Joseph Aidoo Scores Match Winner against Elche : When the nerves were getting tighter and the run of another day without winning flew over Balaídos, Joseph Aidoo delivered the match winner with a magnificent header to achieve Celta’s virtual permanence in the First Division of Spain.
That was a crucial goal from the Black Stars defender.
Celta started the game with more intesity than Elche. Carvalhal’s team came out looking forward, with good chances to get ahead soon, especially those that Hugo Mallo and Tapia had that Badía avoided.
However, Elche little by little began to gain ground on the Sky Blues and neutralized the initial superiority of the locals. Despite this, Celta was not able to go ahead at half-time, but Aspas ran into Badía.
Going through the changing rooms changed the dynamics little, with both pressing.
The VAR had to act, warning Díaz de Mera Escuderos of a possible penalty from Clerc on Carles Pérez.
They called him to consult, he went to see it on television but, although it is strange, he maintained his decision not to whistle for the penalty. He showed personality.
In the end the celestial goal came in the 90th minute and it was the Ghanaian who scored.
It was what Celta needed in the last minutes. Cervi got a perfect ball and Aidoo came in like a plane to give three points to his team.
Celta are now 12th on the La Liga standings on 39 points after 31 games and this goal by Aidoo is going to be among the most memorable ones of the season for Celta Vigo.
