Betis are still in with a mathematical chance of making it in to the top four after a 1-0 victory over Celta on Sunday evening. The Andalusians had the better of the first half, with Rubén Castro and Nosa Igiebor both having strikes ruled out for borderline offsides, and Javi Varas having to save from Beñat and Castro. Iago Aspas almost caught out Adrián with a long shot before the break, but midway through the second half Castro got on the end of Chica's cross to volley the opener past the visiting keeper. The striker could have scored a second soon afterwards when through on goal, Varas pushing out his first shot and a follow up header coming back off the post, but Adrián had to keep out Oubiña a few minutes later, and the Galicians felt themselves unlucky not to have come away with a point when referee Fernando Teixeira Vitienes ruled out a late Túñez strike for a non-existent offside. The defeat though leaves Abel Resino's side three points away from safety having played a game more than their nearest rivals, and they must now be one of the favourites to go down after just one year back in the top flight.
