The match that would serve to end the season at the Vicente Calderón was a party in the stands. From the kick-off, the names of the players were echoed as a tribute by a stadium devoted and grateful for the great season and to inject new energy to players for the Champions League final in Milan. The team controlled the first half, Godín could have scored but met the woodwork and Celta only had one occasion that was saved by Oblak.
However, the team decided to game in two minutes. Two genius plays by Torres: the first one ended in goal and the second crashed the crossbar and Griezmann took advantage and headed another goal. This decided the match and the fans kept enjoying the show. The great shape of Fernando Torres could be seen, with unbelievable dribbles and spectacular finishes. This was the best way to prepare the final in Milan, competing against a great team. In addition, in the final stages of the match, Tiago returned to the playing field after the injury suffered in November. Good match from a team that took away a good dose of morale and also the affection of its fans.
