Real Madrid is welcoming Celta Vigo to Santiago Bernabeu in round 4 of the Spanish LaLiga. Real has started this season well, and they are showing they are not joking in the title run this season. Celta is a solid team, but they haven’t been doing well so far this season, especially in the attacking end.

Real Madrid hasn’t lost any of their last 4 games while having 2 wins and a draw in their first 3 LaLiga games. Real Madrid was playing against Betis on the road before the international break, and they were solid with 49% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. Real Madrid was the better team, but Betis was playing well defensively, and it has kept them in this game until the 61st minute. Real Madrid was able to score 1 goal, and it was enough for a 0-1 win on the road. Real Madrid is also playing in the Champions League against Inter next week, and it will be a good game. With impressive 8 scored goals, 4 conceded goals, and 7 points, Real Madrid is at the top of the table at the moment. Vinicius has been in great form so far, and he is Real’s leading goalscorer with 3 goals. Benzema has added 2 goals. The injury list is long for Real, and I don’t think Ancelotti will risk any injuries before the Champions League.

Celta still hasn’t won any games this season, but they are a good team, and I think they will get out of this slump soon. Celta was able to score 1 goal in their season opener, but they have conceded 3 goals, and they have lost 2 games while tying 1 game. In their last game against Bilbao at home, Celta was the dominant team with 62% of ball possession, but 0 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 75% of the correct passes. As I’ve mentioned, Celta is not doing well in the attacking end so far, and they weren’t able to use any of their chances in this game as well. Celta has lost this game 0-1. Aspas is the only goalscorer for Celta, while Baeza, Fonta, and Bazquez are all still questionable for this match. Celta is a good team, they have had a solid last season, but their offense must start producing, and fast because they might get into a hole, and it will be hard to come out of it.

Real Madrid is the better team here, but with the Champions League game ahead of them, I think they will rest a few players in this game, which is the perfect chance for Celta to get on the scoreboard, and I think they will.
