Real Madrid CF got 15 attempts at goal with 11 of them on target. Karim Benzema (24', 46', 87'), Vinicius Júnior (54') and Eduardo Camavinga (72') scored for Real Madrid.
It’s not been often in recent games where Celta Vigo have shown defensive steel. In fact, Celta Vigo have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 12 goals on the way. Regardless, we’ll just have to find out if that pattern shall be sustained in this next match.
Leading up to this clash, Celta Vigo:
- are unbeaten in the league by Cádiz in their last 3 matches.
- haven’t won at home in the past 3 league games.
After tasting defeat last time out to Real Sociedad in La Liga competition, Cádiz and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, Cádiz managed 22% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 1 on target. Real Sociedad had 16 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Mikel Oyarzabal (71', 84') was the scorer for Real Sociedad.
Cádiz have been effective going forward in their most recent fixtures, having scored 7 goals in their previous 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that Cádiz have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same games.
Looking at their past form shows that Cádiz:
- are winless against Celta Vigo when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 league matches. Not good at all.
- are undefeated in their last 2 away league matches.
- are without a win away from home in their last 3 league games.

The Celta Vigo boss Eduardo Coudet will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this game owing to a completely healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: Cádiz
Due to a mostly available group, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Cádiz manager Álvaro Cervera to be concerned with. Jon Ander Garrido (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
Celta Vigo will, in all likelihood, convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
