Line-ups: Madrid-Leganes

Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale start for a second-string Real Madrid against Leganes in La Liga this evening.

The pair's inclusion comes as Zinedine Zidane rests Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo, with Tuesday's Champions League semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich in mind, while Nacho Fernandez, Dani Carvajal and Isco are injured.

Madrid's lack of options at the back forces Marcos Llorente to drop into central defence alongside Jesus Vallejo. Further afield, Dani Ceballos is given a rare chance in the middle of the park, as is Borja Mayoral up top.

Leganes, for their part, won 2-1 the last time they played at the Santiago Bernabeu and look to be safe from relegation as they sit 12 points clear of Deportivo La Coruna with only four games left.
