On the back of a great Sergio Canales, who added another double and has scored five goals in three league games since returning from injury, Betis looks to the noble positions of the table with his second victory in a row, four if the two in the Cup are included. Celta, who took the lead, once again showed a glass jaw that is lethal when it does not have on the field a completely essential footballer for the celestial , Iago Aspas. 16 losses and only one win in the last 21 games without Moaña’s.

It is not that Betis defends much better, disarmed at the beginning by the electricity of the great novelty of the eleven of Coudet, Emre Mor. Up to three clear occasions were born in Turk’s boots, including a ball to the post by Santi Mina, before the Vigo striker himself finished a corner (0-1, 15 ‘) launched from the weakest area of ​​Betis, the left. In that band Aitor Ruibal would be injured minutes later.

Accustomed to doing hara-kiri, Celta leaned back and began to play without much sense for Betis to catch the ball and start stepping on the area regularly. In one of those Lainez combined with Fekir, Fekir with Canales and the Cantabrian, with which he is supposed to be the least good leg (the right), he sent it to the net (1-1).

The tie did not change the decoration too much. Betis arrived without depth but with ease and a robbery of Denis Suárez, an image that has become a custom in Balaídos, ended upn another loan from Fekir to Canales, which he redefined to put his team ahead just before half-time (2-1, 44 ‘).

The madness of the first half subsided in the second. Celta did not want to take risks and Betis was calm with victory. Just in case, questioned since last season, Joel had returned to the Betis goal after Bravo’s umpteenth injury and claimed responsibility to dissolve the little but clear danger of Celta created in the second half, especially aborting a hand in hand with Baeza.
