Real Madrid will entertain Celtic at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium this Wednesday evening as both teams look to end their UEFA Champions League group stage campaign with a win. Los Blancos were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Girona recently. In contrast, the Glaswegian side managed to secure a 3-0 victory over Livingston recently which will give them some confidence ahead of this game.

Real Madrid vs Celtic: Talking Tactics

Carlo Ancelotti will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could ask his men to dominate the ball and engineer some decent chances in the final third.

Angelos Postecoglou will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation as well and might instruct his players to defend their penalty box with everything they have and try to cause some problems for the home team on the counter.

Celtic Predicted XI

Hart; Taylor, Jenz, Carter-Vickers, Ralston; Hatate, O’Riley, Mooy; Abada, Furuhashi, Forrest

Key Men

Real Madrid

Rodrygo will have to figure out a way to be a constant menace inside the Celtic penalty box. Both Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga would have to give a good account of themselves at the centre of Real Madrid’s midfield if they want to come out on top in this midweek fixture.


Joe Hart will be expected to make a few solid saves at the back if Celtic are to have any chance of claiming something from this contest. Cameron Carter-Vickers and Moritz Jenz would have to figure out a way to stop the home team from creating too many chances during the 90 minutes.
