Real travelled to Vigo without Dani Carvajal, striker Karim Benzema and captain Sergio Ramos while Celta, who knocked Real out of the King's Cup last season, were emboldened after drawing 1-1 with Barca in the Cup on Thursday.

Both league leaders, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid return to Liga Santander action on Sunday with game at home to Levante and away to Celta Vigo.

Gareth Bale instantly responded by scoring twice in three minutes to put the stuttering champions in front before halftime but Celta came right back at Zinedine Zidane's side, with Iago Aspas squandering a penalty before Maxi Gomez levelled with a header in the 82nd minute. I don't think that he could have done any better on the first goal'.

Not with the first half, but with the second.

"We do what we can, we try to play good football, score goals and circulate the ball, but it's not happening for us".

"We'll try to work hard and fight so we can win our next game but we don't like this situation at all, it's difficult because the more games you draw or lose the more pressure you are under".

Having played their first match of the year in the city of Soria on Thursday evening in the Copa Del Rey against Numancia, Real Madrid are on the road once more this weekend for their first league encounter in 2018.

The last time Real were 16 points behind the Liga leaders was during Jose Mourinho's tension-filled final campaign in 2012-13, when they finished 15 points adrift of Barca. If that changes by June or if we sit down and talk about it, we may sign players in certain positions. "Having said that, like always I'm more interested in what we are going to do tomorrow", the Frenchman added.

"We're sad and we're f****** sunk", Marcelo said after the match.
