Sports Mole looks at how Real Madrid could line up in Sunday’s La Liga clash with Celta Vigo.
Los Blancos have beaten Melilla, Real Valladolid and Viktoria Plzen in their last three fixtures across three separate competitions.
The European champions are still down in sixth spot in La Liga, but are only four points off second-placed Espanyol, and will be looking to continue their recent turnaround with a win against Celta.
Madrid will fancy their chances as well when considering that Celta have only been victorious in one of their last eight in Spain’s top flight.
Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how Madrid, who still have a number of injury problems, could line up in Vigo on Sunday night.
It might be a case of ‘same again’ for interim Madrid boss Santiago Solari when it comes to his back four. Indeed, Dani Carvajal, Raphael Varane, Jesus Vallejo and Marcelo are still all on the sidelines, meaning that options are limited.
Luka Modric and Marco Asensio were both left on the bench for Wednesday’s 5-0 win at Plzen in the Champions League, but the pair should return, with Dani Ceballos and Lucas Vazquez expected to drop out.
Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema were on the scoresheet in the mid-week European match and will continue in the XI, with exciting youngster Vinicius Junior providing an attacking option from the bench.
