Iago Aspas scored a brilliant chip to give Celta Vigo a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad to boost the Galicians hopes of qualifying for the Europa League.

The former Liverpool striker controlled a pass from Nolito with his left foot in the area and then lofted the ball over the reach of Geronimo Rulli with the same foot to put the hosts in charge after 16 minutes.

The 28-year-old also scored a chip last week at the Bernabeu, the one positive of a forgettable afternoon for Celta as they were thrashed 6-1 by Real Madrid.

And he nearly netted another fine individual goal in the second half, but moments later was forced off the pitch with a suspected muscle injury.

Sociedad coach Eusebio Sacristan raised eyebrows by naming Carlos Vela in the squad, despite the Mexican being excluded from training in midweek for missing an earlier session to go to a concert.

Vela made an appearance in the second half and nearly grabbed an equaliser, hitting the side-netting.

His fellow attacker Jonathan de Jesus had two further chances to get the hosts back in the game, but missed the target on both occasions, leaving Sociedad 10 points behind Celta in the table.
