Real Madrid v Celta Vigo Preview

The UEFA Champions League semi-finalists host Celta Vigo at the Bernabeu On Saturday as they resume their LaLiga campaign. The Los Blancos proved too strong for the Blues from England as they emerged victorious 2-0 both home and away in the UCL quarter-finals against Chelsea. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are 11 points behind league leaders Barcelona with 9 games in hand. It’ll take a significant slip-up by Xavi’s men for Real Madrid to have any chance of winning the LaLiga. On the other hand, their rivals Atletico Madrid are breathing down their neck – sitting third with just a two point deficit over their bitter rivals. Although the Copa Del Rey and the UEFA Champions League will be a priority, Ancelotti’s men cannot be taking a casual approach towards the LaLiga, despite confirming their spot in the top four. With the second-best home record in the division picking 31 points from 14 games, Real Madrid will be favorites here to win this game. It won’t be a surprise to see Karim Benzema not feature in the lineup after taking a blow to his foot late on against Chelsea.

It has been more or less a successful campaign for Celta Vigo currently sitting 12th in the LaLiga table with 36 points. There shouldn’t be any fears of relegation with a game in hand and an eight-point gap between themselves and 18th placed Espanyol. In fact, with just a two-point deficit over Girona at 9th, Celta Vigo will be looking to push on for a top half finish. However, Carlos Carvajal’s men haven’t been in the best of form lately, winless in the LaLiga for over a month now. They historically haven’t had a good record against Real Madrid too, losing all of their last five meetings.
