Madrid disappoint again in dreary draw with Leganes

Real, who were also knocked out of the UEFA Champions League at the last-16 stage by Ajax Amsterdam, put in the kind of lethargic performance which has plagued their season, with Marco Asensio and Raphael Varane missing good first-half chances.

Real Madrid needed Karim Benzema to salvage a 1-1 draw at Spanish league minnow Leganes on Monday.

As quoted by ESPN, the Frenchman said: "For me as coach, and them as players, we must keep trying to play better".

Leganes picked up a first ever La Liga point against neighbours Real Madrid in a deserved draw.

The result means Real trail second-placed Atletico Madrid by four points - and leaders Barcelona by 13 - with six games remaining. "We have to try and perform better because it's our duty".

Bale played only the last 10 minutes against Leganes and, after falling out with the fans this season, he could be one of the stars the club will look to move on. "We have to give a little bit more".

Asked if Benzema annoyed by persistent talk that the Bernabeu hierarchy would sign a new striker this summer, Zidane said: "I don't know - you'd have to ask him about that".

Zinedine Zidane has openly admitted that Real Madrid are going to be particularly busy in this summer's transfer market.

Carvajal went on to praise Karim Benzema, who scored his 27th goal of the season across all competitions over the weekend.

"He's used to that, to the rumours that players are coming, but for him it does not change anything".

Silva headed straight at Navas and Youssef En-Nesyri had a goal correctly ruled out for offside late on. Today I wanted to make a change, that's all.

"Whenever I get the opportunity to play I do the best I can. But we have to be professional and win the games we have left". "We are proud of this shirt and we love it".
