Friday night was very successful for Celta Vigo. After a few match-week, the team could finally afford an away win. It was against Athletic Bilbao and Iago Aspas scored in another La Liga race.


Pre-match preparations

Before the match, Celta Vigo was very close to a relegation zone. Team could not get more than 10 points in 10 matches. It was the 11th round for Celta and Athletic Bilbao. The coach of Athletic Bilbao was very positive before the match. During the press-conference, Garitano noted that he wanted three points against Celta Vigo. In theory, Athletic Bilbao could go above in the La Liga table and compete against Barca and Real Madrid. Unfortunately to Athletic Bilbao fans, the team could not even score a goal against Celta Vigo.

Garitano started the match with one main striker. Villalibre was playing as a main striker and he was getting help from the wings. Inaki Williams was playing from the right wing. At the other hand, Berenguer was helping Villalibre from the left wing. 

In the opposite team, the Argentinian coach could play with the perfect line-up. Coudet played with two main strikers ahead. Santi Mina and Iago Aspas were playing in the penalty area of Athletic BIlbao. Especially in the second half, their performance was excellent and they could score goals. 

Two goals in second half

Both teams played lightly in the first half. Everything changed in the second half when Celta Vigo pressed high and started attacking sharply. After the pass from Santi Mina, defender Celta opened the score-line. Mallo scored beautiful goals and gave a lead to Celta Vigo. In just a few minutes Iago Aspas found it easy to score a goal. After a mistake from Simon (Goalkeeper of Bilbao) Celta quickly shifted into the attacking line and Iago scored an easy goal. It was a first away win for Celta Vigo this season.
