Celta Vigo defeated Cádiz 3-0 on Friday at Municipal de Balaidos. Celta were looking to pick up points, following a 1-0 victory against Girona. Cádiz had lost their previous match against Athletic Bilbao. Celta are now in 6th place on the table and have 7 points while Cádiz sit in 20th with 0 points after 4 matches.

After an uneventful first half, The Sky Blues applied pressure in the second and were rewarded, when Iago Aspas gave them the lead in the 56th minute. The momentum was again with Celta, who then scored again courtesy of a goal from Oscar, 62 minutes in to establish a 2-0 result. They then extended the lead with a 2nd effort from Iago Aspas on the 75 minute mark to give a final score of 3-0.
