Real Madrid will face off against Celta Vigo at the Estadio de Balaídos on Saturday night as they focus on securing all three points on their travels. Los Blancos managed to secure a hard-fought 2-1 victory away at Almeria earlier this month which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.
Carlo Ancelotti will stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and could make a few changes to his starting XI for this game. Both Casemiro and Luka Modric are expected to play from the start while Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni drop to the bench.
4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Celta Vigo
Thibaut Courtois will function in goal for Los Blancos after shipped in one goal versus Almeria in his last league appearance. Eder Militao will operate along with David Alaba at the heart of Real Madrid’s backline as they try to keep things solid at the back throughout the 90 minutes.
Dani Carvajal will probably keep his place at right-back while Ferland Mendy looks to give a good account of himself on the other flank as the left-back. Ancelotti will give both of them the license to get forward and express themselves in the final third.
Antonio Rudiger, Lucas Vazquez and Nacho will be available for selection on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive positions.
Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric will once again make up Ancelotti’s midfield as they look to dominate the ball at the centre of the park and create some decent opportunities for their teammates to score.
Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchoumeni will have to settle for a place on the bench as they await their chance to impress in the second half if required.
Vinicius Junior will once again look to create a lot of headaches for the opposition defenders from the left flank while Federico Valverde tries to put in another tireless shift on the other side as a right-sided winger.
Karim Benzema will definitely lead the line for the Madrid giants in the final third. The French forward will be eager to make a difference by producing a goal-scoring display this weekend.
Rodrygo is expected to recover in time for this game. The Brazilian talent and Mariano Diaz will be named on the bench but might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if Real Madrid are in need of a goal by then.
