As a result, Celta Vigo got a goal at the very beginning of the second half. Vigo striker Iago Aspas opened the scoresheet as he found the net in the 56th minute with the help of Gabri Veiga.

Scoring the first goal, the home team didn’t stop pressing. They doubled their lead within 10 minutes from the first goal. This time, midfielder Oscar Rodriguez beat Cadiz’s goalkeeper to find the net. Jorgen Strand Larsen, who came off the bench in the 46th minute, assisted on that goal.

Conceding two goals in ten minutes, the visitors lost track and became a bit shaky in defense. They tried to score from the counterattack, but the result went bad for the visitors. Cadiz conceded the third goal as Iago Aspas found the net in the 75th minute to complete his second goal.
