League rules mandate that an interim coach can not stay longer than a fortnight in the post, meaning Madrid's hierarchy must either confirm Solari as their permanent coach on Monday or look elsewhere for a new full-time boss.

With victories over Melilla in the Copa del Rey, Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League, and Real Valladolid and Celta Vigo in La Liga, Solari has enjoyed the best start of any manager in the club's history.

After Julen Lopetegui was sacked following an embarrassing 5-1 defeat to Barcelona in the clásico, Solari was made interim boss and has taken Madrid on a run of four consecutive wins, the latest of which came on Sunday night at Balaídos away to Celta Vigo.

Real Madrid travel to the Galician city of Vigo, to take on Celta Vigo at the Balaidos Stadium on Sunday evening in a fixture corresponding the twelfth match day of La Liga Santander.

"The important thing is to do what is necessary for the good of the team, everything else doesn't matter", Solari said.

After the break Benzema's shot hit the post and went in off defender Gustavo Cabral to put Real 2-0 up but Celta's Hugo Mallo scored with a smart volley.

Casemiro went off in the first 20 minutes and Gareth Bale and Alvaro Odriozla were also limping at the end after being clattered. While many players and even critics believed that the Spaniard needed more time at the helm, interim manager Santiago Solari has brought hope back into the side.

"Casemiro had to come off, Gareth made a huge effort because the kick he received was causing him problems".

Real Madrid director Emilio Butragueno praised Santiago Solari, saying the club were "very happy" with the caretaker coach.

"[Solari] arrived in a very particular moment and has achieved very good results", Butragueno said.

"It was a very complicated game and we also had setbacks with injuries, [but] we had personality and character".

"The line-up that finished the game is a clear example that we have a competitive squad, as the team has the personality to aspire to everything".

Celta coach Antonio Mohamed questioned the penalty that led to Ramos' goal in the 83rd minute.

"His future? We are happy".
