LaLiga 

Teams: Real Madrid v Celta Vigo

Date: 16 March 2019

Venue: Santiago Bernabeu

Zidane was re-appointed as Los Blancos manager on Wednesday following the sacking of Santiago Solari.

The 13-time European champions have virtually nothing left to play for as they have been knocked out of the UEFA Champions League and Copa del Rey, while they sit 12 points behind leaders FC Barcelona.

Victory for Zidane's side this afternoon will see them move to within in two points of second-place Atletico Madrid.

At the other end, Celta Vigo find themselves battling to avoid the drop as they sit in 18th spot, one point adrift of safety.

Celta come into the clash winless in their last five matches, with their last win coming against Sevilla on February 2nd.

When these sides met earlier in the season, Los Blancos ran out 4-2 winners at the Abanca-Balaídos.

Here's how they line up:

Celta Vigo: Rubén; Kevin, Costas, Araujo, Juncà; Yokuslu, Lobotka; Sisto, Brais Méndez, Boufal; Maxi Gómez.

Real Madrid: Keylor Navas; Odriozola, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Modric, Kroos, Isco; Bale, Benzema, Asensio.
