The Betis forward beat defender Gustavo Cabral before scoring in the 81st minute. The hosts nearly equalized in injury time, but Betis goalkeeper Adrian San Miguel saved from Andres Tunez and Mario Bermejo hit the post a minute later.

Celta striker Iago Aspas had wasted chances earlier, shooting wide in the 40th after a solo run and again in the 67th.

The win puts Betis in fifth place with 28 points while Celta is 15th on 15 points.
