However, for Real Madrid, while Santiago Solari is doing relatively well for the La Liga giants, the search for a brand new manager still goes on.

Speaking after the 4-2 La Liga victory at Celta Vigo which gave Solari a fourth consecutive win since succeeding Lopetegui last month, he said: "The important thing is to do what is necessary for the good of the team, everything else doesn't matter". The Belgium global was preferred to Keylor Navas in the European match for the first time this season but he will continue playing in the La Liga Santander as well.

Real Madrid are up to sixth in the table and are now just four points behind the league leaders following Barcelona's defeat to Real Betis this weekend.

Celta had a chance of their own down the other end barely two minutes later, with Iago Aspas just failing to meet a strike from Sofiane Boufal, which flashed across the away side's penalty box. Celta came really close to scoring the equalizer from the set-piece following the substitution through an Okay Yukuslu effort that came off the woodwork and was cleared by Sergio Ramos.

"Their challenges were at the limit of what's allowed and we suffered because of that".

Like its predecessor, the Samsung W2019 will be available only in Asia and will be available in China through China Unicorn. Besides, the phone appears to have a plastic body with a metallic finish, though details of the same remain unconfirmed.

Real Madrid are now on a four-game winning run with the likes of Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior and a few others finding their shooting boots.

"Madrid is bigger than all of us but it touches us all with its greatness". The Galicians will be a risky opponent so Courtois will have to be at his best in between the sticks.

The Frenchman was then instrumental in doubling the lead early in the second half, firing a shot which squirmed under goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez and over the line off Celta defender Gustavo Cabral. They had to resort to fouling the Madrid players for nearly the entirety of the game, which lead to quite a few injuries, as Nacho, Casemiro and Sergio Regullion were all taken off with a knock in the match.

"It's a great opportunity and it's a great club", Solari said.

Cabral's and Celta's evening went from bad to worse, as he was booked for the second time on the night at the 87th minute, leaving Celta with 10 men for the final moments of the game.
