How important would it be for Real Madrid to overcome injuries and steal a win from Balaídos? Celta Vigo are a very tough team to play against and their intensity will be something very dangerous given that Madrid just played against PSG this Wednesday. Kudos to the one who schedules the matches in La Liga.
With Luka Modric back from his muscle injury, Benítez will most likely start his trademark midfield of Kroos-Modric-Casemiro. Isco, Ronaldo and Jesé should play upfront because Benzema has not recovered just yet.
This will be a crucial match for Real Madrid. Celta managed to beat Barcelona comfortably a month ago and that should be a big warning sign for Benítez and his men. Nolito, Orellana, Wass and Co. are very dynamic and Real's defenders will need to be very careful.
All things considered this will be an interesting game and a good opportunity for Madrid to make a statement and show they're ready to fight.
