Zinedine Zidane does not seem to be free from pressure. The head coach of France is again feeling dizzy because several Real Madrid pillars may be absent when entertaining Leganes.
Real Madrid admits they have allowed the core players time to rest for a week. This luxury can be obtained by Eden Hazard et al because the El Clasico schedule against Barcelona was postponed to 18 December.
James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, and Raphael Varane reported that they still had to train separately at the training center in Valdebebas. While Luka Modric is almost certainly absent.
In addition to Modric, Bale is also likely still unable to appear. They also did not play when Real Madrid beat Galatasaray 1-0 in the Champions League. That is, Zidane will still see its progress before making a decision.
Zidane does not want to act hastily by playing Modric and Bale if he is not fully fit. You see, Real Madrid is still faced with a busy schedule where after this will be against Real Betis, Galatasaray, and Eibar.
The good news, Nacho and Lucas Vazquez who is absent in Turkey are in shape. That means Zidane can play both at a meeting with Leganes. It is hoped that this will increase the chance of reaching full points again in La Liga which was previously humiliated by Real Mallorca 0-1.
