Celta Vigo took all three points from a crucial relegation six-pointer on Monday. Mario Bermejo's stoppage time winner completed a come from behind victory that moves Celta within two points of safety and drops Zaragoza into last.

Celta Vigo and Real Zaragoza looked poised to leave Estadio Balaídos with a point apeice until Mario Bermejo scored two minutes into stoppage time to propel Os Celestes to a potentially massive victory. Zaragoza meanwhile sink to the bottom of La Liga, still having not won a match in 2013.

Cristian Sapunaru's header put Zaragoza in front in the 26th minute, manuerving unmakred through the Celta defense on a set piece and getting on the end of Apoño's cross, sending it past Javi Varas.

Alex Lopez equalized ten minutes later for the home side, heading a cross from the right side by Augusto Fernández just over the line, despite the best efforts of Roberto Gago to keep the ball in play.

The game look destined for a draw until the 92nd minute when Fabián Orellana made a run down the left and sent a low cross that appeared to be touched on towards the far post by Park Chu-Young. Bermejo was waiting and placed his shot over two defenders and the goalkeeper -- all of whom had gone to ground -- and inside the post for the winner.

Celta move up to 19th place one point behind Mallorca in 18th and two points behind Granada out of the drop zone.
