The captain of the Vigo team scored two of the three goals of the night and now has five
MADRID, Sep. 2 (.) –
Celta de Vigo added their second victory in the 2022-2023 season in LaLiga Santander by winning this Friday with authority 3-0 over Cádiz, on a night where Iago Aspas further sank the Cadiz team to the bottom of the table with no points in the locker after four consecutive losses.
There was not much history in the Vigo fiefdom in the first part. Celta became the owner of the ball and Balaídos applauded the initiative of Eduardo Coudet’s men. But Cádiz was comfortable in the first 45 minutes without rhythm and chances, which left both teams with the pending task of generating danger in attack.
With everything to decide, Coudet shook the bench and gave the opportunity to the 22-year-old Norwegian international Strand Larsen, who made his debut after arriving on the last day of the market, and the youth squad Gabri Veiga. A double changed that revitalized the locals, while Carles Pérez and Renato Tapia remained on the bench
Celta was more subdued, with Aspas disappeared and watched. But the captain appeared when he was most needed and he was again the talisman of a team that lives from his goals. The Galician shot from the edge of the box to open the scoring in the 56th minute.
Sergio González’s team did not raise their heads after the conceded goal and was knocked out by the superiority of a rival that had come to the fore. Larsen touched his first goal with a shot to the post and showed how well he was in tune with his teammates, giving an assist to Óscar Rodríguez at the hour of play that left the Cadiz team more touched.
The entrance of the pitied Lucas Pérez, who finally did not leave the Andalusian team, did not serve as a shock against the eternal rival of Deportivo de la Coruña. The people from Cadiz continued to be at the mercy of Celta who continued to push hard in search of more goals. And again Iago Aspas appeared to round off a placid night, in which he scored a brace that places him with five goals in four league games.
The people from Cadiz revived their crisis of results and the people from Vigo knew how to take advantage of their bad moment to obtain their first joy in front of their fans. A triumph that allows them to get hooked on the noblest part of the table and close to some European positions for which they want to fight this season.
