Real Madrid stars to miss tonight’s Copa del Rey fixture against Leganés

By Himanshu Sharma @boringcricket

Real Madrid boss Santiago Solari has announced the squad that would face Leganes in the round of 16 second leg Copa del Rey fixture against Leganés at Butarque.

Benzema OUT, Sergio Ramos rested against Leganes

There is no place for Karim Benzema and captain Sergio Ramos in the released squad for Copa del Rey fixture. Real Madrid are leading 3-0 after the first leg result and manager Scolari wants to use this as an opportunity to give game time to some of the other players.

Karim Benzema suffered a finger injury against Real Betis on Monday (Jan. 14) and is not 100% for the fixture. Lucas Vázquez, Vinicius Jr. and Cristo are the three forwards who will take a trip to Butarque.

Injury concerns before Solari

Santiago Solari will be without Gareth Bale, Marcos Llorente, Toni Kroos, Thibaut Courtois, Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio and Jesus Vallejo, with all been sidelined through injuries.

REAL MADRID SQUAD for Copa del Rey round of 16 second leg match against Leganés:
Goalkeepers:  Keylor Navas, Luca and Altube.
Defenders: Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Odriozola, Reguilón and Javi Sánchez
Midfielders: Casemiro, Valverde, Isco, Ceballos, Brahim and Jaume
Forwards: Lucas Vázquez, Vinicius Jr. and Cristo
