London: Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas scored a brace to help his side thump defending champions Barcelona 4-1 in the La Liga clash.
The Spaniard struck clinical finishes in either half before Manuel Nolito opened the scoring for Celta in the 26th minute against a substandard Barcelona side, the Guardian reported.
Although Neymar pulled one back for Barca after 80 minutes, the Celta substitute John Guidetti extended the score line three minutes later.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid edged past Athletic Bilbao 2-1 to go on top of the table, thanks to Karim Benzema’s brace. (ANI)
