Zinedine Zidane "angry" with himself following slender win over Leganes

  • Gareth Bale Zinedine Zidane

Real boss Zinedine Zidane rested Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos for this one as they eye their Champions League return match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday May 1.

Madrid is trying to return to the European final for the fourth time in five seasons. He picked up a knock during the first leg and was substituted off for Asensio, who may get to take his place in the starting line up.

Bale was one of the new faces and he hooked home from six yards before Borja Mayoral converted a second from a yard. Playing with a second string side, Real Madrid made the most of their chances and raced to a 2-0 lead at the break.

The southern Madrid club dropped to 16th in the 20-team standings and is not fully clear of relegation with three matches left.

The players were absolutely fuming and that led to Gabriel Pires being sent off for his protests to the ref. Unless Deportivo go on a scoring spree with four straight wins, Leganes are not going anywhere next season.

"We can't be happy with how things unfolded in La Liga", Zidane said. "We can not be happy with what we have done in La Liga because we lost many points at the beginning".

The gifted 21-year-old has only made a handful of appearances for Madrid since his £14.5 million move to the Bernabeu and his career is in severe danger of stalling.

Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella was sacked on Saturday because of poor results, and replaced by Joaquin Caparros, who coached the team in the early 2000s. A win here puts them within a point.

The home squad took the advantage into the locker room at halftime.

Earlier on Saturday, Athletic Bilbao midfielder Mikel San Jose scored two own goals as his side slipped to a 3-1 defeat at Real Sociedad in Saturday's Basque country derby.
