Camavinga nets debut goal as Real Madrid beat Celta Vigo

 

Eduardo Camavinga netted a dream debut goal to seal Real Madrid’s 5-2 La Liga comeback win against Celta Vigo on Sunday night.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side battled back to secure a vital three points and maintain their unbeaten start to the 2021/22 campaign and move up to second place in the table.

Los Blancos endured a mixed first 45 minutes on their first game back at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu since 2019 with Santi Mina and Franco Cervi cancelling out Karim Benzema’s equaliser before the break.

The hosts immediately stepped it up a gear after the restart with Benzema’s bullet header and Vinicius Junior’s assured finish turning the tie on its head before the hour mark.

However, with the tie still hanging in the balance, Ancelotti turned to his bench to bring on new signing Camavinga as a 65 minute substitute in the Spanish capital.
