Published on: 21 October 2019

Ghana international Mubarak Wakaso featured for Deportivo Alavés as they defeated Celta Vigo 2-0 in the Spanish La Liga on Sunday. 

Wakaso, who was suspended for missed his side's 2-1 defeat to Valencia, played full throttle as El Gloriosso won convincingly at the Mendizorroza.

After a goalless first-half,  Lisandra Mangallan combined with former Arsenal striker Lucas Perez to score the opener in the 50th minute of the game.

Perez doubled Alaves' lead with eight minutes left on the clock to seal victory for the home side.

Wakaso was cautioned in the 31st minute but the tireless midfielder made sure the back-line of Alaves was protected.

His compatriot Joseph Aidoo also lasted the entire duration of the game for Celta Vigo.
