Real Madrid will play their most crucial game in Spain’s Premier Division when they visit Celta Vigo on Wednesday night. Celta Vigo will host Real Madrid who are on level at 87 points with Barcelona. This is a game in hand for Real which resulted from the postponing of the fixture earlier in February due to bad weather and with a positive result taking them three points ahead of their rivals Barcelona ahead of La Liga’s final matches this weekend. Real require four points from their remaining two matches in order to be crowned champions.
Real Madrid will play at the Estadio Municipal de Balaidos having recorded a series of positive results from their previous matches. Celta Vigo are coming from a rough week having lost 3-1 away to Alaves and being eliminated from the Europa League semi final by Manchester United. Celta who are on 13th position have lost six of their last seven matches and are yet to record a win since they last won against Granada back in April 16.
Zidane’s side is on great form with Cristiano Ronaldo’s in exemplary form having scored 22 goals in his last 27 La Liga appearances. The Los Blancos coach confirmed that Ronaldo will make it to the squad, despite leaving him out during recent away matches and will most likely partner Karim Benzema and Isco in their three-man attack. Defender Nacho Fernandez will also be available for selection against Celta after his suspension was appealed against and accepted. Real’s only injury concern is Gareth Bale who still remains sidelined.
Although Celta are in terrible form, Coach Eduardo Berizzo hopes to redeem himself in tonight’s match. His only concern is striker Guiseppe Rossi who is out injured for a long time and Eduardo is expected to prefer John Guidetti to lead his search for goals instead of Claudio Beauvue.
The Los Blancos will look forward to win this match to keep their hopes of being crowned La Liga champions.
