A goal from Nolito in the first half and the saves by Iván Villar in the second keep Celta de Vigo in the fight for European placesAfter defeating Getafe, they will have to continue to suffer to ensure their permanence in LaLiga.
The Madrid team was superior, but again their lack of success condemned them. The celestial punch was what made the difference, because Coudet’s men scored in their only clear approach to the crash, exceeding the equator of the first half, after a great triangulation between Aspas, Brais and Denis that Nolito finished at the far post.
After that goal, Celta made a remarkable defensive exercise to preserve their victory, the fourth in a row. Even so, Getafe had chances to equalize the duel. He was deprived by a spectacular Iván Villar, decisive against Ángel before the break and at the start of the second act.
The last half hour was a blue monologue. Getafe turned upside down, and Chema tested Villar in the 76th minute with a powerful shot to which the Galician goalkeeper responded with another fabulous stretch. The Madrid team continued to insist, but they did not get an award they deserved.
