Celta closed up on the Champions League spots after a 0-2 win against neighbours Deportivo, and they are now only two points behind Osasuna pending their match on Sunday. The locals went close early on, with Víctor hitting the post from a free kick and Duscher firing a long shot just over the bar, but with just over half an hour gone Baiano played on a corner and Silva forced the ball in to the net seemingly with his upper arm.
Depor were left with ten men when Coloccini was sent off for a second bookable offence a quarter of an hour from the end, and substitute Jesús Perera took advantage to run on and fire a low shot through the hands of Molina in the dying minutes to give his side their first win in the Riazor stadium in twelve years. The defeat was a serious blow for the home side's hopes of returning to Europe next season.
