All is not well at Real Madrid and the world’s second-best player Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, isn’t happy about it. It looks highly unlikely that Los Blancos will be able to catch Barcelona at the top after losing to their rivals Atletico Madrid last time out, but they will want to put things right against Celta Vigo for their suffering fans.

It’s been a heartbreaking season if you’re a Real fan having to watch your two great rivals — Barcelona led by the enigmatic Brazilian superstar Neymar and Atletico Madrid duke it out in the league as Real struggles to find its feet.
They sit in third place in La Liga and could end up without a trophy after they were expelled from the Copa Del Rey for fielding an ineligible player. Realistically, there only hope of winning something this season is in the Champions League, but that’ll be a big ask with Bayern Munich and Barcelona in the hunt.
Still, it can’t be forgotten that there are still 33 points to be won in La Liga. And although they sit 9 points behind Barcelona with just 11 games to go, they could pounce if their rivals slip up.
A good starting point would be to prove a point at home to Celta Vigo who have leaked goals this season — 44 in their 27 games. Their poor defense could be torn apart by an attacking Real line-up that’ll feature soccer hunk Cristiano alongside Rihanna‘s once-upon-a-time boyfriend Karim Benzema up top.
It seems unthinkable that Real won’t win this, but there a lot of internal problems in Madrid at the moment. Recent reports suggested that star players Cristiano and Sergio Ramos handed in transfer requests after their Atletico defeat, as per Sport.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Real can get themselves back into the La Liga race with a win? Or is their championship push over? Sound off to us below
