RC Celta added one point against the bottom team Balaídos. After a first half without scoring chances and slightly dominated by Málaga, the second half followed with a Celta progressively taking control of the game, and deserved the win. Iago Aspas had several good chances, the best one after a pass by Maxi Gómez to the far post, where Aspas was completely clear of mark and kicked the ball out. Then Sergi Gomez hit the woodwork and 20 minutes later so did Málaga. Celta finished the match pressuring its rival and having good chances, but was not able to convert. Late awakening against the bottom team.
After National team competition, the team heads to Bilbao to fight for three points that will allow it to continue in the race for Europe League play.
