Real Madrid missed the chance to get within touching distance of Atletico Madrid as Zinedine Zidane's side were held to a 1-1 draw by Leganes in LaLiga.

"All of my players are important and good, but we are going to make changes", Zidane said on Sunday. He showed his personality and that's it, he's doing well for the team, he's doing a lot of goals.

The deadlock was broken on the stroke of halftime, but it was Leganes who went ahead as Braithwaite turned provider to pick out Jonathan Silva, who fired past Keylor Navas from the edge of the box.

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.

Youssef En-Nesyri thought he had clinched a famous win for Leganes late on, but the offside flag sparred Madrid's blushes in what was a frustrating outing for the visitors. "He is a fantastic player and this year what has changed is that he has scored many more goals, so I am happy for him".

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

Gareth Bale dropped to the bench after struggling in recent matches, while Thibaut Courtois and Toni Kroos were not included in the matchday squad. Today I wanted to make a change and that's it.

Well, it looks like Kroos has no intention of exiting the Santiago Bernabéu at the end of the season and took to Twitter to dismiss the report as "Absolutely false information".
