Eduardo Coudet’s hand and Iago Aspas’ glorious moment have changed the face of the resurrected sky-blue squad, chaining their third consecutive victory against Cádiz based on a flawless first half.
The 4-0 on the scoreboard at halftime represented an unrecognizable Cádiz’s overwhelming local dominance over its victory against Barça and sunk by the strike of Celta, which did not forgive any of the four occasions it had in the first weather.
Aspas, full from the start of the clash, was the undisputed maker of the victory, signing a great assist for Nolito to score 1-0. Behind a wall, Moaña’s crack detected his partner’s unchecking as if he had eyes on the back of his neck and offered him the leather on the turn so that the former Barcelona fired Ledesma (6 ‘).
For the Cádiz goalkeeper, whose clumsiness buried the hopes of his team, who replied with dignity to the initial goal and had the equalizer on a few occasions, including Negredo’s shot, it was the beginning of the nightmare. Santi Mina with Ledesma and the goalkeeper summoned another masterful pass from Aspas into space before the half-hour of the game, leaving late and badly, overwhelmed the forward by committing a penalty that transformed the 10th (31 ‘).
The action knocked Mina out, who after hurting her shoulder, left the field in tears. Beltrán reached his place and his arrival was the spitting picture of the Celtic who had it all. In one of his first interventions, after a successful maneuver by Aspas inside the area (43 ‘), the midfielder made it 3-0 from outside the area.
With no time for Cádiz to assimilate the third blow, Brais Méndez made a good cross from Denis Suárez at the edge to take advantage of another bad start by Ledesma, who left the celestial squad groggy (46 ‘) instead of clearing the ball.
With all agreed, the restart just served to continue to delight Iago Aspas, who was able to extend the lead on the scoreboard with the showing. Up to three times the VAR frustrated the sky blue picture. First, after a pass from Aspas, he annulled a Moaña goal and later another from Olaza, both for offside. Baeza scored 5-0 in the discount but was also invalidated owing to an illegitimate position.
The Celta, powerful and very strong in the regions, continue to develop the plan of Coudet and star Aspas. The ’10’ is all in this band, common thread, and spearhead, spiritual mentor, lifeline, and now a Celtic who continues to dream of greater heights is catapulting.
