Celta 0-2 Malaga: Los Boquerones boost their survival hopes

Celta 0-2 Malaga: Los Boquerones boost their survival hopes

Bernd Schuster's men move up to 12th place with Friday's victory as they look to ensure survival in the Spanish top flight

Ignacio Camacho scored twice to secure a valuable 2-0 win for relegation-threatened Malaga at Celta Vigo.

Bernd Schuster's men are among a host of teams tightly bunched together near the foot of La Liga, but now sit six points clear of the bottom three following a second successive away win.

Camacho was twice left unmarked to score in the space of eight first-half minutes as Malaga seized control.

The 65th-minute dismissal of Duda, who was sent off for kicking out at Rafinha, threatened to hand Celta a lifeline, but they could not find a way back into the game and are only a point ahead of Malaga as a result.

Camacho's opener came after 24 minutes. A cross from the right found its way to the far post and the 23-year-old midfielder had time and space to tap home from close range.

Abysmal marking from a free-kick allowed Camacho to grab a second on 32 minutes with a near-post header from Duda's left-wing delivery.

Duda was subsequently dismissed for a needless show of petulance, yet Malaga were able to keep Celta at bay.
