Aspas hits seventh goal in six matches as Celta beat Leganes

Iago Aspas' seventh goal in six La Liga games boosted Celta Vigo to a 1-0 victory over Leganes.

In the sixth minute there was applause around Balaidos for Eduardo Berizzo -- Celta's former manager, now in charge of Sevilla -- who this week revealed he has prostate cancer.

Aspas headed just wide before testing Pichu Cuellar with a tricky shot in the 20th minute.

The former Liverpool forward got his goal from the penalty spot after a foul by Erik Moran.

Pione Sisto blasted over shortly after half-time, but Leganes grew in confidence and, in the 77th minute, Alexander Szymanowski hit a post with a powerful drive.

Alexander then teed up Miguel Angel Guerrero for another effort that struck an upright.

Celta held on but there was late disappointment for midfielder Jonny Castro, who picked up a booking which rules him out of next weekend's trip to play Barcelona at the Nou Camp.
