A win full of faith, hustle and ‘afouteza’. A good Celta came back in a match in which Las Palmas got ahead on the scoreboard after halftime. Celta turned the scoreboard around with authority to get a very important win and stay in the battle for Euro tournament position.
First Jonny took advantage of a cleared ball after a shot by home-grown player Brais Mendez to draw the match. Vey close to full time, Aspas made an amazing move that Tucu finished off by controlling the ball of his chest and shooting to the corner of the goalmouth. Celta still has faith.
