La Real puts an end to the drought of victories against Celta

La Real puts an end to the drought of victories.

La Real puts an end to the drought of victories.

The Real Sociedad, after 5 days without winning, met again this Thursday with a hard-fought victory against a Celtic that could not hold the advantage that gave him the goal of Hugo Mallo and was traced back before the break (2-1).

The party did justice to the commitment to attacking football that both run. He started with emotion in an entry by Aritz that seemed to leave his team with one less, until after the VAR review Gil Manzano lowered it to a yellow card.

Celta, who spent a long time in the Real field, took the lead in the 23rd minute, in a corner kick in which the Blue and White defense relaxed and Mallo headed into the net.

It was the turn of the Real to go against the trailer, something dangerous for a team that is just in the last days, but he did not have to suffer much because 2 minutes after the goal of the celestial ones came the goal of Portu, with an assist from a brilliant Carlos Fernández and an excellent definition of the Murcian.

The meeting was unleashed, the Real was able to make a profit with a wrong penalty by Isak and a goal in the subsequent shot by Carlos Fernández, who had invaded the area before time so it was annulled.

The San Sebastian team did not get it the first time, but they did in the second chance they had from the maximum penalty at the end of the first half, when they sanctioned a foul by Araujo on Le Normand. Januzaj would not miss this opportunity.

The second half passed through similar paths, neither Real nor Celta like to lock themselves in their area and the occasions prowled both goals. The clearest for the Gipuzkoans came when Portu finished off the post and for the Vigo players when Santi Mina put Remiro to the test, the key to holding the score in favor of his team.

Celta, waiting for Aspas to appear, tried but the realistic defense endured without much suffering and the departure of Nolito, also gray, would finish paving the way to the fifth place that the Basques have recovered.
