‘Now is a good time to play Madrid’

Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas has claimed that this weekend is a great time to play Real Madrid.

Los Blancos are coming off the back of two Clasicos with Barcelona and a Champions League tie with Manchester United.

But the 25-year-old has insisted that Sunday is an ideal time to play the Santiago Bernabeu side, whilst also commenting on his future at the Celestes.

“For us this is a good week to play Madrid,” he told AS. “After having two Clasicos and the European game, I think that can benefit us.

“We have not done too well against the big teams recently, but hopefully that can change.

“We will try to be serious and focus fully on the game. We can take heart from the winning the cup against Real Madrid earlier in the season.

“I want to save Celta from relegation, and then we'll see where I'll be playing [next season].”
