Real Madrid visit Celta Vigo trying to take advantage of the game at hand they have to play in La Liga. Los Blancos are leading the table and a win tonight would allow them to clinch La Liga title with a draw next Sunday at Malaga.
REAL MADRID FC
It has turned out to be a possible masterstroke by Fiorentino Perez for promoting Zinedine Zidane to the head coach, as the senior team is on its way to a probable League and Champions league double on his very first full season in charge of Los Blancos senior team. He has created a ruthless attacking machine that has scored in all the matches across all the competitions this season. With an extremely capable group of squad players, he has made sure that all his players stay fresh and he is able to cope with any injury troubles too. As they get ready to visit Celta, it is important for the Los Blancos to grab all three points as that would give them a 3 point lead over title rivals Barcelona.
With Zidane’s squad mixing grit and scrappy wins along with confident, swashbuckling victories, it has been clear that most of the times, we can expect them to take full points from a match no matter what is the overall performance. Sitting in the 2nd position of the Spanish La Liga, the Los Blancos have collected 87 points in the league, with 46 of them coming at home. They have won 4 of their last 5 league games, losing the other one. Their most frequent score of this season has been a 2:1 victory. The Madrid club won their last match against Sevilla, by the score 4:1, their last home game of the season. Before that, they thrashed Granada 4:0.
Real Madrid predicted XI: Keylor Navas, Danilo, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modric, Kroos, Isco, Ronaldo, Benzema.
CELTA DE VIGO
This has indeed been a below par season for Celta de Vigo. A decent start, where they mixed up scoring goals and good build up play, started to falter, and now as the Spanish La Liga season comes to a close their final performances have been below the usual standards. They were knocked out by Manchester United in the Europa League Semifinals, and they have been pretty poor in the league most recently. With two matches left, Celta will definitely want to get better results for the fans, but a midweek fixture against the Los Blancos won’t really be their preferred match up.
Sitting in the bottom half of the Spanish la liga table at the 13th position, Celta has accrued 44 points. 26 of these points have been won in front of the home crowd. The Celestes have been in very poor form in the league of late. They have lost all of their last 5 league games, and that run seems to continue in the coming fixture too. A 3:1 away loss to Deportivo Alaves was preceded by a 3:0 away loss against Malaga. Celta has also failed to score in their last three home games, and conceded at least 1 goal in the same matches.
Celta predicted XI: Alvarez, Mallo, Roncaglia, Cabral, Jonny, Hernandez, Radoja, Aspas, Wass, Sisto, Guidetti.
CELTA DE VIGO vs. REAL MADRID FC MATCH PREDICTION
Even though Real Madrid might change the starting line-up, keeping in mind that this match is sandwiched between two weekend fixtures, it is still difficult to envisage anything other than a Real Madrid win against Celta.
Celta Vigo has talented attackers in their ranks, and they might as well breach the Los Blancos backline, but it won’t be sufficient to overpower Real Madrid, who possess enough firepower in their attack, to breach the Celta backline a fair few times.
The Los Blancos will certainly go for a win, while the hosts will look to keep their net untouched for as long as possible and leave a good impression for their fans. With that in mind, I think that the teams will not combine over 4.5 goals in total.
