Zidane elects to give two of his star attacking players a break, ahead of a crucial game against Atletico Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale will both miss Real Madrid's clash with Leganes, the club has announced.
The current league leaders, who could be second by the time they start, found it necessary to rest their key players, considering the crucial matches they have to play against Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid this April.

Meanwhile, the only injury problem Los Blancos are forced to tackle ahead of this encounter is Raphael Varane's, who limped out of Saturday's victory against Deportivo Alaves. It's safe to say, however, that Zidane's rotation policy is boring fruits for the club, as almost all they key players are fit to compete, despite going through an energy draining international break. They may go on to win more trophies this season if their current fitness and form continues.
