Celta Vigo are on a roll after following up their UEFA Europa League matchday two success with an eye-catching 4-3 victory against Liga giants Barcelona.

The Galician outfit beat Panathinaikos 2-0 on Thursday, but they surpassed that result with their fourth consecutive triumph in all competitions, running up a 3-0 lead against Barça with 33 minutes gone. The visitors responded twice after the break, but Pablo Hernández restored a little cushion before Gerard Piqué ensured a nervy finish.
