ronaldo by far overrated in this game
modric clearly underrated should have got over 8.0 - played magnificently
Ref is amateur who gave some fouls which were appalling all the way
the way ref is offciating the game seems like its his first game , totally befuddled & effciently discombobulating madridistas
-Isco will likely move around the box trying to find empty space to pass the the trio up front and if Celta defend tightly it will be up to him to create space with his exquisite dribbling ability.
-Benzema will move around trying to hide behind defenders and pass to Bale and Ronaldo or take the shot if he has the time and space.
I believe that unless something unexpected happens like a red card, Real Madrid will win this game in style.
Real Madrid 3-5 vs Celta Vigo 0-2
-Logic says Real Madrid will dictate the game, keeping posession and creating numerous scoring chances.
-Marcelo will make runs forward creating space and crossing into the box or combining with Ronaldo.
-Arbeloa will go forward less and will mostly pass the ball to the more creative players.
-Pepe and Ramos will try to keep Celta attackers at bay, preveting counter attacks.
-Alonso will play many forward balls behind the Celta defenders for Ronaldo and Bale to run to and will mostly stay in front of Pepe and Ramos keeping things tidy and recycling posession between the defenders and midfielders.
-Modric will make more forward runs, dribbling past opponents trying to make through balls or rarely even take a shot if in good position.
-Ronaldo and Bale will try to run to their respective defenders, with Ronaldo mainly cutting inside from the left to shoot with his right foot while Bale cutting inside from the right to cross the ball for Ronaldo or shoot.
- Real Madrid have conceded goals from headers in the last couple games and Celta might try to exploit that aswell with free kicks or corner kicks.
- Real Madrid played well on the first half of their friendly game with PSG on Jan 2nd at Dubai, showing some good ball movement.
-The players had some time off to rest and recharge batteries with the staff planning some mini-preseason like training sessions to get the players to the optimum physical condition.
-Its been 22 years in a row that Real Madrid win their first home game after the new year and its been since 2007 that Real Madrid last lost a game when playing during midweek, counting 20 wins 2 draws.
Squad to face Celta:
Midfielders: Modric,Alonso,Illara,Casemiro,Di Maria, Bale,Isco
Possible starting XI:
Arbeloa/Carvajal Pepe Ramos Marcelo
Bale/Di Maria/Jese Isco Ronaldo
-Arbeloa,Modric, Bale if fit will logically start ahead of Carvajal,Illara,Di Maria/Jese respectively.
-Khedira is injured for the rest of the season
-Coentrao is training with the rest of the squad but basically has to regain match fitness
-Varane needs another 2 weeks before he can be incorporated with the rest of his teammates.
About the match:
-Celta logically won't play as defensive as some other teams do when playing at the Bernabeu, they will try to keep posession and attack from the wings where they are the best.
-Nonetheless as all teams do, they will try to catch Real Madrid on the counter.
varane isnt fit yet

Need to hammer traitor enrique's team , with bale back atleast 4 goals past them
i hope aerial weakness is rectified during set pieces.When a dimunitive player like piatti got ahead of our defenders during set pieces it was time 2 redeem our defense.
Hoping to see Isco magic
hmmmmm it's always hard to predict an correct score.
Teams like Real Madrid may score a lot of goals, but i would say 2-1
plug it up
Will be hard fought 3-1 win for Madrid.
Carvajal, Ramos, Pepe, Marcelo
Bale, Isco, Ronaldo
We need to win this by 3-4 margin atleast
