Celta misses chance to join Barcelona atop Spanish league

MADRID (AP) — Celta Vigo relinquished a two-goal lead in a disappointing 3-3 home draw against 10-man Las Palmas on Sunday, missing a chance to join Barcelona atop the Spanish league.

Chilean playmaker Fabian Orellana scored a goal & set up the other two for the Galicia region team, yet Las Palmas rallied with two unanswered goals to equalize the game despite playing a man down from the 11th minute.

Now only modest Basque club Eibar can match Barcelona after the third round. It plays at Malaga after Sunday.

p>Barcelona remained perfect after coming from behind for a 2-1 win at Atletico Madrid on Saturday with goals by Neymar & Lionel Messi.

Real Madrid trounced Espanyol 6-0 with five goals by Cristiano Ronaldo, who became Real Madrid's all-time leading scorer in the league.
