The opening match was completely in favour of Mitchell, Celta only episodically appeared in sight Kameni. The first worthwhile moment of the match came from Ramirez when Sandro in the penalty area skipped past the opponent and hit in the opposite direction to Alvarez but the goalkeeper managed to raise his hand and to reflect the impact.
Midway through the first half Celta woke up and was very active in attack, but the score was opened in Malaga.
