LaLiga Starting XI: Real Madrid v Celta Vigo 16 March 2019

Keylor Navas during the match against Celta

In his first major decision as Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane has opted to drop goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois for this afternoon's game against Celta Vigo in favour of Keylor Navas.

Zidane won seven titles in his first spell as Real Madrid manager including an unprecedented three Champions League titles in a row.

Courtois was the biggest surprise, given he was bought by Madrid for around 40 million euros ($45 million) last summer and had established himself ahead of Navas under Santiago Solari.

It is clear Zidane is giving those who have been out of the team a chance to prove themselves and bring back the good times.

Zidane has also made a big call in goal, with Courtois dropping to the bench after a 4-1 comeback win at Real Valladolid last week and Costa Rica global Keylor Navas recalled.

Missouri lawmaker says bill requiring AR-15s makes 'point on mandates'
The bills from McDaniel, a former deputy sheriff in Pemiscot County, would offer tax credits for people purchasing firearms. Two days before introducing HB 1108, he introduced House Bill 1052 , which creates the "McDaniel Second Amendment Act".

Bale's inclusion will be the most polarising among Madrid fans, who have not been shy to voice their displeasure at his failure to replace Ronaldo's goal output in recent weeks.

Having left the club last summer, Zidane returned to Real on Monday after the side were eliminated from both the Copa del Rey and Champions League in humiliating fashion.

It's unlikely that many of this side will be starting games - even playing for Madrid at all - next season, with a squad overhaul on the cards.

But Zidane is using the end of the season to rebuild for the future as he signed Porto defender Militao for £42million this week.
