RC Celta lost this Sunday in ABANCA Balaídos (0-1) after a late goal by Jesé. Fran Escriba’s team had chances during the whole match but did not manage to break the visitors’ goal.
The first half was marked by evenness. Real Betis took possession of the ball and RC Celta remained well placed on the pitch. The Vigo team increased its pressure with the passing of the minutes and arrived at half-time with good sensations.
The Andalusians came out better in the second half and enjoyed two chances of danger thanks to two finishes from Tello. The substitutions activated the sky blue set, which also had the chance to open the scoreboard. Finally Jesé put Real Betis ahead in the final stretch after taking advantage of a deflection by Rubén.
