A Joselu’s penalty goal in the 97th minuteAfter an innocent foul by Mingueza Reviewed by VARsealed Draw in the first game of the season in Balaidos (2-2), an even duel where RC Celta squandered their two-goal advantage against RCD Espanyol.

Four transfers that place each coach on the starting team, one new face per line. Coudet’s innovations include Marchesín, Unai Núñez, Óscar and Paciencia; Diego Martínez made his debut with Lecomte, Oliván, Vini Souza and Joselu.

No chance to score in the first half. although it lacked brilliance. Promising start for EspanyolDarder, who warned with a strong whip from outside in the first minutes, went from the pole.

Diego Martínez’s team put their defenses together well. This drawing, with several lines together, crushed Celta: little rhythm, small overflow without the depth of the sides. The first celestial approach to the opposing goal came with a very high shot from Aspas in the middle of the first half.

Espanyol sticks to his plan. He took refuge without haste, awaiting a counterattack that would surprise Marchesín. i just made once with a long run from Reubenminutes later, it ended safely, as with a bad free kick from Oliván.

With the sterile dominance of the Vigo team, the match fell asleep until a minute before the break. outstanding appearance Iago Aspas. Celta made a good move and resulted in the Óscar-Solari-Aspas triangulation. It was great: Óscar saw Solari lift control towards the middle of the pitch, the Argentine came back and Aspas, stuck in the center of Cabrera, scored with a fine touch, a soft mid-kick.

Coudet strengthened the midfield with Tapia’s presence to start the second half. Celta got the ball. He planted more. He used the ball faster. Tapia warned with a distant shot. Espanyol has suffered.

Celta confirmed their dominance in the middle of the second half with another great move crowned by Gonzalo Paciencia. The Portuguese striker appeared in midfield to catch the ball, opened the game to the left, sprinted into the penalty area and hit Javi Galán in the middle. Patience prevailed over Cabrera, as Aspas did in the first half.

that second goal Celta slowed down. But he controlled Espanyol for several minutes. Lacking in fluency, struggling to get the ball out of the back, Diego Martínez’s team barely appeared on the Galician floor until the last twenty minutes of the game. Ambarba tried with a long shot. The Catalan team was improving. And he scored from the right with a cross from Rubén, a weak gap from Aidoo and a quick closed counter attack. One last shot by Edu Exposito.

That hurt the returning Celta. Edu Expósito tried to surprise Marchesín from midfield. Time passed without visiting the deals. The sky blue team resisted. Mingueza knocked Joselu down on the field in the last minute of the reduction. It was a naive mistake. The VOR room warned the referee. Ortiz Arias reviewed the contact and gave a penalty mark. Joselu muted Balaídos with an equalizing goal.
