The Blancos manager has not sprung any major surprises as his side look to take a giant step towards winning the La Liga title

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has selected a strong starting XI for Wednesday's key La Liga clash against Celta Vigo.

Los Blancos are tied with Barcelona atop the table entering the match, which serves as Madrid's game in hand ahead of this weekend's final round of fixtures.

And Zidane hasn't taken any risks for the mid-week match, with right-back Danilo the only choice that could be seen as a surprise.

The full-back is selected ahead of Nacho despite the Spaniard having his yellow card against Sevilla rescinded which would have seen him suspended.

James Rodriguez misses out after he picked up a knock earlier in the week.
