    • 59'
      Rico gets a yellow card for his part in the penalty decision, with the Spaniard racing off his line and sliding recklessly into a challenge! Though he didn't make contact with the ball nor the man, the manner in which he tackled was asking for trouble.

    • 63'

    • 65'
      Sevilla try and affect the momentum of the contest with some lengthy possession. Escudero scampers down the left and offers some width, but Diaz tracks back to intervene. The pitch is getting terribly tough to play on, with puddles springing up all over the field.

    • 69'
      Banega fires over the bar from the edge of the box, before Celta respond with a strike of their own! Orellana drives positively through the heart of the visiting defence, but can only place a swerving effort just inches wide of the left-hand post! Sergio Rico has been a very busy man in this second
    • 71'

    • 76'

    • 84'
      Easy save for Rico! Aspas takes aim from 25 yards out, but the former Sevilla striker can only tickle the palms of the opposition goalkeeper! It would have taken something special to beat the Spain international from that distance, especially in these blustery conditions.
    • 86'
      We're into the final five minutes at Balaidos, with Celta Vigo's spirited fightback looking to be futile in the end. The hosts are still trying to force the issue and keep the tempo high, but Orellana and company are set to fall a little short.
    • 87'
      GOOOOOOOOOOAL! KONOPLYANKA MAKES IT 2-2! The Ukraine international is picked out deep in the Celta penalty area, with it simple for the ex-Dnipro winger to thump home a close-range finish! Vitolo did brilliantly in the build up.
