A great goal Brais Mendezsymbol of the RC Celta quarry and lighthouse of the Real Sociedad this Saturday night in Balaídos, resolved a hectic match in Balaídos, where the San Sebastian team was reunited with victory four days later and the celestials saw cut off its good dynamics.

Real Sociedad boasted of its youth academy in Balaídos. Imanol Alguacil surprised with the ownership of Olsagasti and Magunazelia. He placed the first one next to Turrientes, another Zubieta product, in the creation zone; The second he hit in attack with the Nigerian Sadiq.

His team was brave to dominate a rival who was coming forward. The demand was maximum, but the blue and white response was better. Led by a sensational Brais Méndez, Real Sociedad was far superior to Celticwhich accused the disastrous game of Iago Aspas.

If their star does not come into play, Rafa Benítez’s team suffers in attack. Tapia, Dotor and Luca de Torre are not creative footballers. Neither does Miguel Rodríguez, the light blue coach’s bet on the right wing.

This unstable footballer was sold by Luis Campos two summers ago to Real Sociedad for just 14 million euros. Brais Mendezwhose previous general director Antonio Chaves refused to raise his salary, He demonstrated again tonight that that was a terrible operation.

He Galician footballer was the lighthouse of the Real society in Balaídos. His was the only goal of the match. A great goal after eleven minutes: he controlled away from the goal, cut back an opponent, armed his leg and took a spectacular long left foot shot to place the ball against the post. Guaita could do nothing. Brais did not celebrate, despite the fact that a sector of Celticism whistled at him when he established himself in the first team.

The “txuri urdin” goal hit Celta, saved shortly after by their goalkeeper. A spectacular pass from Brais Méndez was chested down by Sadiq but the Nigerian’s shot went to where Guaita was. Balaídos breathed. Celta, relying on the lungs of Renato Tapia, grew with the passing of the minutes. He even enjoyed a very clear chance, but Remiro prevented the Norwegian Larsen’s goal, in an action annulled by a doubtful offside.

Going through the locker room didn’t change anything. Celta continued to be confused, despite the fact that Benítez had already changed to the line of three centre-backs what a good result it had given him in Anoeta. Brais Méndez continued with his recital. In the 51st minute, the post prevented him from celebrating another great goal. This time with a fabulous shot from the front. The opportunity that Magunazelia missed to end the duel shortly after was also born from his boots.

The visiting dominance forced Benítez to take drastic measures. Aspas, Mingueza and Miguel Rodríguez were suddenly replaced by Douvikas, Carles Pérez and Hugo Álvarez. The entry of the Greek striker did not solve anything. Celta was barely generating, and their coach made another move. Savior Williot Swedberg and Jailson entered the field. His role was testimonial. La Real extends their idyll in Balaídos, before they meet again on Tuesday in the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey.
