Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid Preview

 

Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Balaídos

Date: 7th January 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Celta Vigo gave a good account of themselves when they welcomed Barcelona to their home on Thursday.

They drew that game against an under strength Barcelona side but they also drew the league leaders last month which shows that they can hold themselves against the toughest of oppositions.

They have been a stumbling block to Los Blancos before notably winning against them in the semifinal of last season’s Copa Del Rey and this game offers them another opportunity to enhance their reputation.

Iago Aspas has 7 more league goals than any Real Madrid player this season with 11 strikes and he could be the difference in this game.

They have lost their last six meetings with Real Madrid but both teams have scored in the last 7 encounters.

Real Madrid ended 2017 on a poor note following a 3-0 home loss to Barcelona and they are starting the new year in a difficult stadium.

They will be hoping other teams can beat Barcelona so they can catch up with the Catalans but the real danger is in allowing to gap to widen further by losing or drawing this game.

They may fall out of the top four before even kicking a ball in this encounter and that makes this month an important one for the future of Zinedine Zidane.
