Two penalties helped Real Madrid to a healthy 3-0 win Thursday in the first leg of their Copa Del Rey tie with second tier Numancia, while Barcelona were held to a 1-1 draw as the La Liga giants rested their stars against Celta Vigo.

Real travelled to Vigo without Dani Carvajal, striker Karim Benzema and captain Sergio Ramos while Celta, who knocked Real out of the King's Cup last season, were emboldened after drawing 1-1 with Barca in the Cup on Thursday.

Los Blancos prepare to travel to northern Spain to visit Celta Vigo on Sunday as they seek to bounce back from a disappointing first half to the season that has left them lingering in fourth place.

Gareth Bale scored twice to cancel out Daniel Wass' opener and give Madrid the lead before half-time.

Whatever Barca's result, Real Madrid go into their game in Vigo knowing nothing other than a win is any good for their title ambitions, but Zinedine Zidane's side also need to improve their football as well as their results.

This is still the fourth-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history and the 11th-largest jackpot in US lottery history. The Powerball jackpot is estimated at $570 million going into Saturday night's drawing.

But it was not good enough for Madrid as Celta equalised in the 82nd minute via Maxi Gomez after Iago Aspas had his penalty saved 10 minutes earlier.

"I don't care [about the winter market], I've only been a coach for two years, but I don't see how signing a player in it can be inconvenient", MARCA quote him as saying. "Having said that, like always I'm more interested in what we are going to do tomorrow", the Frenchman added.

'They're key players and seeing that they're ready for these next games makes me happy'.

"We'll try to work hard and fight so we can win our next game but we don't like this situation at all, it's difficult because the more games you draw or lose the more pressure you are under".

"We have to stop making these errors and be more consistent".
