Spanish La Liga

Starting XI Real v Celta

Spanish La Liga 

Teams: Real Madrid v Celta Vigo 

Date: 27 August 2016

Venue: Santiago Bernabeu

Real Madrid will host Celta Vigo at the Santiago Bernabeu in their opening home game of the La Liga season.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h15.

Los Blancos began the new season with a comfortable 3-0 win over thanks to a brace from Gareth Bale and a solitary strike from Marco Asensio.

Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo remain unavailable for the Champions League winners, which could Alvaro Morata retain his spot in the attack.  

Celta Vigo will be hoping for a return to winning ways after they suffered a 1-0 defeat to newly promoted, Leganes last weekend.

The visitors will be without the services of goalkeeper Ruben Blanco Veiga, Marcelo Diaz and Claudio Beauvue for Saturday's clash.

Here's how they will line-up:

Real Madrid: Casilla, Marcelo, Varane, Ramos, Carvajal, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Asensio, Bale, Morata.

Celta Vigo: Sergio, Mallo, Cabral, Roncaglia, Jonny; Radoja, Pablo Hdez, Wass, Orellana, Bongonda, Guidetti.
