Real Madrid host Celta Vigo at the Santiago Bernabeu in what will be the first leg of the Copa del Rey Quaterfinals. Los Blancos saw their unbeaten run come to an end during their visit to Sevilla last Sunday and will try to bounce back from said loss and complete a good performance on this first leg.

"I am not surprised by Celta’s record and that they have won everything in 2017 because they’re a very good team, they fight and play very good football. We have to go in to it as we know how, because it’ll be another complicated match for us. It's a knock-out match and we'll see what happens tomorrow," said Zidane.

"The other day before the Sevilla match there were three or four changes. We have a lot of games and before the next international break we play every three days and we need everyone. We’re getting players back but we’re still without Pepe, Bale, Coentrão...they’re slowly recovering and that’s good because it makes me think more about who to pick," he added.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Casilla, Danilo, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Isco, Kovacic, Vazquez, Ronaldo, Morata.

Celta predicted XI: Sergio, Mallo, Cabral, Roncaglia, Jonny, Diaz, Radoja, Wass, Hernandez, Sisto, Aspas.

Prediction: Real Madrid 2-0 Celta Vigo
