0-1. 34. Jesuli. Volley down past keeper after Catanha headed back López cross.

Celta moved up away from the danger zone after a much needed 0-1 victory at Sevilla. Miguel Angel Lotina's side started the weekend in seventeenth place, only two points above the bottom three and with only a point from their last three games. the manager was missing the injured Mostovoi and decided to give Catanha a run out up front in place of Milosevic, and it was the Hispano-Brazilian striker who had the first effort at goal. Most of the play was in the Sevilla half as the visitors pushed forward, although the Andalucians were dangerous on the counterattack and both Darío Silva and Antoñito tested Cavallero. Reyes also went close with a free kick, but ten minutes before the break Celta struck, Catanha heading back Gustavo López's cross for Jesuli to volley the ball home. The ex Sevilla winger refusing to celebrate his goal though out of respect for his old club.

Caparrós made two changes at the break, bringing on Gallardo and also Baptista, who was making his first appearance after a long injury. The two substitutes had an immediate effect, with Baptista shooting just wide, and things swung even more in Sevilla's favour when Berizzo got his marching orders after picking up a second yellow card. But Lotina gave up any notion of attack, replacing Gustavo López and Catanha with Sergio and Giovanella, and they sat back to defend. Caparrós brought on Hornos, but the only thing the young Uruguayan striker managed to achieve was to get himself sent off in a brawl with Cavallero, the keeper himself lucky to get let off with a yellow card. It was a far cry from the Andalucians last home match when they beat Real Madrid 4-1, and they drop back into the bottom half of the table.
