2 vs. 0

-
Well that was one heck of an evening of Liga action. Somehow, none of the top 3 could win against vastly inferior opposition.
-
Late drama in Madrid as Caballero makes a blinding save and it goes down to the wire!! Barca can still win the title!
-
Meanwhile, Elche have drawn with Barca! If Atletico get a late goal, they win the title!!
90+3
Full time and Real Madrid have lost 2-0 and their title bid is over. All eyes on Barca and Atletico now...
90+3
ALMOST THREE! Bermejo off the bar as he raced clear! My oh my.
90+2
Another miss as Celta swarm forward. Real leaving holes at the back.
90+1
Celta could be in for a third as Lopez wriggles away but the shot is blocked.
90'
Three minutes added time at Celta; FIVE at the Calderon. Yikes!
88'
SAVE BY LOPEZ FROM LOPEZ! And a double save as Jonny tried to poach! Alex Lopez's shot was superb, but Diego's save was even better!
87'
Nice shot from Willian Jose but easy for Alvarez.
86'
Meanwhile, Malaga are down to 10 men and Atletico have a free-kick; Elche have also just hit the post! Yikes!!
84'
This match is becoming increasingly redundant - so I am going to point you in the direction of Atletico v Malaga, where the magic could happen...

83'
Lopez rather shakily drops a simple cross from Mandinda. Not sure anyone can say he's superior to Casillas any more.
82'
GREAT SAVE ALVAREZ! Fantastic drive from Illarramendi but an even better save from the Celta keeper!
81'
Madrid come forward again but Morata can't get a header in.
80'
All a bit hectic in La Liga tonight - Real swarming forward, having realised that they perhaps should not have treated this match as a dead rubber.
79'
Atletico, meanwhile, just missed a great chance to go 2-1 up. Barca still goalless at Elche.
78'
Another Alonso free-kick but the line is perfect. Free-kick for offside.
77'
 
JUST WIDE BY RAMOS! Super free-kick from Alonso, and Ramos lost his marker thanks to some smart collective movement from his team-mates - but hang on, the flag is up. Offside in the end.

Just a booking for Cabral. Lucky boy. Free-kick Madrid....
75'
IT'S KICKING OFF! Manbags in Vigo as Ramos pulls his team-mates away from Cabral...
74'
Cabral goes in late with a high boot and will be lucky to stay on!
73'
Phew. All rather tense. Real will secretly hope their decision to effectively blank this match won't come back to haunt them.

ATLETICO HAVE EQUALISED. So someone does want to win La Liga. Phew. 1-1, one more and if Barca don't score, Atletico win the title.

71'
Charles is giving Real a right going over. Madrid just aren't up for the fight, even if they did improve after half time.
Celta de Vigo Substitution
69'
 
MADRID SUB: Willian Jose replaces Casemiro.
Real Madrid Substitution
68'
If Real Madrid had got out of bed and fielded a first XI tonight - and the other two results hold - they would have been able to win La Liga next week with a draw between Atletico and Barca (bangs head on desk).
Celta de Vigo Substitution
66'
Morata races down the left again but his low drive is well stopped by Alvarez. Corner.
65'
NEWS FROM MADRID - Atletico are 1-0 down to Malaga! Spain's capital whined about a conspiracy but they've contrived to mess it up without any external pressure!
64'
Real were dominating the second half but another terrible individual error gifts Celta a second.
63'
 
GOAL CELTA AND ALONSO WITH A MASSIVE BOO-BOO! Just after they went close to scoring, Real had to deal with a basic long ball - Alonso tried to pass it back to Lopez but played it straight to Charles, who rounds the keeper and rolls it into the empty net.
Celta de Vigo Goal

Right Footed - Bottom Center

62'
GOOD SAVE ALVAREZ! Isco with a great volley after a deep cross to the far post, but the Celta keeper does well to hold on!
60'
Ramos heads over as Real continue to pressurise the hosts.
59'
Real are taking the game to Celta now. Ancelotti must have given them a right blast - the senior players in particular are playing for a place in the CL final!
57'
 
CELTA SUB: Alez Lopez is on for the stricken Fernandez.
Celta de Vigo Substitution
Real Madrid Substitution
56'
 
REAL MADRID SUB: Coentrao on for Khedira, who lasts just under an hour on his run-out following a serious injury.
Real Madrid Substitution
55'
Meanwhile, Celta's Fernandez is injured, having picked up a knock earlier. He is carried off.
54'
THAT WAS A DIVE! Diego Lopez pulls out of the challenge as Nolito surges through, but the Celta man has made his mind up and hurls himself to the deck. No penalty.
53'
WHAT A SAVE BY ALVAREZ! Morata with a fizzing drive to the top left but the keeper somehow gets a hand on it! Corner.
52'
Modric is convinced he was fouled but the replay shows minimal contact and a bad miss. Well, he gets a corner somehow.
51'
WHAT A MISS! Modric hooks it over from two yards after a wonderful run and cross by Marcelo!
50'
 
GOAL DISALLOWED! Offside as Ramos gets in behind to score. Four of them went too soon for that free kick.
49'
Rafinha fouls Casemiro and the ref has a word with the former of the two Brazilians (unlike his brother, Rafinha declares for Brazil).
48'
Much better from Real as Isco races away, feeding Marcelo who cuts into the box but sees his shot blocked.
47'
CHANCE FOR RAMOS! Blocked as he gets on to the knockdown. He's been scoring for fun recently but not this time.
46'
The second half is underway.
45'
Half-time and Real Madrid are trailing Celta Vigo 1-0. This would formally end their title hopes, whatever happens with Barca and Atletico.
43'
Real Madrid have been really poor, although to be fair this is a weakened team. Still, you'd expect more from a team with Modric, Ramos, Marcelo, Isco and Khedira in it.
Celta de Vigo Goal

Right Footed - Top Center

42'
Ramos was dithering there, he thought he was fouled but it was slack from the Spain defender. Great finish from Charles.
41'
 
GOAL CELTA VIGO! Charles with a rasping finish from the angle after rounding Diego Lopez. Fantastic run after robbing Ramos.
38'
Marcelo with an audacious effort but it's off target in the end. An air of the dead rubber about this match.
36'
Rafinha knocks Modric's ball behind for a second corner. But Ramos commits a foul and Celta have a free-kick.
35'
Madrid counter through Isco on the left, he cuts in and tries a snap-shot which Alvarez does well to palm behind for a corner!
34'
Marcelo tries to take the initiative but, after a nice turn and shimmy, he runs into a defender and is now out of position...
32'
Celta have a corner on the right. Orellana takes, half-cleared and Augusto has a dig but it goes well wide.
31'
Khedira tries one of those bustling runs of his but he walks into a wall of sky blue and Celta clear.
29'
Modric gives it away, Celta break with Nolito racing down the left, fine ball FOR CHARLES but he makes a mess of the finish! Didn't know whether to shoot or take a touch.
27'
Poor corner again and Celta clear. This is not vintage Real by any means.
26'
Real get forward with Morata haring down the left, fine rising drive too but the Celta keeper palms it behind for a corner.
24'
Casemiro is down holding his calf and may need treatment.
23'
Casemiro is caught by Charles, who should have been booked but appears to have got away with it.
22'
Khedira with a deep, hanging cross that stands up for Isco, but his volley is poor, high and wide.
20'
Rafinha is Thiago's brother. You know, he of Barcelona then Bayern fame. He looks pretty lively too.
19'
Orellana is on the run again, finding Rafinha, who is chopped down clumsily my Marcelo. Free-kick to Celta on the right wing.
18'
Goalless in the other two major Liga matches, by the away. At the other end of the table, suburban Madrid side Getafe are fighting for their lives. They could get relegated after exactly 10 years in the top flight.
Celta de Vigo Yellow card

Celta

Real Madrid

16'
According to the stats Real have had 62% possession but I find that hard to believe. They have had a fair bit in their own half, but - as AvB would say - it's not been very vertical.
14'
Even the set pieces look half-cocked, as Celta clear far too easily and under no pressure at all.
13'
Madrid finally get forward after a good 10 minutes under the kosh. A corner on the left.
11'
Augusto just about stays onside and should be in here but he rushes the shot and sends it well wide.
9'
All Celta at the moment! Real just sitting deep and hacking it clear!
8
Marcelo clears Nolito's corner to touch for a throw. Could be all about Celta today!
7'
Another corner to Celta as Orellana gets in behind the Real defence. Good block Nacho.
6'
Nolito earns a corner for Celta after excellent play from Rafinha. All that talk of a conspiracy between Luis Enrique and Barca is a bit flat now that Real are basically out of it.
4'
Modric to take, lofting it high into the box but Celta get it clear.
3'
After a cagey start, Real find some fluency to their play and win a corner on the right.
1'
The first half is underway!
17:55
So the big news is that, as expected, Cristiano Ronaldo is rested with the Champions League final in mind. But not just that, Karim Benzema is also out, with Gareth Bale benched. Loads of youngsters involved too - Casemiro, Nacho and Morata start, with Burgui, Willian Jose and Raul de Tomas. Also, Sami Khedira starts for Madrid, great news for Germany, who named them in his World Cup squad.
