NUFC Worries Over Real Madrid Defeat

NUFC Worries Over Real Madrid Defeat

Newcastle manager Glenn Roeder has warned his players they face a massive test tonight when they try and book their place in the knockout stages of the UEFA Cup.

The Magpies know a draw will do the job, but they face Spanish side Celta Vigo who have beaten Real Madrid and Deportivo La Coruna away from home in the Primera Liga this season.

Roeder: 'It will be the toughest game.

'We have put ourselves in a good position by winning the first two games.

'In my opinion, it was a surprise Celta Vigo drew their first game. They are a very dangerous side, especially when they play away from home.

'I watched them very carefully at Real Madrid and I watched them again on Sunday at Deportivo, where they had a fantastic derby win.

'They are an exceptionally good counter-attacking team.'
