Hot Aspas leads Celta to La Liga victory

·1-min read

Veteran striker Iago Aspas has continued his fine start to the season by scoring twice in Celta Vigo's 3-0 rout of last-placed Cadiz in the Spanish league.

Friday's double took Aspas' tally to five goals from four matches, putting him at the top of the scoring list ahead of the weekend games.

Barcelona's Robert Lewandowski and Real Betis' Borja Iglesias have four each.

The result kept Cadiz as the only team yet to win a point or score.

The team from southern Spain, which just barely avoided relegation last season, has been outscored 10-0 in losses to Real Sociedad, Osasuna, Athletic Bilbao and Celta.

The 35-year-old Aspas scored in the 56th and 75th minutes for Celta. Oscar Rodriguez found the net in the 62nd at Balaidos Stadium.

On Saturday, Real Madrid and Betis meet in a showdown between the only league teams with a perfect start.

Another high-profile matchup will pit a Barcelona who are carrying momentum against Sevilla, who are yet to win.

Atletico Madrid, coming off two wins and a loss, visit Real Sociedad.
