THE PREDICTION

With Cristiano Ronaldo gone, the Real Madrid faithful are looking for a new goalscoring hero and Welsh international Gareth Bale is doing his best to fulfil that role with 12 goals in his last 14 La Liga appearances. He can add to Leganes' early-season problems here and fire Madrid to victory in what should be a relatively comfortable victory for the hosts.
