Celta Vigo team news
Celta will invariably have been sick following their season opener last Saturday against Espanyol, on their home pitch at Balaídos. Celta opened the scoring in first-half stoppage time through, who else, Iago Aspas, and proceeded to double their lead just after the hour mark thanks to Gonzalo Paciencia. That two-goal advantage held for nearly 10 minutes, before Espanyol midfielder Exposito pulled one back. Despite the goal, Celta did not rattle and looked poised to see out the game, until, deep in injury time, disaster struck and VAR overturn the referee and awarded Espanyol a penalty, which Joselu cooly converted in the 98th minute to secure a 2-2 draw.
On the bright side for Celta, they’re at home once again for Matchday 2, and thus won’t have to deal either with travel or a hostile environment while trying to get back on track. Less than ideal, however, are the visitors against whom they will be trying to get back on track: the defending La Liga and Champions League champions, Real Madrid, against whom Celta manager Eduardo Coudet has yet to secure even a point (four games, four losses).
Real Madrid team news
Madrid, meanwhile, opened their season on Sunday night in the southeast of Spain, against newly-promoted Almería. Despite posing a near-constant threat in attack, Los Blancos spent a good portion of their season opener contemplating whether they, too, would disappointingly drop points, as Belgian striker Largie Ramazani opened the scoring for Almería after just six minutes. From there, despite Madrid controlling the game, the hosts clung to their lead for nearly an hour.
Finally, in the 61st minute, Lucas Vazquez tapped in off of an assist from Karim Benzema to pull Madrid level. Harbouring visions of at least a point, Almería hung on for a bit, but were ultimately undone in the 75th minute by an inch-perfect David Alaba free kick that put Madrid ahead and secured their win.
Scoreline prediction: Celta Vigo 1-3 Real Madrid
