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 the table position of Elche, however, recovered with an impressive game in the New Year

Manager Zinedine Zidane rolled out his team in a back four, opting to allow Marco Asensio to re-start as part of the attacking trio for the injured Rodrygo in the backline, with Nacho in place of captain Sergio Ramos and Mendy on the left instead of Marcelo started an experienced midfield in Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric should immediately set the tone for the team

That’s not how it turned out Instead, it was a promising start for the visiting team with Celta Viga almost first on the scoreboard when Iago Aspas tried to hit Courtois for an opening goal, Nacho was there for the recovery and cleared the ball away for Madrid to counter quickly Asensio drove one on one into the penalty area against his defender and got a cross from a waiting Lucas Vazquez for the first header in the first five minutes of the game It was a dizzyingly fast end-to-end move

The home team would continue to dominate the left side of the field, with midfield trio feeding Asensio along the flank and making the defenders pay, however, early action did not predict an eventful half as the two teams took the break and only scored six shots , with Real Madrid only ousting Celta Vigo 4: 2

Zidane would resume his first starting XI to start the second half with Celta Vigo having no use for the possession they retained Madrid midfield continued to bother and blinded the ball for the team It was that dominance in midfield , with the Madrid in 53 Minute his lead doubled

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 all signed in the last fifteen minutes Eden Hazard played instead of Asensio and continued to build his 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 create counterattack scenarios that resulted in a number of strong opportunities in front of goal
