Sports Mole previews Real Madrid's trip to Celta Vigo on Sunday evening.

Real Madrid travel to Estadio de Balaidos on Sunday evening as the form team in La Liga, having picked up five wins from their last six games.

Meanwhile, hosts Celta Vigo have won just once in their last six matches and that form has seen them drop into the relegation zone, two points adrift of safety.

Jose Mourinho's side followed up their 2-1 win over Barcelona last weekend by knocking Manchester United out of the Champions League in midweek.

However, Celta Vigo will be encouraged by the fact that Madrid lost 1-0 to relegation-threatened Granada on February 2.

Diego Lopez may keep his place in the Madrid goal, despite Iker Casillas returning to training last week. Karim Benzema could replace Gonzalo Higuain in the starting XI after being dropped to the bench for the 2-1 win over Manchester United.

Celta Vigo coach Abel Resino could name the same XI which were beaten 4-1 by Sevilla last weekend.
