Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo Liveblog
Real travel to the Balaídos today to take on second to last Celta Vigo in hopes of capturing their sixth straight win in just three weeks. Real have been flying high after bumping Barcelona and Manchester United out of the Copa del Rey and Champion’s League, respectively, in rapid succession. Vigo has defeated Madrid earlier this year in their home leg in the Copa del Rey, only to be defeated on aggregate after the return leg. Madrid will have to play without Sergio Ramos, who is suffering from a flu illness and is in the final stages of recovery, according to his Facebook page. The Whites, will, however, appear to have Cristiano Ronaldo who did train on the final day of practice leading up to today’s clash, but only at a limited speed. Madrid have shown they can manage without their “Dark Avenger” (courtesy of Ray Hudson), but surely away to Vigo will be a much bigger challenge than Barcelona at home. Here’s to Madrid bringing back three points. Hala Madrid!
