Referee awards Canella goal to Sporting team-mate Moi Gómez

Roberto Canella scored what could prove to be a crucial goal in Sporting Gijón's bid for LaLiga survival on Sunday, his second-half strike setting the 18th-placed side on their way to a 2-0 victory at fellow strugglers Leganés.

His 67th-minute effort - which found the net with the aid of a fumble from keeper Iago Herrerín - was followed by a fine late finish by Burgui as Rubi's men moved to within two points of their hosts, who sit one spot above the relegation zone.

Canella's goal awarded to Gómez in ref's report

But as things stand, Canella's goal (his first of the league season) isn't officially his - because referee Xavier Estrada Fernández has given it to team-mate Moi Gómez!

Estrada Fernández's match report from the week 22 clash clearly shows that the opener at Butarque has been awarded to ex-Villarreal and Getafe man Gómez.

Estrada's match report, in which Moi Gómez is listed as the scorer of the first goal.

Given the significance of Sporting's win over their direct rivals, however, Canella is unlikely to be overly concerned about whose name appears in the record books.
