The spotlight will be on Eden Hazard when Real Madrid and Celta Vigo face off at the Santiago Bernabeu tonight. The Belgian star returns to the team after missing the last three months with a foot injury, and while Celta Vigo should be quite a manageable opponent for Los Blancos, Hazard needs as many minutes as he can get in order to be physically ready for the Champions League tie against Manchester City.
Hazard isn’t expected to start and should come off the bench for the last 30 minutes if Real Madrid have a comfortable lead, which they should given how poorly Celta have performed this season.
This match offers Vinicius the perfect opportunity to keep his good form and confidence and it looks like he will feature in the starting lineup. The young attacker has to take advantage of every opportunity he gets before Hazard is able to start consistently, so expect Vinicius to come out firing on all cylinders tonight.
