The Whites will be hoping to continue their impressive goal-scoring exploits when they visit Balaídos (8:45pm CET).
Real Madrid are back in LaLiga action just four days on from one of their best performances of the season against Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League. The Whites head to Balaídos to take on Celta (8:45pm CET) as they look to continue their fine goal-scoring form since Solari's arrival in the dugout.

They've won three in a row so far, one in each competition, and today they'll be hoping to add to that figure ahead of next week's international break. The madridistas have also kept clean sheets in all these games, netting 11 times in the process. “We're playing for three very important points and it's a very tough fixture against well-drilled opposition”, explained Solari in the press conference.

Celta have lost just once at home this season.

In their way are Celta, who have been a tough nut to crack at Balaídos this term, losing only once to date, against Alavés. Indeed, the Galician side have managed impressive wins over Atlético (2-0) and Éibar (4-0), picked up points against Espanyol (1-1), Getafe (1-1), Valladolid (3-3) and Real Sociedad (1-1).

Three games without a loss
Celta are currently on a three-match unbeaten run, drawing their last two. What's more, they've only failed to score in a single fixture this campaign. This of course reflects extremely well on their attacking options. Iago Aspas and Maxi Gómez have scored 15 of the team's 21 goals between them so far.
