Zidane made the sensational return to Madrid – the club he guided to three straight Champions League triumphs – this week as Santiago Solari was sacked following Real’s poor domestic form and shock European exit to Ajax.
Real Madrid published their starting lineup. Zidane signed his new deal with the club this past week and this is the first lineup since his return.
On the other hand, Celta Vigo, who had a great season last time are now sitting in the relegation zone. They will be desperate for a victory to climb up the ranks and maintain LaLiga status. It will be interesting to see how they would cope up against the Los Blancos who will be with their star manager yet again.
Celta Vigo have picked up only one point in the last five league games. The Real Madrid boss talked about the necessity to have the desire to win and cope up with the ongoing pressurized situation in the pre-match press conference.
Real Madrid starting XI: Navas; Odriozola, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Modric, Isco, Kroos; Bale, Asensio, Benzema
Celta Vigo starting XI (To Be Confirmed): Blanco; Vazquez, Araujo, Costas, Hoedt; Mendez, Yokuslu, Lobotka, Boufal; Boudebouz, Maxi Gomez
Los Blancos should take care of Celta, who are fighting to avoid relegation. Furthermore, most of Real Madrid’s players will be fighting to prove their worth after a difficult season, so this is a game where a good performance should be expected.
