SIt is almost 15 years since the last Celtic triumph in the Santiago Bernabeu. It was on November 5, 2006 by 1-2, with so many Emerson for Real Madrid and Nené and Jorge Lorena for the Celts. Those of Coudet, orphans of triumphs in the start of the championship, they will look for the machado on the night of this Sunday.
The triumph of three decades ago was the sixth, and last to date, of the Vigo in Madrid fiefdom. Curiously, on the last visit, two seasons ago since last year the match was played in Valdebebas, then trained by Oscar Garcia they tied at two goals.
With this the Celts are presented in Madrid. Party for which Coudet will be able to count on all of its troops, including Araújo and Tapia and that they were the last to return to Vigo after international commitments. In both cases, with long movements in the backpack and many minutes of play on the legs. Even with everything, Murillo is emerging as the only novelty in the eleven, after closing his third assignment in Vigo with the closing of the market.
Javier Maté, history of Celtism and that he made his debut with the first team of the Real Madrid, stated on Radio MARCA that he expects a good game from those of Coudet: “Celta are going to play well because by letting their players feel comfortable they know how to do many things. The key will be to increase performance from midfield forward. That is to say that Denis Suarez, Nolito, Iago Aspas and all these people, who have to get a better point, be right. I think they will play a good game, enough to get a point in the Santiago Bernabeu?, it is not disposable but it is always difficult because the Real Madrid he has a tremendous virtue and that is that even if he doesn’t play well he is capable of winning. “
Of course, for this he understands that the Celtic must leave behind the negative statistics of the last two days, in which did not fire a single shot between the three sticks: “It is difficult to explain that statistic. Players have for it. I think it is more a question of creativity and having a greater offensive flow than aim. Celtic Not only is it hard for him to finish the chances, he is having a hard time creating them in good circumstances. “
