Real Madrid v Celta de Vigo Preview
Zinedine Zidane’s side play again at Santiago Bernabéu after travelling twice to Sevilla to face Sampaoli’s team. Los Blancos drew in Copa del Rey and went through the next round but they lost (2-1) in La Liga despite leading the game until the 85th minute. Sergio Ramos own goal and Jovetic ended with a 40 games unbeaten run.
Without the record, Los Blancos need to be back on track to qualify for the semifinals of Copa del Rey. Celta is a tough team and they put Los Blancos in trouble in La Liga. Zidane usually rotates the players in Copa del Rey, but this time he’s expected to put in the pitch a more competitive squad. Lucas Vázquez, Kovacic or Kiko Casilla could be in the team.
Celta are in a great run and they’ve won their last 5 games in all competitions. The start of 2017 has been stunning, with Iago Aspas competing at a great level. The Chilean playmaker Orellana is out of the team after an argument with Berizzo. Beauvue is the only player out for injury problems.
