Real Madrid draw Celta Vigo in Copa del Rey Quarterfinals

Not an easy draw for Los Blancos but it could have been worse.

Real Madrid will face Celta Vigo in the Copa del Rey Quarterfinals, which will begin next week.

This will not be an easy tie for Real Madrid as Celta have been playing very well this season. However, considering that Los Blancos could've faced Atletico de Madrid or Barcelona this round, it's not a terrifying draw.

The first leg will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu, so Madrid will need a strong performance at home just like they did in the Round of 16 against Sevilla in order to enjoy a more manageable return leg when they visit Vigo.

All things considered, it's clear that Madrid are the better team here, but Zidane's men still need to take things very seriously and Cristiano Ronaldo will most likely be involved in this tie after missing Madrid's two matches against Sevilla in the Round of 16.

Iago Aspas is in great form and Real's defense will need to be careful.
