Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid: how and where to watch - times, TV, online
All the info you need on how, where and when to watch the LaLiga fixture between Celta Vigo and Real Madrid on Saturday 20 March, 2021.
Real Madrid have the opportunity to move into second place in the league on Saturday, ahead of Barcelona, while applying a little extra pressure on Atlético with the current top two both in action on Sunday. Ronald Koeman’s side facing a banana skin away at Real Sociedad while Diego Simeone’s leader host Alavés. To do so, Zinedine Zidane’s side will have to negotiate their way past a Celta outfit who have lost only one of their last eight and have been much improved since the arrival of Eduardo Coudet at Balaídos. Subscribers in the US can enjoy the game on Fanatiz.
Madrid are currently six points behind Atlético and two adrift of Barça with a Clásico on the horizon, sandwiched between a Champions League double header against Liverpool, and Zidane’s side have probably ridden about as much luck in LaLiga as they can reasonably expect if they want to remain in the title reckoning. Comeback wins against Huesca and Elche hardly smack of the imperiousness Madrid sides of yore and late, late goals were required to see off both sides. While the hallmark of champions is invention in the face of adversity, Madrid have too been accommodating defensively and not clinical enough in front of goal to regularly turn draws into wins, although Karim Benzema’s late equalizer in the Metropolitano could yet prove to be a decisive moment in the title race. Zidane’s 2020-21 Madrid vintage is not one that linger long on the palate of history, but they are still in the mix.
Celta are capable of the ridiculous and the sublime in equal measure, putting two past Atlético away a few weeks ago – no mean feat – but shipping four at home against Villarreal shortly before that. Coudet’s side shared seven goals in a game against Huesca that had “draw” written all over it then went out days later and failed to find the net against a weary Athletic side playing their second fixture in three days. But if Iago Aspas is firing anything is possible and Celta, finally are playing like a side worthy of their wealth of talent having avoided the drop by a single point last season.
