93' PEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! That's GAME OVER and Real Madrid climb to the 3rd spot on the La Liga Table.

No Ronaldo, no problem! Casemiro, Vazquez, Asensio, Kovacic and Benzema were the standout performers on the night. Ramos and Varane kept things tidy at the back and Madrid are looking more and more like the free-scoring juggernaut that sent shivers down the spine of the rest of the European heavyweights last season.

That's that from the yap centre. This is me Shambhu Ajith, signing off. Hope you've had fun. I did. You can find me on Twitter- @goddamnhunter.

Arrivederci!
...
92' With 15 minutes to go, Ceballos comes in for Kovacic.
...
92' Amrabat could have had a spectacular goal from almost nothing there. He just leathers it from 20 yards away with his left but it goes past the post and into the stands.
...
90' OH CAPTAIN! SERGIO RAMOS PLACES IT TO THE LEFT OF CUELLAR. IT'S STRUCK LOW INTO THE CORNER AND RUNS OFF TO THE CORNER FLAG TO... DAB. THAT'S RIGHT.
...
89' PENALTY FOR REAL MADRID! KOVACIC WINS IT FOR REAL MADRID AS HE IS BROUGHT DOWN INSIDE THE AREA. RAMOS TO TAKE IT.
...
88' OH GARETH! Lucas Vazquez with a lovely diagonal ball to Gareth Bale who whizzes past a defender before going for goal from 25 yards away, on the left side. He forces a save from Cuellar. Or did he? No. Great effort nonetheless.
...
86' The freekick comes in and Leganes deal with it but at the cost of a corner.
...
85' Substitution for Real Madrid.

Isco off. Marcos Llorente comes on.
...
85' Isco is shoved to the ground 40 yards away from goal and Madrid win a freekick.
...
84' Some Academy level acting from Cuellar, who goes down after a delightful tackle from Theo that only ever touched the ball, is rewarded with a yellow card.
...
83' Once again, it's Gareth Bale with a delightful ball into the box to find Isco. It's a difficult ball to control, however, and he doesn't really make anything from it. They win a corner but. The subsequent corner is heavyweight in nature and falls to Isco who is outside the area. But he goes for goal again but Ramos gathers it once again. And unfortunately, Gabriel catches one more where it really hurts.
...
81' Bale finds Isco on the edge of the area with a neat riven ball. Isco goes for goal as he tries to swing it into the far post but Cuellar hurls himself at it and keeps hold of the ball.
...
80' Ruben Perez goes for goal from 30 odd yards out and is too far wide off the mark to be subsequently met with happy teammates. He just looks at the ground and walks back. Wise lad.
...
78' Gareth Bale rushes into the attacking third but gets dispossessed. But the rebounded ball falls to Casemiro who can't really do much with it as he is bereft of options and Leganes kickstart another counter but Madrid put it out of danger.
...
77' Gareth Bale swipes the ball to his right to find Isco who once again loses the ball much to the frustration of his teammates. Just not Isco's night tonight.
...
76' Substitution for Real Madrid. An industrious Karim Benzema is replaced by Bale who doesn't look really interested in getting some game time tonight. 
...
75' Isco, once again being indecisive and slow on the ball. Asensio was free on the left flank and Isco is too slow to release him and he gets flagged offside.
...
74' Amrabat tries to combine with Rico to run into space on the left flank near the touchline but he is flagged offside. Oh well, he wasn't offside as Varane was playing him on. 
...
73' Theo is upto the task on the left side as El Zhar tries to go beyond him. 
...
72' One more Leganes attack is thwarted by the Madrid defence before it became threatening. 
...
71' Substitution for Leganes. Amrabat on for Omar Ramos.
...
70; Asensio and Benzema combine beautifully as the former has enough time and space on the ball on the left flank. He cuts it back for Benzema who runs over the ball and leaves it to Isco. But Isco's lobbed effort into the box to find a motoring Benzema is a touch too heavy and it runs out for a goalkick.
...
69' Beauvue loses his footing inside the area and Madrid break on the counter. Isco combines with Vazquez who finds Asensio in the attacking third. Asensio tees up Benzema who runs into the area and nearly slaloms past the Leganes defence. But the defenders hold fort and quell the threat.
...
68' Asensio's cross into the box from the left wing is poor and the Leganes players are already pushing up the pitch as Cuellar launches one into the attacking half.
...
67' Meanwhile, Gabriel has taken one for the team (where it really hurts) and has to walk off the pitch to free himself of the worst kindof pain known to man.
...
66' Yeah, it doesn't really look like a penalty. That won't be debated much tonight, it looks like.
...
65' Ruben with a  well-timed sliding tackle to win the ball in the centre of the park. El Zhar is brought down inside the area. No penalty says the referee.
...
64' Casemiro heads clear from the corner and Leganes play it far back to the goalkeeper and the crowd boos in disapproval. But yeah, Madrid need a third. They really do.
...
63' What a save by Casilla! Tito tees up El Zhar on the right wing. He swings one in for Beauvue who needs no invitation to go at goal. He connects well but Casilla comes up with a magnificent save to deny him the equalizer. There, I called it, lads.
...
61' I'm just starting to feel like Madrid have to score one more here as these Leganes players are well known for their energy levels and the relentless pressure they apply till the three long whistles at the end.
...
60' Ramos runs past 2 midfielders and runs into the attacking third and tries to combine with Benzema but Benzy just can't find the captain who was well on his way into the penalty area. Leganes counter but Casemiro gets back in time to help out and does his work effectively.
...
59' Dreadful passing at the back from Leganes, quite uncharacteristic of their performance so far in the second half as they gift Madrid possession once again.
...
59' Rico tries to whip one in from the left flank but his cross is wayward and Madrid have a goalkick.
...
58' Rico boots an inviting ball into the far post and the subsequent header is deflected out for a corner. Corner comes to nothing though.
...
56' Ramos is winning at defending. But it's a freekick for Leganes. I don't know what happened there. Ramos sprints back to stop El Zhar and they have an angry cuddle off of sorts on the right flank. Ramos protests and gets handed a yellow card. Iffy decision that.
...
55' One more unnecessary foul by Perez. They have been really scrappy in the first ten minutes of the second half.
...
54' Gabriel plays a neat ball to Rico who motors down the left flank to whip one in but Varane clears the danger and that's another attack that has bit the dust.
...
53' Isco once again being individualistic but he wins a freekick nonetheless.
...
52' Isco finds Benzema in the box. He lays it off to Casemiro who in turns tries to find Vazquez. The winger wins a corner and takes it short to Asensio. Asensio then tries to release Vazquez past the approaching defender but Vazquez is flagged offside. Bummer alert.
...
51' Rico shoves Varane to the ground and earns the first yellow card of the match. The match is getting scrappy and the whistle is being put to a great amount of use here. Not something a football fan would appreciate but eh, whatever.
...
50' Isco catches Perez and it really just looked like revenge more than anything.
...
49' Madrid try to work something as Isco tries to link up with Benzema at the edge of the area but Leganes crowd Benzema out and quell the danger.
...
48' Leganes keep pressing and Vazquez is kicked on the back of his leg by Eraso.
...
47' Leganes try to work something through the middle but Ramos is once again upto the task. Rico brings down Varane and Madrid have a freekick deep in their defensive half.
...
46' Real Madrid have picked off from where they left it as Vazquez once again finds a lot of space on the right flank to exploit. But Leganes see off the danger.
...
Substitutions for Leganes!
Mantovani and Perez on for Siovas and Gumbau
...
PEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! And we're off in the second half.
...
PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! That's that in the first half! 
...
43' Leganes showing more signs of life but Madrid take control once again. Asensio runs at Bustinza on the left flank. They recycle the ball around but the cross into the area is not met by Asensio as it goes over his feet.
...
41' Diego Rico tries to whip a grounded ball into the area but Carvajal once again pummels it out for a corner. Yet another corner kick that is not dealt with well by Real Madrid but they somehow get rid of it.
