Real Madrid just slipped away against Celta Vigo. Celta was tough against Real Madrid, and the Royal club could not win the match.
Losing two crucial points against Celta Vigo
Eden Hazard is back in action. Belgian player was on the pitch from the start, and he did everything to influence the attacking line. Hazard was the leading player who got right on kicking the penalty in the second half.
Zidane started the match with Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard as wingers. Kroos, Casemiro, and Valverde were leading players in midfield. Celta Vigo welcomed a freshly signed Russian forward – Smolov.
First hard was in favor of Celta Vigo. Smolov scored a very smooth and beautiful goal in the middle of the first half. Unfortunately to Real Madrid fans, the team could not return in-game during the first 45 minutes.
In the second half, Zidane made few tactical changes, and the team could return in the match. We saw a goal from Toni Kroos at first, and then Sergio Ramos scored from a penalty kick. On 86th minute, Santi Mina scored a goal and changed the outcome.
Real Madrid is still the leader of La Liga
As of now, Real Madrid is on top of the Spanish Primera Division. Barcelona is one point away from Los Blancos, and that one-point gap could be gone during the El Clasico.
Real Madrid and Barcelona will play next El Clásico at Santiago Bernabeu. The match is scheduled for 1st March 2020. Except for Asensio, Real Madrid’s players are ready and healthy for the game. At the same time, Barcelona has issues in the attacking line. Quique Setien mentioned many times that the team needs a new striker. La Liga even made an exception for Barcelona, and Spanish journalists are waiting for the decision from the board.
El Clasico will be entertaining to watch because there is only one point gap between teams. The winning match could be equal to winning the La Liga trophy this season.
