OverviewThis fixture dates back to the 1939/40 La Liga season, after Celta Vigo had earned promotion to the Spanish top flight. They were beaten by Real Madrid on both occasions during that campaign though, with Los Blancos claiming 2-1 and 3-2 victories. That set the tone for this rivalry, as the Castilians have dominated the head-to-head overall.
One name that will be familiar to both sets of fans is Pahiño. The striker was prolific for Célticos and netted 87 goals in 126 games between 1943 and 1948. He then took the next step in his career by moving to Real Madrid, where he added a further 124 strikes in 143 appearances.
