RC Celta clinched a 0-0 draw away at Leganés in a match in which there were hardly any goalscoring chances. Fran Escriba’s men progressed in the match and could have taken the lead in the second half in an effort by Iago Aspas.
The first half of the game was equal. Both teams tried to get control of the ball and there were not many chances to score. The intense heat also made it difficult for the game to run smoothly.
The second half followed the same pattern. The sky blue team was able to go ahead twice on the scoreboard thanks to two good plays that Boufal and Aspas were unable to convert, whose shot deflected on the goal line by a local defender.
