Deportivo end the weekend just six points above the relegation zone after they lost 0-1 to arch-rivals Celta in the latest Galician derby. If anything the visitors had the better of a dour first half, Lux saving a soft header from Cabral and Wass shooting wide, but the locals had the chance to take the lead when Roncaglia gifted the ball to Borges in the first minute of the second half, Sergio Alvarez saving the day in the end. Juanfran, Carles Gil and Alex Bergantiños tried their luck with long efforts, but in the end it was Iago Aspas who made the difference, the Spanish international striker turning in Beauvue’s cross to give his team three points which takes them back up to eleventh spot.
