Celta Vigo VS Real Madrid – Live
Real Madrid return to La Liga action at Balaidos with their title defence in tatters after a crushing 3-0 home defeat to leaders Barcelona in their final game of 2017.
That left the champions 14 points adrift of Barca – albeit with a game in hand – and knowing they will need something approaching a miracle to overturn the deficit to their arch rivals.
The first objective will be to try and beat Celta Vigo, a side which held Barca to a 1-1 draw in their Copa del Rey last-16 first leg on Thursday.
Zidane said: “We’re facing a very good team in this league, who work hard and have good players. What they are doing is very good, and we know the difficulty of tomorrow’s match. But I’m more interested in what we’re going to try and do.”
Real’s cause has not been helped by an injury to Sergio Ramos which could keep the Spain defender out for most of January, and Zidane admits the loss of his skipper is a significant blow.
