PREVIEW: Real Madrid come back to Santiago Bernabéu


Real Madrid will play this weekend against Celta de Vigo. The team managed by Zinedine Zidane arrives in a very good moment. Last week Real Madrid won and played a very complete match against Real Sociedad in Anoeta. On Saturday it´s a good chance to give a good show to Real Madrid fans who will go to Santiago Bernabéu.

Zidane will play with a very similar team as the one he chose in San Sebastian. With the injures of Benzema an Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid knew how to substitute them. Gareth Bale was the reference in the attacking line of Los Blancos. Morata, who substituted Benzema, did the same rol as we usually see the French striker. He didn’t score any goal but he didn´t stop associating with his team mates and helped them keeping the ball. Asensio was the great surprise in this match. There were doubts if Lucas Vázquez was going to be in the starting 11 but finally Zidane gave the chance to the young Majorcan midfielder. He scored a wonderful goal, making an incredible control and finishing as few players can do.

The team managed by Berizzo didn´t start the league as they wanted. Celta de Vigo lost his first match against a team debutant in the first division, Leganés. The team from Madrid played a very serious match and could achieve his first victory in the top division. With the sign of Nolito to Manchester City, the attack of Celta de Vigo has lost a lot of power. The reference players in the attack are Aspas and Orellana. Both are great strikers but we don´t know if it´s enough for winning in Santiago Bernabeu. Last year Celta finished sixth in the league and they will play this year in Europe. If Celta play as well as last year Los Blancos will have a difficult game and they shpuld be focused if they want the three points.

Real Madrid Possible XI: Casilla; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Kovacic, Asensio, Bale, Morata.

Celta de Vigo possible XI: Sergio, Jonny, Roncaglia, Cabral, Mallo, Wass, Pablo Hernandez, Orellana, Sisto, Bongonda, Aspas
