He Celta Vigo stopped his winning streak at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, where he tied with the Getafe, in a duel in which the Madrid team went ahead on the scoreboard with a goal in the first half of the Uruguayan Damien Suarez which neutralized a few minutes later Iago Aspas from penalty.
José Bordalás modified his tactical scheme to surprise Celta, who arrived at the Coliseum on a roll after chaining four consecutive victories. To face it, the Alicante coach, instead of playing with two forwards as he usually did, went to a single point, the Turkish Enes Unal, with a line behind four and a pivot only with the entry into eleven of David Timor.
That scheme initially dislodged Celta, who after six minutes saw the Uruguayan Damián Suárez pick up a ball in front, with a pipe he left Denis Suárez and with a right hand fired a shot at the squad Right of Rubén Blanco.
That goal ended in 352 minutes the streak without conceding a goal for the Galician team, which soon after achieved the equalizer on the scoreboard. Damián Suárez committed a penalty on his compatriot Lucas Olaza and Iago Aspas, from eleven meters, scored the tie, although his shot was guessed by Rubén Yáñez, who touched the ball although he could not stop it.
This equality of the scoreboard is the one that was reflected on the grass, since neither team managed to impose its dominance over the other, although Celta had the advantage of having the Peruvian Renato Tapia in the medullary, who cut everything that he came upon him and as a recuperator he was the great asset of the Galician team.
Bordalás should not have liked what he was seeing from his team and, after 56 minutes, he radically changed his scheme to make a triple change, entering two forwards, Jaime Mata and Ángel Rodríguez, and the young midfielder John Patrick.
With them, Getafe showed another air although Celta, little by little, became more owner of the ball, always looking for Iago Aspas and Nolito, the two players who in more trouble put Azulona behind, who had to make an effort not to see each other surprised.
In the final minutes both Getafe and Celta were unable to disturb the rival goal and the game languished without clear scoring opportunities.
With the tie, Getafe has 17 points and remains in the middle of the table, while Celta de Vigo, with 20, slows down in their attempt to reach the European positions.
