Celta de Vigo Starting XI: To Be Confirmed

As it was announced during Friday's press conference, Ancelotti starts Asier Illarramendi in Isco's spot after the Andalusian's ban wasn't lifted. Illarramendi will be starting his first match in a couple of months, so it will be interesting to see how well he performs, especially considering Celta's intensity, a scenario in which the midfielder has struggled in the past.

Real Madrid will need to be careful with a Celta de Vigo side that have managed to beat FC Barcelona at the Camp Nou this very same season. Still, Ancelotti's men obviously have the edge in this one, so if Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of the BBC put on a decent performance, the three points should stay in the Santiago Bernabeu. If that happens, Real Madrid would've won 18 consecutive games.
