Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale will be the key figures in turning the second half of Real Madrid's season around, according to head coach Zinedine Zidane.
Madrid are languishing 19 points behind rivals and runaway leaders Barcelona in La Liga, while Leganes humiliatingly dumped them out of the Copa del Rey last week.
However, back-to-back La Liga wins over Deportivo La Coruna and Valencia have plundered 11 goals, with Ronaldo hitting a brace in each match after falling below his customarily prolific levels so far this season.
"It's the same as always, he's always there," said Zidane of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner ahead of Saturday's trip to Levante.
"We are always going to ask more from Cristiano because he is the reference point for this team.
"When you finish a game, people can always say Cristiano could have done more.
"I'm happy with him and the others the same. When there are difficult moments that's part of a season. We have to be positive and, in the end, I don't look at the past.
"I look at the last game that we did in Valencia. That's positive and at Levante we have another game to show that we want more."
