Celta Vigo climbed away from the La Liga relegation zone courtesy of a 1-0 win at Real Zaragoza on Monday.

Celta had to wait until the 83rd minute of the match at Estadio de la Romareda to bag all three points, Iago Aspas’ goal securing a first away victory of the season for the promoted club.

Zaragoza made a fast start, striker Helder Postiga testing Celta goalkeeper Javi Varas from distance inside the first minute.

Postiga was restored to the starting line-up after being dropped for the trip to Barcelona last week.

But he failed to threaten again in the opening exchanges, as Celta began to dominate.

Gustavo Cabral, Borja Oubina and Aspas all came close for the away team in the first half, before the action ramped up after the break.

Zaragoza’s Victor Rodriguez forced Varas into action, before Postiga directed an attempt straight at the goalkeeper.

Once again, the momentum shifted back in Celta’s favour, Cabral and Bermejo testing Zaragoza goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez.

Aspas was the next man to go close, his shot parried clear by Jimenez with 20 minute remaining.

As the clock began to tick down, the breakthrough finally arrived, Roberto Lago setting up Aspas to put Celta ahead.

Carlos Aranda and Glenn Loovens had half-chances to equalise for Zaragoza, but the visitors held firm.

The win, their fourth of the season but first in six matches, sees them climb to 15th, three points clear of the drop zone in a congested bottom third of the Spanish championship.
