The match had a thrilling start with two very early goals. First, it was Celta the one that went ahead, and Fernando Torres tied minutes later with a genius shot. A bicycle kick with his back to the goal that surprised Sergio. Our team tried to score the second goal with a fast game and in a breakaway from Carrasco, he was knocked down inside the box. The penalty kick was shot by Torres but he hit the crossbar. With the 1-1 tie we went to the half-time.
After the half-time, the team kept pushing to score without luck. But Celta did score their second goal at the end of the match. Guidetti scored the 1-2 and the attacks intensified. Carrasco could have tied but Sergio saved for Celta. It was the prelude of the tie because the Belgian connected a hard shot against which the rival keeper could do nothing. But there was time enough to score a goal and a play carried out by Correa with a cross to Gameiro and an assist that Griezmann scored to turn the match while the Calderón went wild. Even, Gameiro crashed a shot on the woodwork in the injury time. Great win to continue in the top positions to qualify for the Champions.
