Celta v Real Madrid: no margin for error
We offer a forecast for the match of the Spanish championship, in which Celta takes on Real Madrid on March 20. Will the Celts be able to resist in this confrontation? - the answer is in our material.
Celta had a good chance of relegation at the end of last season, but only a miracle saved the team from Vigo from relegation to Segunda. The start of the new championship did not bring the expected improvement in the game, which came with the change of the head coach.
After the Argentine Eduardo Caudet took over as the coach of the «sky», the situation changed dramatically. The Celts managed to break into the top ten after a series of successful matches in the autumn and early winter. Over the 27 rounds of the current La Liga championship, Celtic have recorded eight wins and 10 draws, which corresponds to 34 points and 10th position in the standings.
In the last five rounds, the hosts have stumbled only once in the match with Valencia (0: 2). The team has twice shared the tournament points with Valladolid (1: 1) and Athletic (0: 0), in addition, recorded two successful matches – with Elche (3:1) and Huesca (4:3).
The team's start in the Spanish Cup ended in failure, where the team passed only the first stage, but already at the next stage lost to Ibiza (2: 5) from the third league.
Alvarez, Blanco and Mohr, who has a muscle injury, will not be able to play today.
Real Madrid made it through the first stage of the Champions League playoffs, where they twice defeated Atalanta (1: 0 and 3: 1), which brought the coveted pass to the 1/4 finals of the main club tournament in Europe.
The start of Galacticos in the Spanish Cup was unsuccessful, where the team was defeated already in the first stage, losing to Alcoyano (1: 2 d. v.) from the third league.
In the tournament of Examples, the current winner of this championship is still in the third position. For 27 rounds in the asset of «white» 17 wins and six peaceful outcomes, which brought 57 points. The distance to the leader is six points, which eliminates the possibility of a misfire in the remaining matches of the Major League championship.
After two peaceful outcomes with «Real Sociedad» (1: 1) and «Atletico» (1: 1), the wards of Zinedine Zidane on their field only in the last minutes snatched a victory from the modest «Elche» (2:1), which we predicted.
«Cream» 46 times hit the gates of opponents, of which 15 goals were scored by Karim Benzema.
