Celta Vigo drew 3-3 with Real Betis in their last game.

Cabral's miserable night was completed late on when he received a second yellow card in between those goals, while Brais Mendez scored a late consolation for the hosts.

Real Madrid notched a fourth straight win under interim coach Santiago Solari by winning 4-2 at Celta Vigo on Sunday to move to within four points of La Liga leaders Barcelona.

Real nearly fell behind midway through the first half, but Okay Yokuslu's header crashed back off the inside of Thibaut Courtois' right upright.

Real Madrid took the lead in the 23rd minute, however, when Benzema collected a pass from Luka Modric before finding the back of the net with an excellent finish.

Toni Kroos blazed over an open goal from Benzema's pull back 10 minutes before the interval, while Courtois got down well to deny Mendez on the stroke of half-time.

The Frenchman was then instrumental in doubling the lead early in the second half, firing a shot which squirmed under goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez and over the line off Celta defender Gustavo Cabral.

The action was not finished, however, with Celta notching their second in the fourth minute of added time when Mendez's strike deflected past Courtois.

As for former Army player and current Duke legend Mike Krzyzewski , this game surely included some conflicted emotions. For the game, he finished with 16 rebounds, six blocks and four assists to go along with his game-high points total.

Mendez added a second for Celta with a deflected strike from the edge of the area with nearly the last kick of the game, but it did little to take the shine off a fine night for Solari and his side.

What does it mean?

Casemiro, who also started in the thumping victory in the Czech Republic, expressed similar positive sentiments when asked about the issue post-match: "People can talk about whether or not another coach is going to come in, but we're approaching our task with a lot of respect for Solari as head coach of Madrid".

The Welshman was expected to thrive following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, but his woes in front of goal continued against Celta. Real Madrid have steadied the ship with Santiago Solari replacing Julen Lopetegui.

- Real Madrid's Gareth Bale has failed to score in his last eight LaLiga games, his longest run without scoring in the competition.

- No other player from the top five European leagus has scored more penalties than Sergio Ramos this season in all competitions (level with Lille's Nicolas Pepe).

- Madrid under Solari have conceded their first goal in all competitions, after 331 minutes of football.
