Aspas Stakes World Cup Claim With A Hat-trick Against Sevilla

Sevilla may have had the Copa del Rey final on their minds after they were destroyed 4-0 by Celta Vigo, and Iago Aspas in particular.

The Spaniard had a field day against the Andalusians, helping himself to a 21 minute hat-trick in the second half.

A match between two bright, attacking teams had begun with both showing industry and purpose, and in many respects, cancelling each other out.

The breakthrough came via a Guilherme Arana own goal seven minutes before half time, though it’s unlikely anyone foresaw the collapse that came later.

Two in three minutes from Aspas, both assisted by Pablo Hernandez, took the game away from the visitors, and his third with 12 to play was the icing on the cake.
