Celta Vigo Player Ratings: Almost Got The Better Of The Los Blancos!

Iván Villar 6.5/10: Made a mistake by giving away the penalty, but also redeemed himself by saving it. In the end, couldn’t stop Bellingham away from finding the back of the net.

Franco Cervi 7/10: A good defensive performance, won all the attempted ground duels. Didn’t go forward that much.

Unai Núñez 6.5/10: Average game from the Spanish defender. A good supplier of the ball from the back. Defensively, he lost more duels than he won.

Carl Starfelt 6/10: Had an average game, was good with his passes, and didn’t do much defensively.

Joseph Aidoo 6.5/10: A good game from the Ghanaian defender. Nullified the aerial threats from the Madrid strikers. But couldn’t find his teammates with his long balls.

Óscar Mingueza 7/10: A good attacking performance from the wingback. Got the ball forward a lot more, and covered a lot of ground, but missed a great chance.

Jonathan Bamba 7/10: A key player in the Celta Vigo attack tonight. Got the better of Rudiger and Carvajal a couple of times and seemed very dangerous.

Luca De La Torre 6/10: Good passing to keep the possession, other than that, didn’t do much.

Fran Beltrán 5.5/10: His performance was lower than average, didn’t impact the game as he was supposed to, and lost possession quite a few times.

Iago Aspas 7/10: Despite having a decent game, Cleta Vigo’s superstar couldn’t become a threat to Real Madrid’s defense. Although he created some chances that were not converted.

Jørgen Strand Larsen 6.5/10: His opposing team-mate, Fran Garcia could not really contain him. He did seem like a threat and scored within three minutes but his goal was disallowed.


Manuel Sánchez 6/10: Although he played a full half as a sub, couldn’t contribute to the game much.

Renato Tapia 6/10: Only played for 13 minutes and didn’t leave an impact.

Miguel Rodriguez 5/10: Played for 9 minutes and didn’t contribute much.

Real Madrid Player Ratings: Jude Bellingham Can’t Stop Scoring!

Kepa Arriza­balaga 7.5/10: Had a really good game. Denied the Celta Vigo strikers a lot of the time.

Daniel Carvajal 7/10: The Real captain was everywhere on the pitch. Served on both the offensive and defensive sides of the team.

Antonio Rüdiger 7/10: Antonio Rudiger wasn’t quite as impenetrable as usual. Bamba won against him a couple of times.

David Alaba 6/10: Was not his usual self. Made some good interceptions and blocks but did not have a good performance.

Fran García 5/10: Could not really keep his counterpart in check who almost scored in the third minute of the game. Also, made some blunders that left Larsen open.

Federico Valverde 8/10: Played everywhere on the pitch, and had the most touches and passes of the game.

Aurélien Tchouaméni 7/10: Had good control of the midfield, but couldn’t really stand out. Was subbed off in the 62nd minute.

Eduardo Camavinga 7/10: Wasn’t his usual self, and didn’t tear through defenses like he usually does. Was subbed off in the 62nd minute.

Jude Bellingham 8.5/10: Saved Real Madrid from sharing points. Scored the only goal of the game to secure the win.

Vinícius Júnior 6/10: Got injured in the 18 minutes, and didn’t do much.

Rodrygo 7.5/10: Won the penalty but couldn’t score from the spot. He was brilliant with the ball and dribbled through the defense but couldn’t finish.


Joselu 7/10: Provided the assist for the Bellingham goal, other than that nothing special.

Modric 6/10: Not a good game from the veteran, unimpactful.

Kroos 6/10: Same as his midfield partner, not much of an impact.

Nacho 6/10: Did well to hold off the opponent for 10 minutes.

Celta Vigo vs. Real Madrid Match Summary and Highlights

In a thrilling encounter between Celta Vigo and Real Madrid, the drama unfolded within the first three minutes as Jorgen Strand Larsen’s apparent opener for Celta was disallowed after a VAR review, ruling a foul on the Madrid goalkeeper.

Real Madrid faced a tough challenge, exacerbated by Vinicius Junior’s early exit due to a suspected hamstring injury. His replacement, Joselu, couldn’t quite fill the superstar’s shoes.

Celta Vigo maintained their threat throughout the first half, with Oscar Mingueza missing a golden opportunity. Madrid finally found some attacking momentum before halftime, with Joselu netting, albeit from an offside position.

The second half saw a more spirited Real Madrid, with Federico Valverde narrowly missing a clear-cut chance. The pivotal moment arrived when Rodrygo was fouled in the box by Ivan Villar, only for Villar to make a fantastic save from the ensuing penalty.

In the 80th minute, England’s rising star, Jude Bellingham, broke the deadlock with a header, securing his fourth goal in three La Liga games. Celta Vigo did try their best but could not recover from this in the end.

Man of the Match

Bagging four goals in merely three games, the ex-Borussia Dortmund sensation seems like a steal rather than a splurge. With Vinicius sidelined, Jude Bellingham’s emergence as a goal-scoring midfielder could be a game-changer for Real Madrid’s La Liga aspirations.
