Two goals from Iago Aspas and one each from Nolito and Guidetti sealed the win for Celta Vigo on Wednesday night. Nolito opened the scoring in the 26th minute of the game, he later went on to set up two goals for Liverpool reject Iago Aspas. Although , Neymar was able to pull one back for Barcelona from a tight spot but Celta Vigo wasn’t going to tolerate any comebacks from them and they passed the message across by scoring one more to make it 4-1, this time Guidetti was the goal scorer. It is true that Celta started the game in a good form but the first real threat came from Messi when he a released a shot and forced a brilliant save from Sergio Alvarez.
Lionel Messi had a good chance to get a goal for his team early in the second half only for his effort to hit the wood work. Following the victory Celta have now taken 13 points from five La Liga games and are now top of the table on equal points with Real Madrid. This loss happens to be the first for Barcelona this season, their worse result before this was in the midweek when Alessandro Florenzi scored a stunning goal to restore parity between the two sides. Barcelona would be hoping to get back to scoring ways when they meet Las Palmas this weekend but this lose would make one question the effectiveness of their front three that was dubbed as the best in Europe last season.
