Real Madrid won again and maintained their unbeaten streak in the league on Saturday when Los Blancos beat Celta Viga 2-0 at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano. Real Madrid drew 1-1 with Elche, a disappointing result given Elche’s table position, but bounced back with an impressive game in the New Year.
Manager Zinedine Zidane rolled out his team in a back four and decided to allow Marco Asensio to start again as part of the attacking trio for the injured Rodrygo. Adjustments were made in the backline, with Nacho starting on the left instead of Captain Sergio Ramos and Mendy starting on the left instead of Marcelo. An experienced midfield in Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric should immediately set the tone for the team.
It didn’t turn out like that. Instead. It was a promising start for the visiting team when Celta Viga almost came first on the scoreboard when Iago Aspas tried to score Courtois for an opening goal. Nacho was there to relax and put the ball away so Madrid could counter quickly. Asensio went one-on-one against his defender and got a cross from a waiting Lucas Vazquez for the first header in the first five minutes of play. It was a dizzyingly fast end-to-end train.

The home team would continue to dominate the left side of the field, with the midfield trio Asensio feeding along the flank and making the defenders pay. The early action didn’t predict an eventful half, however, as the two teams took the break and scored just six shots, with Real Madrid only ousting Celta Vigo 4-2.
Zidane would continue his first XI to start the second half with Celta Vigo having no use for the possession they were keeping. The Madrid midfield continued to disturb and blinded the ball for the team. It was this dominance in midfield that made Madrid 53. Minute doubled his lead.
A terrible pass from Murillo was intercepted by Modric and the ball moved seamlessly from Croatian to Casimero, to Vazquez and to Asensio for Real Madrid’s second goal.

The goal would only fire Los Blancos in the further course of the game. Karim Benzema almost scored a third goal for the hosts. Modric and Kroos teamed up to lead Benzema through the gate, but his touch tickled just inches from the gate far away as the music box ticked past the hour mark.
Zidane would start banning his match MVPs as Asensio, Kroos and Modric and others were all signed in the last fifteen minutes. Eden Hazard replaced Asensio and added minutes from the last game.
Ultimately, it didn’t matter that Madrid saw less of the ball, with Celta having 59% possession, because after scoring so early, Madrid could focus on keeping their lead and it was good to interfere in midfield and creating counterattack scenarios that resulted in a number of strong opportunities in front of goal.
Nacho, Real Madrid: The center-back had a great day on the backline for Sergio Ramos. He led the movement for the inaugural goal with his goal line clearance and was responsible for a second goal that blocked the route to keep a goal for Los Blancos. Rating: 8
Marco Asensio, Real Madrid: He returned to the line-up and showed why he is a regular at Zidane at the moment. The left wing completely dominated and left Celta Vigo without an answer. Assisted Madrid’s first goal and scored second. Rating: 9
Toni Kroos, Real Madrid: The most touched midfielder for Real Madrid in the first half was a threat to Celta Vigo. And he wasn’t conservative with the ball either, as he was constantly trying to bond with his strikers. Rating: 8. 5
Luka Modric, Real Madrid: The Croation midfielder had another big game for Los Blancos as host and generator. Defended well against Celta Vigo’s attempt to attack and connect to his top line. Rating: 8. 5
The 2-0 win means that Real Madrid are finally in first place in the table after weeks of chasing Atletico Madrid. They are in first place with 36 points, just a narrow lead over their competitors from the Crosstown with 35 points. Real Madrid will look to build their position further next week when they face Osasuna in January. 9 on the way in El Sadar.
