Real Madrid were ready to face Celta Vigo at Balaidos tomorrow but the match has been postponed because of damage caused by the weather in the North of Spain. Apparently, the wind brought down a section of the roof and the match will be rescheduled.

Bad news for Real Madrid, as Celta were going to make some rotations after the Copa del Rey Semifinals against Alaves, meaning that the Galician side will most likely have fresher legs when they finally meet Real Madrid.

Los Blancos lost against Celta in the Copa del Rey Quarterfinals and this away match in La Liga is always a very tough meeting for every squad. Real Madrid will play against Osasuna next Saturday and will now have two games at hand, one against Valencia and this one against Celta Vigo.

Although La Liga still has to make an official announcement on the decision, Vigo's mayor has confirmed the news.
