La Liga

Teams: Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid

Venue: Estadio de Balaidos, Vigo

Time: 4.00pm

Los Blancos are missing four star players for Saturday's match, with James Rodriguez, Pepe, Dani Carvajal and Gareth Bale all injured.

In contrast, Celta have a fully fit team to choose from as they look to keep up their impressive start to the season so far, the highlight being their 4-1 league win over FC Barcelona.

Rafael Benitez's men are unbeaten in 18 La Liga matches, keeping six clean sheets in their past eight outings.

Celta have also been in great domestic form of late – they haven't lost a match in 13 encounters.

Head-to-head, Real have beaten Celta five times in the past six matches across all competitions.

The Santiago Bernabeu club will have to keep a watchful eye on Celta's Nolito considering his displays this season, which has seen him become the target of interest from Barcelona.
