A vital 2-1 win for Celta in their Monday night relegation battle with Zaragoza, the victory taking the Galicians above their opponents on the head-to-head record. The two teams came in to the game in the last two positions after the six sides above them all drew earlier this weekend, the Maños having gone fourteen games since they last took the three points, and their hosts having only clocked up one win in thirteen. The match got off to a nervous start, Pinter and Alex López testing keepers Javi Varas and Roberto with speculative shots early on. With just under half an hour on the clock Sapunaru headed the visitors in to the lead from Apoño's free kick, but Celta equalised a few minutes later, Alex López's header from Augusto Fernández's cross hitting the crossbar and dropping over the line before Roberto could get to it. Both sides had chances after the break, but it looked as if the game was heading for another draw until Bermejo got on the end of Orellana's cross in the second minute of injury time to turn a shot in off the far post. With six weeks to go the bottom six are now only separated by five points, and it looks like being a nerve-wracking end to the season for all of them.
