John Guidetti bags brace as Celta Vigo edge seven-goal thriller

Celta Vigo ended a three-game losing streak by beating Levante 4-3 in an entertaining game at Balaidos.
John Guidetti struck twice before half-time for the hosts and Iago Aspas netted after the break to seemingly wrap up the points, but two goals in as many minutes from Deyverson and Pedro Lopez put Levante right back in contention.
Fabian Orellana then scored after 84 minutes to give the Galicians breathing space, although Pedro Morales netted five minutes later to ensure a tense finish.
Celta stay in fifth place thanks to the victory, while Levante stay bottom of the Primera Division.
Former Manchester City trainee Guidetti put Eduardo Berizzo's side in charge with two goals in the space of five minutes, first tapping in a pass from Aspas, then chipping the ball over Diego Marino and in off the post.
Aspas then smashed the ball past the hapless goalkeeper after racing into a gap in the visiting defence.
Deyverson's header gave Levante a glimmer of hope and then Lopez volleyed in at the near post to give them a fighting chance.
A 10-minute spell of pressure for Levante followed as they searched for an equaliser, only for Orellana to latch onto a pass by Aspas to beat Marino and put the game out of the visitors' reach.
But Morales made sure Celta had to sweat to take all the points, pouncing on the rebound after Sergio Alvarez parried a shot from Roger.
