If you read Jose’s writing, you would never think that he is anything but professional. However, he is the joker of our team.

Celta Vigo snatched all three points from Getafe in a 1-0 victory on Wednesday, at the Estadio Municipal de Balaidos. Celta were looking to continue their run after winning their previous two matches in the competition. The most recent was against the Villarreal away (4-2), the other to Levante at home (2-0). Getafe were beaten 1-0 in the previous match against Eibar. As it stands, Celta are in 8th place, with 50 points from 36 matches, while Getafe sit in 16th, with 34 points from 36.

It was an impressive opening from Celta, thanks to Nolito finding the net at the 24 minute mark to see out the first half 1-0. Both teams unable to deliver anything further, the score remained at 1-0 at full time.

For Celta, Augusto Solari, Jordan William Holsgrove and Hugo Mallo, came on for Nolito, Brais Mendez and Santi Mina. Getafe replaced Takefusa Kubo and Jaime Mata with Juan Antonio Iglesias Sanchez and Enes Ünal.

There were bookings for Denis Suarez from Celta, and Damian Suarez, Chema and Mathias Olivera, for Getafe.

Celta will next travel to Barcelona, while Getafe will face Levante at home.
