Excessive punishment against Real Madrid CF in a vibrant Abanca Balaídos (1-2)

RC Celta

RC Celta lost 1-2 to Real Madrid CF at Abanca Balaídos in the match corresponding to the thirtieth LaLiga matchday. The Madrid side took the lead and, despite the equalizer from the celestial team, they took the three points with another goal from eleven meters.


Evenness was the dominant tone in the first minutes of play. Denis Suarez, with a long-range shot, starred in the first big chance for the Celestes, while Benzema and Vinicius tried on the part of the Merengue team. A match that was evened after the first quarter of an hour with a goal by Benzema from the penalty spot. Eduardo Coudet’s team did not give up after the 0-1 and could have equalized with a free kick from Iago Aspas that Courtois saved.

Celta came out better than Real Madrid after the restart and, as a result, came the equalizer through Nolito after a great collective play. The joy was short-lived for the Celtic team, who saw two penalties against them, the first of them saved by Dituro, which meant the 1-2 through Benzema in the third penalty of the match.

Abanca Balaídos, in its best entrance of the season, pushed a Celta that tried, without reward, until the end. After this match, the sky blues will face RCD Espanyol next Sunday, April 10, at the RCDE Stadium at 16:15 in the thirty-first round of LaLiga.
