Madrid, who obviously took the Catalans much more serious after losing their affair at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi last season, turned things around with two penalties before Gareth Bale has out them into the safe waters striking team’s third goal just before the hour-mark.

Karim Benzema completed a brace to set the final score 1-4 and boost up his confidence ahead of the third round tie with Leganes on Saturday evening at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

The Legionaries’ visit will be a great opportunity for Julen Lopetegui and his men to maintain the perfect record at the start of the new Primera Division season.

Leganes are struggling to keep things tight at the back at the start of the campaign as they shipped two goals in each of matches against Basque sides Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad in opening two rounds.

However, they will travel to the capital with a somewhat improved confidence after Nabil El Zhar managed to save them a point with a late brace which brought Mauricio Pellegrino’s side on level terms against Txuri-Urdinak on Friday evening.

Real Madrid vs Leganes: Head-to-head

Real Madrid won five and lost one of six meetings with the Legionaries.

It is interesting to note that four of last five games saw goals at both ends, meaning the value could be found in backing Real Madrid to win & BTTS at 3.00 odds here.

Real Madrid vs Leganes: Prediction

We could really be in for a high-scoring contest on Saturday evening. Leganes showed vulnerabilities at the back against Bilbao and Sociedad and we just can’t see them stopping the in-form Benzema-Bale duo in Real’s attacking line.

The best value can be found in backing two or more goals in the first half at 1.90 odds, while you can obviously also shoot for four or more goals in the entire match at the same odds.

Bale notched goals against both Getafe and Girona, but he is only 1.44 to do the same against the Legionaries.

Real Madrid vs Leganes: Bet Tips

Over 1.5 Goals in the first half @ 10/11 (1.95)

Over 3.5 goals FT @ 10/11 (1.94).
