Real Madrid resume their campaign this weekend with a long-anticipated return to Real’s home ground, the Bernabeu. As such, this would be a special match. Not only will the fans be there to cheer Los Blancos ON, but, this would also be the first home game of the season after starting the season with three back-to-back games on the road.
Real Madrid collected seven of the available nine points from the first three games and went into the International break as the leaders of LaLiga. They would be expected to continue their form as they eye a victory at the Bernabeu against a visiting Celta side. Here are the three keys to abide by and ensure that victory.
1. Contain key player, Iago Aspas
The first thing to keep in mind is to not allow Celta’s Iago Aspas abundance of space and opportunities. It would be the biggest key for the White defense. Iago Aspas is figuratively a Celta legend. He is the only goalscorer so far in the league for the side. Although it was a penalty converted against Jan Oblak, Aspas has a few tricks up his sleeve to frustrate Real Madrid.
Despite being a Centre-Forward, Iago Aspas’s play-making abilities are next to none. He had a healthy assisting record last season and this season too, he has been Celta’s best outfield player per Sofascore. Only, goalkeeper Matias Dituro has a better match rating after three games in the league.
