Leganes 1 Real Madrid 1: In-form Benzema secures point for Zidane's side

Real were playing in their first Monday night La Liga game, a slot not usually reserved for the league's big names, in more than four years.

Courtois: "He's not well, it's not just one problem it's two or three".

Jonathan Silva scored for Leganes in the waning seconds of the first half when the defender curled a shot past Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas inside the box.

He's been at Madrid five years and has done great things for us.

Leganes might even have won it after Jonathan Silva gave them the lead shortly before half-time and while Benzema scored his 26th goal of the season, Madrid never looked like finding a victor. "Even if this might have been a bad season, we must all give a bit more". So far it has been a season worthy of note for me as a player.

NBA Playoffs shootaround: opening round preview and predictions
Oklahoma City will take on the Milwaukee Bucks who possess an NBA-best 60-21 record meaning that a victory is far from assured. By no means is that his fault, but the fact of the matter is Boston doesn't have time to wait for Hayward to be fully healthy.

Karim Benzema drew Real Madrid level six minutes into the second-half from a tight-angle rebound after Ivan Cuellar blocked the Frenchman's initial shot.

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale is reportedly heading out of the Spanish club this summer as he is not in Zinedine Zidane's plan for next season. "There will be changes but not right now, at the end of the season".

Leganes, though, were otherwise rarely made to feel uncomfortable and shortly before half-time they took the lead.

Zidane strode down the tunnel at half-time and his team emerged with greater objective afterwards, with Benzema finding an equaliser six minutes in.

Leganes, 11th in the table, went close to winning the game but Youssef En-Nesyri had a goal correctly disallowed for offside.
