<div _ngcontent-c17 = "" insidehtml = "

As Barcelona drew with Real Madrid after a hard-fought 2-1 win over third-placed Getafe, it was important for Los Blancos to pick up the three points on Sunday against Celta Vigo.

A fun non-event was that they did not see Zinedine Zidane's accusations coming home easily from the first half.

However, Santi Mina's 85th-minute equalizer saw the score shared and Real are above the Catalans this weekend.

In fact, Celta's performance against their highly-contested rivals will surely inspire future visitors to the Santiago Bernabeu, with Barcelona following El Clasico in two weeks.

Real Madrid 2 (Kroos, Ramos) Celta Vigo 2 (Smolov, Mina)

Ramos giving a second example

Say you like Sergio Ramos, but Real plays well when their captain is there.

Not everyone is a cup of tea and his disciplinary record leaves a lot to be desired, but he is a born man.

For a warrior who enjoys his go-to or fight, his well-earned penalty gave the hosts the lead for the first time, after scoring early offside.

Even when Real left behind, Ramos never hid and went on to set an example. Front and center.

Exactly what you want from your captain.

Celta's goals reveal the weakness of Real's defense

If there is one thing that can often be declared a boss by Zidane, opponents will always find opportunities.

The same change, or more so far, has been the reason why Real have a table on their own.

When opposing teams were able to break the line, extraordinary defenses were back or Thibaut Courtois was in a world-class way to save his team.

What Fyodor Smolov told Celta's opening is that Real's defense can still be tailored specifically when, and if the pass is correct, little can be done to defend it.

The Messi-esque Messi-esque Iago Aspas was easy enough between the two center-backs, and Smolov was alive with the possibility of returning home.

Five minutes into the game, Denis Suarez scored another midfielder played in midfield for Los Blancos, looga again later dumped in the heel when Santi Mina has enthusiastically thrown out at home.

It was a well-taken finish yes, but another easy enough setup.

Barcelona's No.10 will fill his lips.

Return enough looga return Hazard

All talk before the game was about Eden Hazard's return after more than 80 days out.

Although not on the scoreboard, his movement and pace showed that Zidane was right to re-present the scoring now.

He adds something completely different to Real's front row, and they seem more dangerous and a reason to sit down with Karim Benzema.

The Belgian will now have more than a week to get his mouth back before Manchester City and Barcelona arrive.
