  • Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard speak out after Gareth Bale's Real Madrid snub

In any of the Federation Internationale de Football Association games you always know you've got one more chance to score a goal as long as you keep the ball in the final third of the pitch, once it goes clear you know the "ref" will blow the whistle.

Real Madrid host Leganes at the Bernabeu where only a win for the hosts will keep alive their minuscule hopes of maintaining a La Liga title bid.

It might not have been the most dramatic bicycle-kick in the business but Bale nevertheless managed to acrobatically turn the ball into the net with just four minutes on the clock after Karim Benzema's initial effort had fallen helpfully into his path. Leganes cut the deficit in half in the 66th minute.

Madrid won 2-1 away from home against Bayern in the first leg of the semifinal, and they'll likely prepare a much weakened/rotated squad to face Leganes to give their starters rest come next Tuesday. Playing with a second string side, Real Madrid made the most of their chances and raced to a 2-0 lead at the break.

Speaking on the player's condition at Santiago Bernabeu, Ferdinand told BT Sport, "One thing we were all talking about here in the studio before the game finished, making those substitutions and Gareth Bale doesn't get on the pitch is a huge statement". "I am happy with the attitude of my players, it has been exemplary".

"We need them and I'll do everything possible so that they know that they're important and that they're not affected by whats said on the outside". Casemiro was the only player to start in both matches.

"You're going to make me emotional if we start to think about that or talk about that right now", Spoelstra said. It wasn't quite as impressive as his 28-point effort in Game 2, but he still looked a lot like the old Wade .
