Ronaldo and Benzema missing as Celta Vigo plot Real Madrid shock

The ESPN FC crew discuss James Rodriguez's Real Madrid future.

Under Madrid's classic scorching heat of late August, Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid will host Celta Vigo in their Bernabeu opener this Saturday and they'll face one of the most entertaining sides in La Liga last season. The squad, managed by Argentinean coach Hector Berizzo, finished in sixth place, but that hardly tells the story of a year full of great performances and easy-on-the-eye football.

The Vigueses started with five wins -- including a 4-1 thrashing of Barcelona -- and three draws, and...

Messi, Turan click at Barcelona; returnees, Bale star for Real Madrid

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno explains why he believes Lionel Messi will improve on last season.

Many of the fans who drooled over yet another man-of-the-match performance from Lionel Messi in Barcelona's 6-2 win versus Real Betis at the Camp Nou on Saturday are called socios -- socis in Catalan.
