FT: Celta 0-1 Real Madrid

as.com

The whistle sounds and Real Madrid record their third win in a row to move onto nine points.

Jude Bellingham was on target for the side from the capital after Rodrygo saw a spot kick saved by Villar.

The only concern for Carlo Ancelotti will be the Vinicius injury after the Brazilian was forced to retire from the action early in the first half with what looked like a serious hamstring issue. 

Celta still winless all season and the side from Galicia could certainly do with some reinforcements as has been suggested by new manager Rafa Benitez.
