Celta Vigo vs. Real Madrid result, score

Casemiro is gone, but Real Madrid remains the same. The defending La Liga champions were ruthless in Vigo, destroying the locals 4-1 for their second straight road win to begin the new league season.

Luka Modric scored a highlight-reel goal just before halftime on a shot from outside the box that found the top right corner after the two teams exchanged penalty kicks for nearly identical hand balls

The goal gave the champions a 2-1 lead, and they never looked back.

In the second half, Vinicius Jr. and Fede Valverde scored in transition to round out the scoring

 And Real Madrid could've added another goal had Karim Benzema not given a penalty kick to teammate Eden Hazard, whose attempt was saved by Celta's goalkeeper.

Following Casemiro's move to Manchester United, manager Carlo Ancelotti gave the Brazilian's central midfield slot to recent $88 million signing Aurelien Tchouameni, and the team didn't miss a beat.

Real Madrid will look to extend its unbeaten streak next Sunday, August 28, when it travels to Espanyol for the third time in a row.
