Nolito has warned Real Madrid that Celta Vigo “can really hurt” them ahead of Saturday’s La Liga showdown at Balaidos.
In what is being billed as a table-topping clash, with both sides still unbeaten after eight games, the attacker is convinced his side have what it takes to spring another shock, having already put four past Barcelona.
“We’ll try to play as we always do,” he told Radio Marca.
“[Madrid are a great team and the favourites, but we’ll play as equals and without fear.
“If Celta are at their best, they can really hurt Madrid.
“We’ll try to stay faithful to our philosophy. The more injuries Madrid have, the better.
“God willing, my future will be resolved in January. I’m not leaving in January. I’m happy in Vigo.”
