Real Madrid and Celta Vigo meet in a match of La Liga number 28. Confrontation will be played on Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday afternoon.
In the turn of the season, Real has managed to make the move from Celta Vigo with a score of 4-2, in a game where “Galactics” were led to almost all chapters. The 16 bands met Santiago Bernabeu and the hosts managed to win 10 victories, while the guests were forced 4 times, the last time in 2017, in a duel in the Spanish Cup.
After the disastrous results of the past few weeks, the Real Madrid leadership decided to delist Santiago Solari, replacing Zinedine Zidane. Solari’s last game on the “galactic” bench was the success achieved in the 4-1 victory at Valaldolid, a victory that broke the series of 3 consecutive failures that practically made the current season of the “galactics” total failure.
In his first match after being reinstated on Real’s bench, Zinedine Zidane will not be able to count Daniel Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior, the three being injured, while Marcos Llorente is uncertain.
Francisco Escriba’s band crosses an extremely difficult time with no less than 9 defeats in the last 11 games played in all competitions. The most recent failure was the one he suffered on his own, in front of the Bets, score 0-1, a duel in which the guests led to almost all chapters.
Iago Aspas (injured) and Hugo Mallo (suspended) are the only guests absent from Madrid.
Real Madrid: Courtois – Odriozola, Varane, Ramos, Macelo – Modric, Kroos, Valverde – Bale, Benzema, Asensio;
Celta Vigo: Blanco – Junca, Costas, Araujo, Vazquez – Boufal, Yokuslu, Lobotka, Mendez – Boudebouz – Gomez;
Certainly, the morale of the “galactic” will increase considerably after Zidane’s resettlement, and its reward is expected to be a success, given that the guests are not in a great time. We simply rely on a host of success with a minimum of two goals, winning bet in 6 of the last 8 visits of Celta Vigo on Santiago Bernabeu.
PREDICTION: Over 2,5 goals @ 1,38
