Celta de Vigo recovered from last weeks hammering by Real Madrid to defeat today 1 - 0 Real Sociedad. However, Celta goalkeeper Sergio was one of the best players of the match as he made numerous saves to secure the victory for his team. The only goal & winner came from Aspas in the 15th min with a wonderful chip.
Atletico de Madrid comfortably defeated Deportivo A Coruña 3 - 0. Goals from inform midfielder Saul in the 18th min, followed by Frenchman Griezmann in the 60th min & Argentinian Correa in the 83rd min.
The victory keeps Atletico solidly on the Liga table in 2º place. Next Tuesday they have the important Champions League clash at home against PSV Einhoven. Torres & Augusto were rested tonight perhaps with this in mind.
