Real Madrid's Thibaut Courtois sidelined with hip injury

Real Madrid now sit 10 points off LaLiga Santander leaders Barcelona after a poor first half of the season and Sergio Ramos has called for the team to unite with the fans to try to turn the situation around.

Vinicius Junior has the personality required to thrive at a club like Real Madrid, according to Emilio Butragueno.

The Real Madrid captain scooped the prestigious prize for his successes on the pitch and his work in promoting sports in the Spanish capital over the years. "But we know anything can happen, we saw what they did to us past year".

Madrid opened the scoring via Sergio Ramos' 44th-minute penalty - controversially awarded for a foul on Alvaro Odriozola by Gerard Gumbau.

A mistake made by the Leganes back line was capitalized upon by Karim Benzema who passed the ball to Vinicius Junior.

Real Madrid's injury worries have deepened after goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois suffered a pelvic muscle injury.

Last season, Madrid were stunned 2-1 at home by Leganes and went out on away goals despite having won the first leg 1-0, and Butragueno was keen to guard against another shock in the return fixture next week.

"Both teams had chances of winning this match", Atletico coach Diego Simeone said.

The Bernabeu recorded its lowest turn out with 44,231 in attendance, as a few came to see their team carry a three-goal advantage to the second leg.

There were also lukewarm chants at the Bernabeu during last weekend's 2-0 loss to Real Sociedad but a more noticeable one filled the air in the midweek clash.
