Celta Vigo Vs Real Madrid Live Online Commentary
Celta reached the semi-final of the UEFA Europa League and it can be regarded as a success for the team led by head coach Eduardo Berizzo. However, Argentine specialist completely ruined the impression in the domestic league where Celta lost five matches in the row ahead of the clash with Real Madrid. It will be very interesting to see if Berizzo will use his star men this time because we could witness a real thriller if Iago Aspas, John Guidetti & company start the match from the very first whistle. As regards team news: Celta should be back to full strength here having rested a host of players again at the weekend. Swede striker John Guidetti should be chosen ahead of Claudio Beauvue up top with Iago Aspas in a wide role.
On the other hand, French legend Zinedine Zidane has been enjoying a fantastic campaign in this season, but he is yet to secure trophies. Iconic star Cristiano Ronaldo has been magnificent in the weekend’s home victory over Sevilla by scoring twice. It was the fourth victory on the bounce for Real Madrid in Primera Division. As for Los Blancos team news for the upcoming match: central defender Nacho is suspended. Danilo should move to right-back as a result with Marcelo returning at left-back. Karim Benzema and Isco are likely to come back into the side to partner Cristiano Ronaldo in attack.
