Celta and Villarreal drew 0-0 on Sunday evening, a result which keeps the visitors in fourth place pending the Monday night game, and leaves their hosts four spots below them in the table. It was one way traffic for most of the game though, Yoel the hero of the day with a string of saves throughout the ninety minutes. The local keeper made early stops from Giovani and Jonathan Pereira, and Pereira fired a couple of efforts wide later in the first half. Toni responded with a wide free kick which Asenjo pushed round the post, and young striker Santi Mina just failed to get on the end of dangerous cross from Rafinha. But Giovani and Pereira both had strikes ruled out for borderline offsides soon after the restart, and Yoel was in action again to keep out Aquino, Pina and Hernán Pérez later on.
