But a serious defensive error condemned him to play from minute 16 with the scoreboard against. The goal of the Balearic Islands was the work of Martínez, who came by surprise and free of markings to connect an unstoppable front for goalkeeper Matías Mituro.

With Iago Aspas on the bench as a resource to use if necessary, Celta initially failed in their attempt to make their quality prevail. He did not create great danger and never hit the last pass in the first 45 minutes against an opponent who closed the spaces perfectly.

The coach of the Vigo team, Eduardo “Chacho” Caudet decided to admit Santi Mina, Brais Méndez, Fran Beltrán and Javi Galán at the beginning of the second half.

The initiative came from the visitors in the first section of the resumption and Brais Méndez tied the game just at the time when Iago Aspas, the star of the Celtic team, who entered shortly after, was warming up.

With all the heavy artillery on the lawn, Celta looked for the final blow against an opponent that was losing more and more ground, but who perfectly took advantage of another defensive error to score 2-1, again, after a splendid header from Manel Martínez.

“Chacho” Coudet’s team launched into a total offensive in the final stretch. He locked up the Blue and Whites in his area, exhausted all his offensive resources to force extra time, but had to give in to a surprising Atlético Baleares, turned into an unexpected ‘giant killer’ of the Copa del Rey.
