Cristiano Ronaldo and Carvajal could face Leganes

Cristiano Ronaldo and Carvajal could face Leganes

With no yellow cards coming their way in the win over Alaves, Cristiano Ronaldo and Dani Carvajal have made themselves available for selection against Leganes on Wednesday night.

The right-back is stuck on nine bookings for the LaLiga season but would like a run-out at Estadio Butarque, his hometown stadium, having also faced Los Pepineros as a Castilla player.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo escaped a fifth yellow card on Sunday and could face the newly-promoted side that represent something of a banana skin for Los Blancos.

As ever, the call rests at Zinedine Zidane’s desk with the risk of a suspension for the subsequent match versus Atletico Madrid likely to be at the forefront of his mind.

The Frenchman could also choose to rest either player after the 3-0 beating of Alaves, even though Carvajal was taken out of the starting XI for that clash, which he entered early on due to Raphael Varane’s injury.
