Sunday action for Barca and Real Madrid

Share

Real Madrid players feel like their La Liga title hopes are "sinking" into a black hole after they let a 2-1 lead against Celta Vigo slip through their fingers in the final eight minutes, leaving them 16 points adrift of leaders Barcelona.

Zidane has seen his squad hit by a number of casualties this season, with club-record signing Gareth Bale a prime culprit.

Gareth Bale was one of a handful of Real first team regulars on display at the Estadio Los Pajaritos, and was on hand to slot home the first from the penalty spot ten minutes before the break after Lucas Vazques was clumsily brought down in the box by Carlos Gutierrez.

"We can't do anything more, we're trying to play good football, to move the ball around and score goals but it's not coming off".

ZINEDINE ZIDANE believes that players who suffer bad injuries could also be having personal problems off the field. I don't think that he could have done any better on the first goal'. "It's a good result for us".

"We have to analyse our game in depth".

Defending champions Madrid and their stuttering season continued on Monday (AEDT), held to a 2-2 draw by hosts Celta Vigo.

Real looked to be heading for a second successive league defeat after their 3-0 loss to Barca in their last outing when Daniel Wass lobbed over Keylor Navas to put Celta ahead in the 33rd minute.

Bale made his first start in the league since September 20 after finally recovering from persistent muscle problems and pulled Real level after Wass's strike with a slick first-time finish before giving them the lead by knocking a pass from Isco in with his back heel. "Having said that, like always I'm more interested in what we are going to do tomorrow", the Frenchman added.

"We have to stop making these errors and be more consistent".
