Aggressive Celta Vigo Extend Real Madrid's Away-Day Woes

  • Chelsea are prepared to sell David Luiz if the right offer comes in this month

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.

Real Madrid is suffering in the league this season.

Celta drew 1-1 at home to Barca in the Cup and took a 2-2 draw from the Camp Nou earlier this campaign and pacey strikers Iago Aspas and Pione Sisto, as well as the powerful Maxi Gomez will be a handful for a Madrid defense missing the suspended Dani Carvajal and the injured Sergio Ramos.

They have a game in hand but on current form there are no guarantees they will be able to use it to close the gap on the runaway leaders.

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. Despite the fact they have played fewer games than every side above them, they remain a massive 14 points short of Barcelona at the top, with the leaders having only played one more game than Real.

Suarez struck his fifth goal in four games running by controlling a cross from Sergi Roberto and slamming the ball high into the net in the 38th minute.
