Davide Ancelotti to take over for Real Madrid vs. Celta Vigo

Real Madrid CF announced earlier this week that manager Carlo Ancelotti tested positive for Covid-19. As such, his son and long-time assistant, Davide Ancelotti, will be in charge of Los Blancos when they return to La Liga action on Saturday night against Celta Vigo.

Los Blancos will be making the trip to Balaidos after the international break, and they will be hoping for a good result to offset the humiliation suffered at El Clasico. Real Madrid are still on top of La Liga with a 9-point lead over Sevilla and with Barcelona a further three points down. However, they will want another victory to keep a firm grip on the title.

The morale in the dressing room isn’t the best after the 4-0 defeat against Barcelona, and they will need a victory to get the spirits up. Carlo is expected to still make the decisions regarding the starting lineup, but Davide will be in full control from the sidelines during the match itself.
