New blow in the Spanish tournament. Celta de Vigo fell 2-1 to Atlético Baleares for the round of 32 of the Copa del Rey and closed their participation in the contest. Renato Tapia’s team had a very opaque chance and could not overcome the duel against a team that has a much lower price than the Peruvian.
Although the Peruvian national team midfielder was there from the start, he could not do much to avoid defeat and was replaced in the second half. One of the most striking aspects of the match is that the national midfielder was eliminated by a team that is worth three times less than him.
As detailed on the Transfermarkt website, The price of the ‘Cabezón’ is around 15 million euros, while all of Atlético Baleares, a club that plays in the third category of the local championship, has an estimate of 5 million euros.
If we take into account the prices of both institutions, we can notice an even greater difference. The Celtic cast has a value of 121 million euros and multiplies the cost of its rival by 24 times. These figures add greater importance to the classification of the modest Las Palmas squad.
However, the performance of the island team has been surprising sports fans. In the previous round of the competition they achieved a historic 5-0 defeat against Getafe and this time they again beat a top-flight squad.
