Zinedine Zidane hopes from Real Madrid victory

Jan 19, 2018

Zinedine Zidane believes a last-gasp victory at Leganes in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals could prove to be a turning point for Real Madrid, who broke a three-game winless streak thanks to a 1-0 success.

Leganes had impressed in their maiden appearance at this stage of the competition, Jose Naranjo and Claudio Beauvue forcing a good save from Kiko Casilla, with Madrid appearing toothless in the absence of star forward Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, and Karim Benzema.

But Marco Asensio’s first goal in 10 appearances, breaking his longest drought for Madrid by flicking in a terrific first-time finish from a Theo Hernandez cross in the 89th minute, ensured Zidane’s men take a narrow advantage into Wednesday’s second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.
