Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid Live Streams
Who could ever imagine that this Saturday’s match in the ninth round of La Liga will be a match between Celta Vigo and Real Madrid as the two top teams, which in the opening eight rounds still didn’t entered any defeat. And while for the Los Blancos that is not so suprising, the work that Eduardo Berizzo has done with Celta Vigo, it is.
It should also be pointed out that the first position of Celta is not a lucky result, because the Celts this season among others have beat Sevilla, Barcelona and Villarreal, all the teams from the top of the Spanish football.
In the last round Eduardo Berizzo’s men took an advantage of Villarreal’s injury and celebrated away 2-1, now, they hope to continue their good run against the injury troubled Los Blancos at home.
– We don’t have a special recipe for Real Madrid, we’ll play with our style as we always do – said the striker Nolito who commented on absences at Real Madrid:
” Yes, Real Madrid is having injury problems, the better for us, but regardless of that, they are powerful team and a favorite today. No, we’re not afraid of them and I believe that we can compete against them.”
Defenders Andreu Fontas and Dejan Drazic yesterday were given the green light for this game, and coach Eduardo Berizzo reported them for Real, but none of them was announced in the first team. The host so will be without Ruben Blanco, who is out since the beginning of the season.
Rafa Benitez and Real Madrid prepare for top of the table clash with surprise package Celta Vigo. Benitz also sends his best to Barcelona legend Johan Cruff
Real Madrid last weekend knocked Levante and came to the top position which the Los Blancos share with Celta, but earlier this week in the Champions League Benitez men played a pale game at Parc des Princes. However, with the point at the end both teams were happy. The Croatian duo Mateo Kovacic and Luka Modric are ready, as well as Sergio Ramos which is the good news for Los Blancos’ defence.
On the other hand, Karim Benzema has not managed to recover in time, and he stayed in Madrid, where from before due to injuries are and Dani Carvajal, James Rodriguez, Pepe and Gareth Bale.
– We’ve got a very difficult match against a team that has not lost, and that has recorded some great results. I have no doubt that Celta will give their best against Real Madrid, because we motivate every opponent. Celta have deserved everything theyachieved, but frankly we primarily think about ourselves, to play well and to win.
