Despite missing suspended star Jude Bellingham, Real Madrid saw contributions from Brazilian ace Vinicius Junior and the rising talent Guler, delighting fans at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Celta Vigo's Vicente Guaita and Carlos Dominguez inadvertently added to their team's woes by scoring own goals, contributing to Real Madrid's sizable win.

Guler, a recent acquisition from Fenerbahce, made his mark by bypassing the Celta goalkeeper to net Madrid's fourth, solidifying the victory.

Real Madrid's coach, Carlo Ancelotti, lauded Guler's performance, noting his brief but impactful three-minute play. "He showcased his immense talent with that move. He has grown significantly recently, working with greater intensity and demonstrating his skills," Ancelotti observed.

Expressing his excitement, Guler shared, "Scoring my first goal for Real Madrid in such an electrifying atmosphere was incredible. I'm grateful for the support and am eager to contribute more, with hard work being my pathway."

Real Madrid, leading La Liga with 69 points from 28 matches, now sits seven points ahead of Girona, this season's dark horse. Barcelona trails in third place with 61 points.

With Girona and Barcelona securing wins earlier in the weekend, Real Madrid faced pressure to perform against Celta Vigo, which is flirting with relegation.

The 2023-24 La Liga season is set to conclude in 10 weeks, with Real Madrid positioning themselves as formidable contenders for the title.
