Papu Gomez the hero as Sevilla beat Celta Vigo in 7-goal thriller

Papu Gomez was the hero for Sevilla in a stunning 4-3 win at Celta Vigo.

Jules Kounde had put Sevilla ahead early on, but an Iago Aspas double put the home side ahead.

Parity was restored by Fernando before Brais Mendez sent Celta in at the break with the lead. But Ivan Rakitic levelled again on the hour mark and, with less than a quarter of an hour to play, Gomez bagged his second since his January arrival.

The Argentine then had a chance to kill things off late on, but his curling effort fell just wide of the post.

Sevilla are now just four points off Barcelona, five off Real Madrid and six off LaLiga Santander leaders Atletico Madrid.
