Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo: Probable lineups

Real Madrid, still perched atop La Liga, will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host relegation-threatened Celta Vigo at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday. A victory would further solidify their lead at the summit, stretching it to eight points with second-placed Girona having already played one more game.

Los Blancos’ recent form, however, has been a cause for concern. They’ve only managed two wins in their last five league matches, and their momentum was somewhat stalled by a disappointing Champions League draw against RB Leipzig.

Despite their struggles, Real Madrid come into this match as clear favorites. They boast a healthy five-point cushion at the top of the table and have already secured their place in the Champions League quarterfinals.

For Celta Vigo, the situation is far less comfortable. Currently sitting just above the relegation zone in 17th place, they desperately need points to secure their top-flight status. Their recent form, however, has been inconsistent, with only four points picked up in their last two games.

A narrow 1-0 victory over Almeria last time out will give Celta Vigo some confidence, but they face a daunting task against the league leaders. They’ll need to put up a spirited fight to avoid sinking further into the relegation mire.

Real Madrid (4-4-2): Lunin; Carvajal, Rudiger, Tchouameni, Mendy; Valverde, Modric, Kroos; Diaz, Rodrygo, Vinicius

Celta Vigo (4-4-2): Guaita; Manquillo, Starfelt, U Nunez, Sanchez; Mingueza, Beltran, De la Torre, Bamba; Larsen, Aspas
