Real Madrid predicted lineup vs Celta Vigo: Match preview

The defending champions of La Liga, have had a mixed start to their season. They qualified to the next stages of the Champions League, but not with the kind of ease they are used to. This makes winning the La Liga even more of a priority for the Santiago Bernabeu outfit.

Real Madrid were denied 3 points against Elche in their previous game, when a Fidel Chaves penalty canceled out a Luka Modric goal. Star forward Karim Benzema will look to forget the last match and continue his otherwise brilliant goalscoring record in the league.

Their opponents have overcome their midseason slump and went unbeaten in the month of December, and under newly appointed Eduardo Coudet, they have won 4 and drawn 1 of their 5 La Liga matches in the last month of 2020. The Argentine tactician who left league leaders Internacional in Brazil, will rely on in-form striker Iago Aspas to continue his fine form in front of goal.

Real Madrid predicted lineup vs Celta Vigo: Latest Team News

Boss Zinedine Zidane remarked that he was satisfied with the performance of all his players after the draw against Elche. This could indicate an unchanged lineup against Celta Vigo. Eden Hazard has been told he needs time to get back into the starting XI, implying the Euro 130 million Belgian forward could feature off the bench for the Los Blancos.  Young winger Rodrygo is also out injured, meaning Marco Asensio and compatriot Lucas Vazquez might retain their starting spots on either side of Karim Benzema, forming Madrid’s attack.

In-form Celta Vigo will be without the services of David Junca, Kevin Vazquez and goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez.

We expect Zidane to continue with his preferred 4-3-3 formation, with an unchanged lineup to the one that drew against Elche. Toni Kroos and 2018 Balon d’Or winner Luka Modric could dictate play from the middle, ahead of defensive midfielder Casemiro. Charismatic captain Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane could play at the heart of defence with Marcelo and Dani Carvajal on either side. Thibaut Courtois is expected to continue in between the sticks.

Formation: 4-3-3

GK: Courtois
