  1. Goodbye

    Celta Vigo 1-3 Real Madrid

    Thanks for joining me this afternoon.

    Until next time!

  2. FULL-TIME

    Celta Vigo 1-3 Real Madrid

    And there goes the final whistle.

    Ten-man Real kick off their La Liga campaign with an impressive victory.

  3. Post update

    Celta Vigo 1-3 Real Madrid

    Too little, too late for Celta, it would seem.

    We're into the final minute of stoppage time.

  4. GOAL - Celta Vigo 1-3 Real Madrid

    Iker Losada

    A consolation for the hosts!

    He's only been on the field three minutes, but Iker Losada gets his name on the scoresheet with a powerful finish into the far corner of Thibaut Courtois' net.

  5. SUBSTITUTION

    Celta Vigo 0-3 Real Madrid

    Iker Losada replaces Augusto Fernandez in Celta's third and final change.

  6. Post update

    Celta Vigo 0-3 Real Madrid

    Five minutes of normal time to go.

    Three-nil is harsh on Celta, but Real won't care one bit.

  7. Post update

    Celta Vigo 0-3 Real Madrid

    The hosts make their second substitution of the evening as Pape Cheick replaces Brais Mendez.

    Pione Sisto came on for Stanislav Lobotka a few minutes ago.

  8. SUBSTITUTION

    Celta Vigo 0-3 Real Madrid

    Final change for Real as summer signing Luka Jovic comes on for Karim Benzema.

  9. GOAL - Celta Vigo 0-3 Real Madrid

    Lucas Vazquez

    What a lovely goal this is!

    A sublime passing move ends with Karim Benzema teeing up Lucas Vazquez, who slots past the goalkeeper with a confident finish.

    Game, set and match!

  10. CLOSE!

    Celta Vigo 0-2 Real Madrid

    Lucas tries his luck from a promising position but the attacker's effort flies wide of the post.

    Could Real get a third?

  11. YELLOW CARD

    Celta Vigo 0-2 Real Madrid

    David Costas is cautioned for a late challenge on Karim Benzema.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Celta Vigo 0-2 Real Madrid

    Gareth Bale comes off to a standing ovation from the away supporters.

    Isco replaces the Welshman for the final quarter of an hour.

  13. CLOSE!

    Celta Vigo 0-2 Real Madrid

    This just hasn't been Iago Aspas' day.

    The striker misses the target with a curling effort from outside the penalty area that had Thibaut Courtois scrambling across his goal.

  14. Post update

    Celta Vigo 0-2 Real Madrid

    Thibaut Courtois has not had a save to make since Toni Kroos' wonder goal.

    The hosts are still enjoying the lion's share of the ball but aren't doing an awful lot with it at the moment.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Celta Vigo 0-2 Real Madrid

    Zinedine Zidane makes his first change of the afternoon as Lucas Vazquez replaces Vinicius Junior.

  16. Post update

    Celta Vigo 0-2 Real Madrid

    It's all gone very quiet at the Estadio Municipal de Balaidos.

    The home fans were buoyed by Modric's dismissal, but Kroos' stunning effort has put Real on course for three points.

    Still 25 minutes plus stoppage time to go, though.

  17. GOAL - Celta Vigo 0-2 Real Madrid

    Toni Kroos

    PICK THAT ONE OUT!

    This has to be an early contender for goal of the season from Toni Kroos. The Germany midfielder collects the ball 25 yards out, takes a touch and fires the ball into the net off the underside of the crossbar.

    The Balaidos is stunned into silence once more!

  18. GREAT SAVE

    Thibaut Courtois pulls off a fantastic save to prevent Araujo's header from nestling in the back of the net. So close to an equaliser for the home side.

    Real are on the ropes here...

  19. RED CARD

    Celta Vigo 0-1 Real Madrid

    The referee goes across to the screen to have a closer look at that challenge by Modric.

    He comes back across and pulls out the red card! The Croatian midfielder definitely caught Suarez's heel, but was it deliberate?

    Real are down to 10 men. Can Celta capitalise?

  20. Post update

    Celta Vigo 0-1 Real Madrid

    Celta Vigo have made a bright start to the second half.

    The hosts play the ball out to the left and Luka Modric is penalised for a late challenge. What's the referee going to do here?
