Celta’s season is not going very well, but they played much better against Elche tonight than usual and celebrated with a 3-1 result. In the first half, Elche parried and was nice, particularly in the defensive portion, and they resisted until the end of the first half when Santi Mina scored 1-0 in the 45th minute. This made the job much easier for the Galician Sky Blues, who lost after that goal and stated that they are still of higher quality than Elche at the moment.
In the second minute of overtime, with another goal in the first half, Celta had really strong resources ahead of the second half. The 2-0 scorer was Brais Mendez.
When the lead was reduced to 2-1 by Emiliano Manuel Rigoni in the 50th minute, the guests could have hoped they could save anything, but they didn’t have the strength to do it tonight.
In the 68th minute, the story came to an end when Santi Mina set the final 3-1 with his second goal and gave three points worth of his side.
