Real Madrid’s visit to Celta Vigo is yet another important win for Los Blancos if they still feel like they can compete for the 2020-2021 La Liga title. Zidane’s men are six points behind Atletico in the table and must keep putting some pressure on their neighbors.

Madrid will be without Sergio Ramos in this game, as the captain gets some rest after playing the last two games having just recovered from knee surgery.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Vazquez, Nacho, Varane, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Rodrygo, Vinicius, Benzema.

Celta Vigo predicted XI: Villar, Mallo, Araujo, Murillo, Martin, Tapia, Mendez, Suarez, Nolito, Aspas, Mina.

Real Madrid completed a very solid performance against Atalanta last Tuesday and they will be hoping to keep that momentum going today. Iago Aspas and Santi Mina form a solid dynamic duo for Celta’s offensive line, so Madrid will have to find a way to stop them without Ramos.
