Real Madrid opens 2021 with the need to win a Celta de Vigo who arrives thrown into this duel. The draw in Elche has once again awakened criticism with the white team and Zidane and tonight's game can either add to that criticism or put it back to sleep. It will not be easy for the whites because Celta reaches the Di Stefano on a roll. The Galician team, led by Aspas, did not know defeat last December and is in the best moment of this season.
As it is, Zidane and theirs will have to show their best version again to face this duel. You must do it without Sergio RamosHe comes down at the last minute and that is bad news for Zidane and all of Real Madrid. The coach is left without the captain and team leader to stop him Blades, the top scorer in the championship with nine goals. Nacho and Militao Ramos's position is played and everything indicates that it will be the first that will start. It will not be the only change in defense because Mendy will return to the left side after leaving his place at Marcelo that again missed a new opportunity.
The great unknown is what role Zidane will reserve for Hazard in this match. The French coach does not want to risk the least with the Belgian, paid to injuries. Hence, the question is whether Zidane he will start tonight or reserve it to give him minutes in the second half. If Hazard is not a starter, the most logical thing is that Marco Asensio play to the left, without ruling out Vinicius who has seen how he has been losing prominence in the starting team. The rest of the team seems more or less the usual of the last days. That, despite the fact that in Elche symptoms of fatigue were seen in some players, such as Modric or Lucas Vázquez. At first, Zidane will continue to bet on them from the start.
