Successful review

Martinez Munuera sent the player off in the second half for a second bookable offense after he was booked in the first half for protesting a Raphael Varane handball that the referee did not give. Celta Vigo presented images and videos to show that Ramos did make contact with the players leg. Competition reviewed the decision and gave the Celta player the benefit of the doubt.

The Moañes striker is allowed to play against Real Sociedad on Sunday in an effort to keep his lead at the top of the Spanish strikers' table. He leads it by two goals ahead of Aritz Aduriz.
