Celta Vigo’s 2-0 win over Levante on Tuesday, was hard fought at the Ciutat de Valencia. Levante wanted to continue adding points following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Elche in their previous game. Celta lost 2-1 in the last match they played against Cádiz. As things stand, both teams are on 4 points and occupy 15th and 16th places respectively after 6 matches.

After an un-eventful first half, Celta continued to apply pressure in the second and were rewarded, with Iago Aspas giving The Sky Blues the lead at the 66 minute mark. They then scored again, increasing their advantage thanks to a goal from Brais Mendez just before the final whistle to make it 2-0.

For Levante, Jorge De Frutos Sebastian, Gonzalo Melero, Dani Gomez, Nikola Vukcevic and Alejandro Cantero, came on for Rober Pier, Pablo Martinez, Nemanja Radoja, Pepelu and Jorge Miramon. Celta replaced Nolito, Denis Suarez, Carlos Dominguez and Okay Yokuslu with Renato Tapia, Franco Cervi, Iago Aspas and Brais Mendez.

There were bookings for Roger Marti, Jorge Miramon and Jorge De Frutos Sebastian from Levante. For Celta, Renato Tapia and Iago Aspas saw yellow.

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