Denis Suarez Provides Beautiful Assist For Celta Vigo Equaliser Against Real Madrid

Denis Suarez provided a perfect assist for Santi Mina, with an excellent outside of the boot pass, as Celta Vigo took two points from league leaders Real Madrid.

Celta had taken the lead in the seventh minute at the Bernabeu but two goals in the second half from Real, the second a penalty from captain Sergio Ramos, had but them ahead.

With just five minutes to go, and Los Blancos heading back to a three point lead over Barcelona in the table, former Barca man Suarez played an inch perfect pass to Mina, who had an easy task to score.

It was just the third assist of the Spaniard's season in the league but it serves as a reminder of the skill he has after a poor spell at Arsenal last season.

He went on loan to the Premier League side in January 2019 but made just six appearances in all competitions and looked short on quality and confidence in that time.

The 26-year-old has started 15 games for Celta this season and the assist keeps Celta just above the relegation zone, although it might be just as significant to his former side.


The draw leaves Los Blancos just one point clear of rivals Barca, where Suarez was an academy product, and the two sides meet in just two weeks time.

It's not been the ideal season for the Catalan giants, who sacked Ernesto Valverde last month, but a win at the Bernabeu could take them back to the top of the table with just 12 games of the season to go.

After the draw Real manager Zinedine Zidane revealed he wasn't worried about the result, saying, "There's nothing to explain, it's just the way things are, it's football.

"I'm not worried about it, but I'm disappointed, as always when you drop two points at home."
