Celta Vigo smashed Alavès, who is currently last in the standings. The Basques had to take points but it is not this Sunday that it happened.
In the first half, the difference was made as Celta netted three goals in the opening 20 minutes. Nolito (8 ‘), Aspas (14’), and Santi Mina (20 ‘) already practically ensured the victory of their teams. Alavès could only score one goal via Florian Lejeune (87 ‘, 1-3) and in the second half, Murillo was sent off for two yellow cards but even outnumbered.
Celta is far from European places, Alavès will remain in the last position, even if the gaps are tight at the bottom of the table and nothing is lost yet.
