All goals and highlights: Real Madrid 2-1 Celta Vigo, 2016 La Liga

New, comments

Real Madrid earned a very important win at home.

Readers from the United States can watch the highlights here.

Real Madrid struggled to get a close 2-1 win at home against a very competitive Celta Vigo side who managed to dominate some periods of the game. Zidane decided to start Casemiro in the midfield even at home, and rightfully so as Celta's counterattacks proved to be very dangerous for Real Madrid.

Morata scored the opening goal late in the game and when it looked like Madrid had it all under control, Orellana got the equaliser from distance and forced Zidane's men to pull it out through a brilliant goal by Toni Kroos.

It wasn't a brilliant offensive match from Real, so getting all three points available seems like a good deal for Zidane and his men, especially after Atlético de Madrid collected their second consecutive draw, meaning that they are now 4 points behind their neighbors in the La Liga table.

It's clear that Real still have some work to do with their midfield, but in the meantime they are getting wins.
