Celta Vigo managed to win a point against Barcelona after converting a set-piece in the 88th minute. As Iago Aspas, the scorer, explained after the match, the Celts worked on the move during preparation for the clash,
"We had already seen it in some videos with the goalkeeping coaches, with Gael and with Nando. I have to thank them. You can see the wall jumping. I saw the gap between the wall and the first post, where Antoine Griezmann was, and I put it there."
The 32-year-old is proud of his team, although he thinks they deserved more from the match: "It is a point against Barcelona at home, we would all have signed for that before the match. However, considering how we played in the last minutes, a draw is not enough."
"We are fighting to avoid relegation and the draw with Barca leaves us frustrated. We had a great second half. In the first part, we had three clear occasions, but we were not comfortable on the pitch.
"After the break, we pressed much more, we went much higher. We made a mistake during Barcelona's second goal when we were better."
