Two years ago the Vigo got a scandalous 4-1 with two goals by Iago Aspas and one by Nolito and Guidetti. Neymar would get the only Barça goal. Last year Celta also won, in this case 4-3. Pione Sisto, Iago Aspas, Mathieu in own goal and Pablo Hernandez made the local goals, while the Barça players were achieved by Piqué, twice, and Neymar.
