It's all over! Real Madrid manage to hang onto lead despite Leganes thoroughly dominating the second period. Gabriel picks up a red card after the whistle for complaining to the referee.
A Leganes free-kick from deep comes to nothing. That looks to have been there last chance to draw level.
Two added minutes to be played.
Just under five minutes to go! Real Madrid are hanging on!
El Zhar delivers the ball from the left but there's too much on it. Theo nods away to safety.
Almost a wonder goal from Beauvue! The substitute catches Casilla off his line and goes for goal 40 yards out only to see his effort dip onto the roof of the net!
ALMOST THE EQUALISER! A deep cross bounces to the back post and is turned goalwards by Bustinza. Casilla paws the ball away to keep the score at 2-1.
Zaldua is booked for hacking down his marker on the right.
Bale's bending effort flies over the crossbar. Madrid need another goal here to calm the nerves.
Amrabat's low drive is held by Casilla. Twenty minutes remain and Leganes are gathering momentum.
GOAL! LEGANES! BRASANAC! He won't get an easier finish than that! Amrabat wriggles away from Theo on the right and squares the ball to Brasanac who, unchallenged, turns into an empty net. 2-1 - game on!

A lull in play here as Real Madrid seek to put their foot on the ball.
The Brazilian's free-kick is driven through the wall but a deflection takes the sting off it and Cuellar claims comfortably. Still 2-0 to Madrid!
Free-kick on the edge of the box for Madrid. Casemiro is stood over it.
Leganes try to force their way through the Madrid back-four but they stand tall.
El Zhar dinks an enticing cross into Guerrero who mistimes his header. The ball trickles to Casilla.
A positive start from Leganes who have boldly gone straight for the Madrid goal.
We're back underway! Can Leganes claw this one back?
That's all for the first half! 2-0 at the break, Zidane's men are cruising towards a textbook victory at the Bernabeu.
GOAL! MADRID! MAYORAL! Kovacic's cross is knocked beyond his own keeper by Bustinza for Mayoral to sweep in and pop the ball into an empty net. Bizarre scenes as the referee intially disallows the goal before changing his mind. 2-0!
Ceballos sees his name in lights and tries to curl an effort in from distance. His shot sails over the bar.
Llorente gives a friendly shove to a breaking Leganes player and concedes a free-kick on the right. El Zhar clips the ball in but it ends up in the safe grasp of Casilla.
LEGANES HIT THE BAR! Amrabat digs the ball out of his feet on the edge of the box and watches on as his effort clips the top of the bar. It was always rising.
Bale dazzles Rico with a few tidy step-over and feeds Ceballos who bends his strike straight into Cuellar's hands. The Leganes keeper didn't drop that one.
Real end-to-end action at the Bernabeu! Cuellar fumbles the ball and is beaten to it by Mayoral who's effort his cleared off the line!

SO CLOSE! Theo hacks at Rico's low cross and the ball whistles past the far post.
Amrabat cuts inside of Casemiro who cynically brings the winger down. Leganes have a free-kick just to the left of the box.
Bale launches one of his classic lightening runs down the right but he's pick-pocketed by Zaldua.
Leganes are now enjoying a share of the possession. Real's youngsters are keeping a rigid shape and foiling any potential attacks.
El Zhar flashes a cross in from the right but there's no-one in the middle to nod it goalwards for the visitors.
That goal has taken a lot of pressure off of Madrid. They are playing with confidence and purpose.
GOAL! MADRID! BALE! The No. 11 latches onto a loose ball on the edge of the six yard box and scuffs an overhead kick beyond Cuellar. Replays suggest the Welshman may have been offside but Real Madrid fans won't care. 1-0!
Achraf's determined run ends up in a brilliant last-ditch Leganes challenge in the box.
First shot of the game comes from Gareth Bale but he fails to get the curve he's looking for and the ball cannons into the stands behind the goal.
We're off at the Bernabeu!
With next week's Champions League semi-final in mind, Zidane has chosen to rest a lot of his stars for this clash. Lucas Modric and Toni Kroos are relegated to the bench. Cristiano Ronaldo is gets to put his feet up at home.
Leganes XI: Cuellas, Bustinza, Amrabat, Gabriel, Guerrero, El Zhar, Rico, Zaldua, Ruben Perez, Siovas, Darko.
Real Madrid XI: Casilla, Vallejo, Achraf, Casemiro, Theo Hernandez, Llorente, Kovacic, Ceballos, Bale, Mayoral, Benzema.
Good afternoon and welcome to our live feed of Real Madrid v Leganes! This will be the fourth and final time these two sides go head-to-head this season. Whilst 'Los Blancos' remain the favourites, Leganes will draw hope from their Copa del Rey heroics that saw Zidane's men go tumbling out of the competition.
