Analysis:

On Wednesday night, Real Madrid will host Celtic, who have already been eliminated, in an attempt to clinch the title.

Real Madrid

The defeats to RB Leipzig on Tuesday and the draw with Girona over the weekend in LaLiga were Los Blancos' first competitive defeat since April. Just five days after Leipzig ended their 20-game undefeated record across all competitions, the outcome now puts Real Madrid one point ahead of Barcelona in the rankings.

Celtic FC

While Celtic's Champions League campaign is mathematically over, after a 1-1 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk sealed their place at the bottom of Group F last Tuesday. But they continue to look imperious in the league, as they made it 10 wins from 11 in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.

Prediction

We should expect a respectable, if unspectacular, victory for the talented hosts as Los Blancos must win to maintain their lead over Celtic in the standings.


Pick: Real Madrid -1.5

Total: Over 3 Goals
