Sports Mole looks at how Real Madrid could line up in Sunday's La Liga clash with Celta Vigo.
By , Football Editor | 5d

Real Madrid will be looking to put a sixth straight La Liga victory on the board when they welcome relegation-threatened Celta Vigo to the Spanish capital on Sunday night.

Los Blancos are currently top of the pile with 52 points, three clear of the reigning champions Barcelona following five straight victories in Spain's top flight.

Zinedine Zidane's side have only actually lost once in the league this season, while they are unbeaten against 17th-placed Celta in La Liga at the Bernabeu since November 2006.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the capital outfit could line up on home soil.



Out: Marco Asensio (knee)
Doubtful: Eden Hazard (ankle), James Rodriguez (hip)

Marco Asensio will again miss out for Madrid as the Spaniard continues to recover from a knee problem, but Eden Hazard is in line to return to the squad having overcome an ankle injury.

The Belgium international has not turned out for Zidane's team since the end of November but has trained throughout the week and is expected to be on the bench for this match.

James Rodriguez also took part in full-contact training on Friday, although the clash with Celta is expected to come too soon for the Colombian, who has been struggling with a hip problem.

Gareth Bale is also available despite picking up a sprained finger in the 4-1 win over Osasuna last weekend.

Lucas Vazquez could take Bale's spot in the XI, though, and there is also expected to be a return for Toni Kroos as the Germany international was an unused substitute against Osasuna.

Ferland Mendy has displaced Marcelo to become Zidane's preferred choice at left-back, meanwhile, and that is expected to be the case once again for this weekend's contest.
