Leganes vs Real Madrid: Asensio nets winner for Zidane’s men


Marco Asensio scored late for Real Madrid, as they won 1-0 at Leganes, in the first leg lead of their Copa del Rey quarter-final on Thursday night.
Manager Zinedine Zidane rested a lot of his first team stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, etc for the game.
Only Carvajal and Raphael Varane were selected to start at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque.
But it was Mateo Kovavic who spurned a great opportunity for Real, whose goalkeeper Kiko Casilla made a good save to deny Claudio Beauvue after 75 minutes.
Asensio eventually netted the win in the 89th minute, meeting Theo Hernandez’s cross with a superb volley.
The second leg comes up next Wednesday at the Santiago Bernabeu.
