Iago Aspas se lamenta con las manos en la cabeza durante el partido entre el Celta y el Barcelona.

Iago Aspas gave a recital in last night's 2-2 draw with Barcelona but there was an unhappy ending to the evening. The forward was uinjured battling for a loose ball in the centre of the park with afull-time almost up. Tests conducted late on Wednesday evening detected a Grade I tear to the Aspas' right hamstring - an injury which will keep him out of action for the next two to three weeks.

Aspas hoping to return for the derby

Celta will be without their top scorer for the weekend meeting with Valencia in Balaídos and also the following week's trip to Villarreal. With any luck, Aspas will be back in time for the Galician derby against Deportivo at Balaídos on 5 May.
