Real Madrid v Celta Vigo preview: Cristiano Ronaldo out, Gareth Bale returns

Real Madrid v Celta Vigo preview: Cristiano Ronaldo out, Gareth Bale returns

Real Madrid are third in La Liga with two games remaining in the season.

And after seeing their goal chalked off, any Celta Vigo spirit that had entered the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu ahead of kick-off seemed to deflate on the half-hour mark as Bale doubled both his and his side's return with a simply stunning finish.

Zinedine Zidane made eight changes from the team that started the game against Sevilla on Wednesday night, with Nacho, Casemiro and Karim Benzema the only three players that kept their positions in the starting line-up.

Real Madrid were unable to prevent Barcelona from continuing their unbeaten run in La Liga on Sunday as the Clasico at the Camp Nou ended in a 2-2 draw.

With their title hopes long gone, Madrid have turned their focus to Champions League.

There was a dip in landlord instructions coming onto the rental market, with this indicator remaining flat or negative since 2016. The fall for new instructions is also ongoing, though the -7% net balance is the least negative figure since September 2017.

The teenager was found down the right-hand side of the Celta Vigo area - utilising his pace to get the better of his defender - before the La Fabrica graduate unleashed a low shot across the face of goal which got the better of the Celticos shot-stopper's somewhat lackadaisical efforts. The Sky Blues have won only one of their last nine games, picking up only eight points.

Celta should welcome back top scorer Iago Aspas after a month out injured. If Aspas is unable to play, the club will turn to Maximiliano Gomez who has scored 16 goals.

The visitors come into the clash winless in their last five games, the last of which was a 1-1 draw with Deportivo La Coruna.
