Bale helps Los Blancos past Leganes

Gerrard says it must be a'concern for Bale if Karim Benzema is getting on instead of him

Çakir, 41, has been handed several high-profile games in recent seasons and has been a Uefa Elite official since 2010.

Real Madrid's focus will be three days from Saturday and will likely feature a rotated squad, so Leganes could sneak one past them. Gareth Bale and Borja Mayoral scored for the home side. Leganes lost the ball on the defensive end on that play.

Zinedine Zidane only played Casemiro from his regular starting 11, with his attention clearly focused on Tuesday's Champions League semifinal at home to Bayern Munich in which Madrid defend a 2-1 first leg but his side opened the scoring through Gareth Bale in the 8th minute.

There was a sense of confusion as Mayoral doubled Real Madrid's lead on the stroke of half-time against Leganes, with the linesman initially ruling out the close-range finish for offside before consulting with the referee.

Manchester United have been regularly linked with a move to sign the former PFA player of the year from Real Madrid since Jose Mourinho took over the reins at Old Trafford in May 2016.

Additionally, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra wasn't in much of a mood to address the topic, either, after Game 5. There was plenty of reaction to Wade's future. "Ain't gonna be no breaking news", said Wade .

"I don't know how significant the first-leg advantage will be in the Champions League. I ask my players to play like they have never done in their history, because we are going to need it to reach the final", Zidane told reporters.

Zidane went on to address the speculation surrounding two-thirds of the famed BBC trio, claiming that each player, including Bale and Benzema is important in the run-in, and neither of them is affected by the rumours surrounding their futures.

In actual reality the man in black will often wait as long as possible on an attack before he has to blow the whistle, without keeping the game alive just for the sake of waiting and we all know most final whistles happen after a goal kick.

"We can be happy because some of the younger lads got a chance to play today".
