This win moves Real Madrid up to second in the table, ahead of Barcelona who play tomorrow and Zidane's side face Eibar next time out. Meanwhile Celta drop down to 11th and they travel to Alaves after the international break.
Real Madrid clinch all three points against Celta Vigo, with a 3-1 win, after a brace from Benzema and a late stoppage time header from Asensio.
Mina pulled one back for Celta just before the break, but they couldn't find an equaliser in the second period, with Aspas striking the post from a free-kick and that's as close as they came. The visitors then caught them out on the counter late on and Asensio made sure of the victory.
