The match Celta de Vigo v Real Madrid will be postponed because of the weather. The heavy rain and the wind of Galicia in the recent days has caused hundred of incidents in the north of Spain. One of them is the game that will be postponed between the team managed by Zidane and Celta, that should have been played today (19:45 UK time) at Balaídos. Celta de Vigo stadium is very damaged and La Liga has decided not to risk and postpone the game. This will be the second game that will be suspended in this week end because the Deportivo de la Coruña v Betis will be also postponed.
The stadium can not be fixed until Tuesday because it has many damaged areas and the heavy rain is very dangerous even for firefighters. Now both clubs and La Liga must find a new date for the match and it will not be easy, because Los Blancos have already postponed one match of the regular season against Valencia and both teams are playing European competitions. Reason why Real Madrid did everything possible to provide solutions to play the game, but Balaídos was never a good option because Vigo’s mayor said that it was impossible to play in these conditions and that they will not risk the Celta’s supporters and players security.
These are not good news for Real Madrid because they were going to play against a team that was focused in the second leg of La Copa del Rey on Wednesday. Celta de Vigo is currently playing the semifinals of la Copa and they were going to play with an unusual lin-up against the team managed by Zinedine Zidane. It was a good chance to win at Balaídos, because it’s a very tough stadium to achieve the three points. The Galician team are playing a good football in their stadium, where they have only lost three games in the regular season at Balaídos.
