Real Madrid host Celta Vigo at the Santiago Bernabeu this weekend and the home side will be looking to close the gap with rivals Atletico Madrid and Barcelona in the La Liga standings.
After a loss against Atletico Madrid, Los Blancos are trailing Barcelona by nine points and cannot afford to drop any more points. With a trip to Camp Nou coming up, Real Madrid will need to win most of their remaining matches (if not all) in order to stand a chance of winning the La Liga this season.
Celta Vigo have had an impressive season so far and the likes of Aspas and Nolito will look to punish an inconsistent Real Madrid side. The away side have done quite well against the Spanish elite and their performance against Barcelona earlier this season should be a cause for concern.
