Celta Vigo managed to deny further attempts by Real Madrid to extend their lead before they shot in their own feet in the 79th minute.

Celta Vigo goalkeeper, Vincente Guaita, almost saved Rudiger’s header after a corner, but it rattled the crossbar and bounced back down for an own goal.

Their trouble did not end there as nine minutes later a mix-up between Guaita and Carlos Dominguez resulted in another own goal.
