Getafe holds Celta Vigo 0-0 in Spanish league
MADRID (AP) Getafe held Celta Vigo to a 0-0 draw in the Spanish league on Friday.
Celta began with fast-passing charges forward that forced Getafe goalkeeper Vicente Guaita to save Iago Aspas’ close-range shot in the 10th minute. Aspas beat Getafe’s offside trap a minute later but his shot bounced off the near post.
Argentina defender Santiago Vergini earned a yellow card in the 43rd when he obstructed Aspas’ forward pass with his hand, stopping a move which would have left the Celta forward alone facing Guaita.
Celta forward Manuel ”Nolito” Agudo was unable to improve on his league-leading eight-goal tally when Guaita saved two good shots in the 65th.
Getafe broke forward on the counterattack in the 71st but Stefan Scepovic’s header bounced off the top off the crossbar.
