Iago Aspas will be fit to play against Real Madrid on Saturday after recovering from a hamstring injury sustained against Barcelona on April 17.

The Spain international, who is the highest national scorer in the league this season with 20 goals to his name – behind only Leo Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suárez – has missed Celta’s last three Liga fixtures, all of which Juan Carlos Unzué’s side have lost.

Unfortunately for the Celta boss, he will have to do without Pione Sisto in the Bernabéu. The Danish playmaker, who stands joint-fourth in terms of assists in the league this season, has a minor muscle injury and has not been included in Unzué’s squad.

Also absent is Emre Mor, Celta’s record signing, who has been frozen out by Unzué following a series of disciplinary issues.

Nemanja Radoja is also available again after recovering from injury, the Serbia international defensive midfielder also having missed the side’s last three games.

Celta squad for Real Madrid game

Sergio, Rubén, Hugo Mallo, Sergi Gómez, Fontàs, Cabral, Roncaglia, Jonny, Mazán, Lobotka, Tucu Hernández, Radoja, Wass, Jozabed, Brais, Boyé, Iago Aspas, Maxi Gómez.
