Cadiz held on for a 2-1 victory at Celta Vigo to end its winless streak in La Liga on Friday.

Anthony Lozano and Luis Alfonso Espino scored five minutes apart at the end of the first half to give the visitor the win.

Santi Mina pulled Celta closer by scoring in the 64th minute, but the host couldn't find the equalizer after twice hitting the woodwork in stoppage time at the Balaidos Stadium.

Real Madrid, Valencia and defending champion Atletico Madrid are tied at the top with 10 points each from four matches.
