Celta came into the game in tenth, level with Real Betis, a point ahead of Valencia and a point behind Athletic Club. They’re now in seventh, a point behind Sevilla in sixth and ahead of Granada in eighth.

Argentine coach Eduardo Coudet has worked wonders since taking charge and looks to be the man to liberate a talented but underperforming squad. The defeat leaves Alaves in 16th, just a point off Getafe and the relegation zone.
