and four points off city rivals Atletico in second spot.

For Leganes, Jonathan Silva fired the first goal of the match in the 45th minute, which was their first chance of the game.

It appears that Real Madrid will go trophy-less this season following a poor showing in La Liga and being dumped out of the UEFA Champions League by Ajax.

Karim Benzema equalised at the start of the second half and Marcelo saw a shot tipped away as Madrid enjoyed a short period in ascendancy.


With Spanish media reporting that Madrid are looking to replace Benzema in the summer, Zidane was questioned over whether the talk had affected the 31 year-old striker. "In the end, he is a fantastic player and this year he has changed, which means more goals", he told a news conference.

"We focus on ourselves and hopefully whoever the club decide to bring in - if they do - helps us".

Wales global Gareth Bale was a late substitute, only had four touches in 12 minutes, and walked straight down the tunnel at the final whistle.

"The changes will be made known at the end of the season".

"We didn't control the match like I wanted", admitted Emery.

"We have our pride and our love for this shirt, which is worth more than any title", Navas said.
