    Well, that is that.

    The title race is back on in Spain!!

    Only kidding. But Real fans will sleep that little bit better tonight with Zizou back and their key players hitting the right notes again.

    It's just like 2016-17!

    We will be back for Real Betis v Barcelona on Sunday.

    Thanks for reading.

  2. Post update

    Real Madrid 2-0 Celta Vigo

    Yes, leaky-ish at the back but relentless in attack from Real.

    They remain a bit rusty, but once Bale and Isco are up to speed then it should be an interesting end to the La Liga season.

  3. FULL-TIME

    Real Madrid 2-0 Celta Vigo

    Zi-done.

  4. Post update

    Real Madrid 2-0 Celta Vigo

    Alvaro Odriozola goes down in the area under the challenge of Kevin Vazquez, but the ref is not having any of it.

    We are into stoppage.

    There won't be much of it.

  5. Post update

    Real Madrid 2-0 Celta Vigo

    So this win, and it will be a win, will move Real to within two points of Atletico who are at Bilbao at 17:30 GMT.

    They've not had a great week so far.

  6. Post update

    Real Madrid 2-0 Celta Vigo

    The match is already winding down and we still have six minutes remaining.

    Celta have produced some great attacks but been very wasteful around the edge of the area.

  7. SUBSTITUTION

    Real Madrid 2-0 Celta Vigo

    Karim Benzema receives a standing ovation as he is replaced by Mariano.

  8. GOAL - Real Madrid 2-0 Celta Vigo

    Gareth Bale

    Marcelo joins the attack - which he enjoys doing - and finds Gareth Bale - cutting in from the left - which is what he likes doing - who fires a low effort in off Ruben Blanco's right-hand upright.

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Real Madrid 1-0 Celta Vigo

    Young Federico Valverde comes on for Luka Modric.

    Stop...hammer time...

  10. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Celta Vigo

    Real Madrid earn another corner but Celta manage to clear their lines...but the ball is back in the possession of Marco Asensio on the right.

  11. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Celta Vigo

    Celta break so so well but the final ball is woeful.

    On this occasion Andrew Hjulsager plays a terrible ball after finding himself of the edge of the area.

    At the other end Karim Benzema volleys a low effort but it's just about dealt with by Ruben Blanco.

  12. Post update

    Real Madrid 1-0 Celta Vigo

    Gareth Bale makes a beeline towards goal but just as he's about to shoot from eight yards he slips.

    The forward still manages to get a shot away but it's easily hooked away by the foot of keeper Ruben Blanco.

  13. GOAL - Real Madrid 1-0 Celta Vigo

    Isco

    No need for VAR this time.

    Marco Asensio makes a diagonal run and spreads the ball out to Karim Benzema on the left.

    The Frenchman delivers a low square ball across the six-yard area and finds Isco who pokes home.

    Isco is then substituted for Dani Ceballos.

    What reward.

  14. Post update

    Real Madrid 0-0 Celta Vigo

    Sofiane Boufal almost makes up for that moment in Celta's counter-attack with a shot that is pushed away low by Keylor Navas.

    Notjhing comes from the resulting corner.

    This match is very much in the balance - Real fans would have hoped they would be leading by now...

    Woah!...We have a goal...

  15. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Luka Modric

    Luka Modric fires a bouncing bomb of an effort from 20 yards that beats the reach of Ruben Blanco.

    But VAR is having a look to see if there were any Real players offside and interfering.

    Ref Martinez Munuera runs over to look at the replay and judges that Raphael Varane was offside and interfering - in this case, preventing keeper Blanco from possibly saving Modric's effort.

  16. Post update

    Real Madrid 0-0 Celta Vigo

    Real lose the ball.

    Celta break - it's three against two.

    Brais Mendez plays it wide to Sofiane Boufal.

    Er... Boufal sidefoots a pass from 20 yards to Keylor Navas.

    An extraordinary awful conclusion to the counter.

  17. Post update

    Real Madrid 0-0 Celta Vigo

    Luka Modric plays in Isco but just as the Spain international is about to shoot Wesley Hoedt puts in a vital block.

    Has Isco been that little bit sharper then he might have jinked away from Hoedt.

  18. Post update

    Real Madrid 0-0 Celta Vigo

    Real win a corner on the right - can they make this count?

    Nope, it's headed away by Brais Mendez.

    Richard Browne: Zidane will be fascinating to watch. First time he inherited an amazing squad and his CL runs were under some lucky star. But he knew where things were headed, can he build a team?

  20. Post update

    Real Madrid 0-0 Celta Vigo

    The second half has started at 100mph (160 kph) which has mainly seen many players going to ground - feisty!
