Real Madrid 2-0 Celta Vigo: Rating & Slating the players

It’s a winning return for Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid eased to a 2-0 win at home against Celta Vigo. Los Blancos were finally playing some good football this season and have already shown positive effects of the Frecnhman’s return.

Zidane made some interesting changes to the starting XI with Keylor Navas, Marcelo, Gareth Bale, Isco and Marco Asensio making a return. They did not let the manager down and were at their best today.

Isco opened the scoring in the 62nd minute after a wonderful run by Asensio who laid the ball to Benzema. The French striker did not waste time and squared the ball to the six-yard box for Isco to tap it in.

Gareth Bale, who was showing glimpses of his Tottenham form, made it 2-0 in the 77th minute to seal the game for Los Blancos. The Welshman should consider himself lucky to be on the pitch as the referee decided to only book him for an elbow on Vazquez at the end of first half.

With this win, Real Madrid are now 9 points behind league leaders, Barcelona and 2 points behind 2nd placed, Atletico Madrid. However, both the sides have a game in hand.
