Real Madrid will host an exciting and intense Celta Vigo squad at the Santiago Bernabéu before the decisive Champions League game against Roma next week. Los Blancos have nothing to play for in La Liga other than securing a spot in next year's Champions League, but they will surely use these Liga games to keep the usual starters fresh and get ready for the demanding European games ahead.
Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema will be out of the game but Gareth Bale is finally ready to make his return to the lineup after missing more than a month with a calf injury. Marcelo, Carvajal and Ramos are also back.
Casemiro and Mateo Kovacic will most likely be the chosen ones to play in the midfield and Zinedine Zidane will have to decide on whether to start Mayoral again or give Bale the starting minutes right away. It should be an easy choice if the Welshman is 100% ready to play.
Location: Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, Madrid, España.
Kick-off time: 16:00 PM CET, 10:00 PM Eastern.
