Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Real Madrid will be aiming to build on a 4-1 win over Osasuna when they host Celta Vigo at their Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Matchday 23. Los Blancos are eager to regain the La Liga trophy, but Zinedine Zidane’s troops need to keep on making progress if they are to put an end to Barca’s dominance in the national championship. Gareth Bale returned to contention against Osasuna, but Eden Hazard remains in the recovery room.
In his absence, a man to watch in the home team will be Karim Benzema, who has netted 13 goals in La Liga so far this season. Os Celeste came from behind to beat Sevilla 2-1 at the weekend, with Sisto scoring the winner in the dying minutes of the match. However, the Galicians, who are not regarded as good travellers, are unlikely to spoil Real Madrid’s party at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
