The new champion will seek to stretch his full victory since soccer resumed when he faced the Pepineros on the last day of La Liga.
Already with the title of The league in the pocket, Real Madrid returns to the field of play and debuts as champion in this Sunday’s match against Leganes for the last day of the competition.
The merengue team comes from sentencing La Liga on the last day, with the victory against Villarreal that allowed it to cut the hegemony of Barcelona and obtain its first domestic title after three years.
Those of Zinedine Zidane were by far the best team since soccer resumed: they won ten out of ten and grew in all aspects of the game, from the goalkeeper, with an impenetrable Courtois, to Benzema, who was consecrated in one of his best seasons since he is in the White House.
For the game against the Pepineros, Zidane decided to leave Gareth Bale, James Rodríguez and Eden Hazard out of the squad. The former are not surprising and will surely leave the merengue set next season. Meanwhile, Hazard still can’t find consistency and has already declared that this has been the worst season of his career.
The important thing for the Belgian winger, also, will be to reach their best when Real Madrid returns to see action for the Champions League in August in Lisbon, where they will try to turn the round of 16 against Manchester City.
Leganes: Cuellar; Ruibal, Rosales, Siovas, Tarín, Marc Navarro; Roque Mesa, Bryan Gil, Amadou, Eraso; Warrior.
Real Madrid: Areola; Lucas Vázquez, Militao, Sergio Ramos, Mendy; Valverde, Kroos, Isco; Marco Asensio, Vinicius, Benzema.
