Renato Tapia left behind the left knee injury that scared Celta de Vigo and the Peruvian team. This Wednesday, shortly after the double day for the Qatar 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, the Peruvian team footballer was active in LaLiga Santander and returned with a 2-0 victory over Osasuna.

The ‘Cabezón’ began the actions among the substitutes of the Galician team. Then, about the 60th minute of the match, Argentine coach Eduardo Coudet made the first change in his eleventh. Thus, the national player received the last indications to close his return to the fields.

Tapia entered the field of the Balaídos stadium to replace his teammate Denis Suárez. In this way, the Peruvian had half an hour to pick up the pace with a view to what is coming in the local championship (on Saturday, January 22 against Sevilla) and then the international commitments with the Bicolor in the Qualifiers.

The ‘Cabezón’ was absent from the game against Real Sociedad as a result of the indicated injury. However, from Celta’s medical staff there was optimism in the immediate recovery of the 26-year-old footballer. Tapia had already missed the commitment against Real Betis due to being infected with the coronavirus.

Celtic victory

Celta rediscovered their effective version against Atlético Osasuna (2-0), whom they beat in the first half in their only two approaches, to clear up the doubts that had been left by the defeats against Atlético Baleares, in the Copa del Rey, and Real society.

Celta did not take long to dominate, although they hardly caused any danger. With the lines together, Osasuna drowned out the celestial creation zone. The tactical battle, however, was broken by a winger, Hugo Mallo. His diagonal towards the edge of the area surprised the red defense, which was not expecting him. The Galician captain finished off with his left foot, his bad leg, from the front and Sergio Herrera collaborated so that it ended in a goal.

The 1-0 gave Eduardo Coudet’s team peace of mind, much more comfortable with spaces. Denis Suárez, Brais and Aspas came into play much more. And before the break he increased his income, after a great action by Denis Suárez that Santi Mina finished.
