Sevilla win thriller with Celta 4-3 to stay in title hunt

REUTERS: Sevilla twice came from behind to claim a 4-3 win at Celta Vigo in a chaotic La Liga game on Monday to keep their slim hopes of a title push alive.

Sevilla defender Jules Kounde gave the visitors an early lead only for an Iago Aspas double to quickly put the hosts in charge. Sevilla's Fernando equalised later in the first half only for Brais Mendez to restore Celta's lead before halftime.

Ivan Rakitic pulled Julen Lopetegui's side level on the hour-mark before substitute Papu Gomez snatched the winner in the 76th minute.

A fourth win in five league games took fourth-placed Sevilla on to 61 points after 30 games, six behind leaders Atletico Madrid. Celta are 10th on 37 points.
