Sky blue victory at the Villamarín (3-4)

RC Celta

Frenzied match between Real Betis and RC Celta in Heliópolis where soccer and goals reigned, giving to the Vigo team the second victory in a row (3-4).

The first half started in an unbeatable way for Real Betis, who took the lead through a strike by Strand Larsen in the sixth minute of the game. Then, the Betis equalized with a shot from a corner kick by Juanmi, and doubled their advantage in the 20th minute with a shot by Canales. When it seemed that the match was going to end with a sky blue disadvantage at halftime, a brilliant Luca de la Torre and a Gabri Veiga’s lob put the scoreboard level.

Gabri Veiga’s sixth goal in the league championship would mean the final 2-3 on the scoreboard, but it was not the last of the sky blue goals of the night. Aidoo would score the fourth with a powerful shot, and Fekir would cut the gap with a penalty with minutes to go.

This victory leaves RC Celta with three more points in the locker and the promotion to 11th position. The next LaLiga matchday will be this coming weekend against Atlético de Madrid at Abanca Balaídos.
