Real Madrid will entertain Celta Vigo at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Sunday as they look to pick up maximum points in front of their home supporters. Los Blancos managed to pick up a narrow 1-0 win over Real Betis before the international break which should keep them in high spirits ahead of this weekend’s home clash versus Celta Vigo in La Liga.
Carlo Ancelotti could choose to set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and might make one change for this game. Nacho will probably get a start in central defence for Los Blancos while Miguel Gutiérrez is expected to keep his spot at left-back as the Real Madrid boss might not risk playing Marcelo from the start.
4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Celta Vigo
Thibaut Courtois will function as Madrid’s first team keeper after he secured a clean sheet in his last league appearance. Nacho could get an opportunity to impress alongside David Alaba at the heart of Ancelotti’s defence as they look to keep things solid at the back versus Celta Vigo this weekend.
Dani Carvajal could keep his place at right-back while Miguel Gutierrez gets another start as the left-back. Both of them will get the freedom to express themselves in the attacking end of the pitch. Marcelo is back in training and should be fit for a place on the bench.
Ancelotti could opt for a midfield three of Isco, Casemiro and Federico Valverde as they focus on creating enough goal-scoring chances for the front players to win this game. All three of them gave a good account of themselves against Real Betis last month, so they will be full of confidence going into this match.
Antonio Blanco will offer cover for the midfield positions on the Madrid bench.
Vinicius Junior will probably get another shot to put in a productive display from the left-wing. Gareth Bale is expected to operate down the right flank while Karim Benzema spearheads Los Blancos’ attack down the middle.
The talented trio failed to register a goal in their last league outing, so they will be eager to produce a better showing collectively in the final third. Eden Hazard had a good international break, so Ancelotti will rely on his services off the bench if needed.
