Real Madrid will hope to return to winning ways in La Liga when they host bottom-of-the-league Leganes at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.
Los Blancos beat Turkish side Galatasaray in the Champions League in their last game courtesy of a first-half Toni Kroos strike.
The result came after a disappointing 1-0 defeat - their first in La Liga this season - away at Mallorca which saw Barcelona take Madrid's place at the summit of the league table.
Despite going domestically unbeaten prior to the reverse in Mallorca, Madrid's season has been somewhat underwhelming, drawing two of their opening three league games and keeping just three clean sheets in nine La Liga matches.
Zinedine Zidane's side were scheduled to face Barcelona in El Clasico, but political protests in the city of Barcelona meant that the game had to be postponed, leaving both clubs one game behind the rest of the league.
Instead they play Leganes, whose first win of the season against the side that ended Real's unbeaten run was not enough to lift them off the foot of the table.
Leganes have amassed just five points, losing seven of their 10 games so far and scoring just five goals in the process.
A win could have seen them go 19th in the table on goal difference, but Espanyol also won to maintain their three-point lead.

Leganes form: DDLLLW
Zidane is without Alvaro Odriozola after the right-back was sent off in the defeat to Mallorca, meaning that Dani Carvajal will keep his place in the side.
Gareth Bale is also sidelined with a calf issue sustained on international duty with Wales.
Leganes boss Luis Cembranos has a lengthy injury list to contend with as a number of his squad have suffered long-term issues.
Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos; Rodrygo, Benzema, Hazard
Leganes possible starting lineup:
Cuellar; Rosales, Bustinza, Siovas, Silva; Mesa, Rivera, Recio; Arnaiz, Carrilo, Braithwaite
We say: Real Madrid 2-0 Leganes
Real Madrid are far from flying, but they certainly have enough quality to pick up what should be a routine home win against the side bottom of La Liga. Los Blancos will be eyeing a clean sheet as well against a team that have netted just five goals in 10 games.
