Burnley 2 Celta Vigo 2

Goals from Robbie Brady and Jeff Hendrick keep Clarets unbeaten in pre-season

2 August 2017

Celta Vigo found themselves stuck on the M6 but then gave the Clarets a welcome test in an entertaining draw as Sean Dyche’s side looks to find top gear ahead of the new Premier League season.

Celta’s traffic problems meant a 15-minute delay to kick-off at Turf Moor as Burnley played the first of two home friendlies against European opposition in the space of five days.

The La Liga side still looked stuck in a jam as they fell behind to a superb early strike from Robbie Brady.

Two top-class strikes from former Fulham midfielder Jozabed Sanchez before half-time were more in keeping with a side that reached the semi-finals of last season’s Europa League as the visitors then accelerated to lead at the break.

But the Clarets made sure they would keep their unbeaten pre-season run intact with just Saturday’s visit of Hannover 96 to come before the curtain-raiser at Chelsea on 12 August as Jeff Hendrick thumped home a 60th-minute equaliser to repeat the scoreline from the last meeting between the two sides three years ago.

Celta certainly started as though they were struggling to shake the journey out of their legs as they kept conceding possession in dangerous positions in their attempts to play the ball out from the back.

The Clarets pressed at every opportunity as they sensed the opportunity to take advantage with Jack Cork forcing goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez to make amends for another poor clearance with a save low to his right.

And with 12 minutes gone Burnley’s early pressure paid off as Celta lost the ball again.

There was still work to do, though, as Brady collected possession around half-way before bursting forward to pick out Sam Vokes.

Vokes, in turn, found Hendrick – invariably the furthest midfielder forward in support of Vokes – to lay the ball off to Republic of Ireland team-mate Brady.

And Brady needed no second invitation to pick out the top corner with a lovely first-time curling effort with his trusty left foot to make it 1-0 and continue his positive pre-season run.

Cork then lifted another effort over the top as the Clarets called the shots.

But Celta – whose domestic season starts a week after the Premier League kicks off – gradually found their feet and when they started to play their football in Burnley’s half began to pose a threat.

Charlie Taylor’s foul on Iago Aspas allowed the former Liverpool striker to test Nick Pope with a low free-kick.

The Clarets’ keeper was equal to that and an attempt from Andrew Hjulsager but had no chance when Jozabed found his range to stunning effect.

The former Fulham midfielder cut no ice in a short spell at Craven Cottage last season but showed his class by firing in twice in five minutes before the break.

His first effort from just inside the penalty area was touched into the top corner at full stretch by Pope but his second from further out gave the Clarets’ keeper even less of a chance as it flashed into the net, hit first-time with his right boot.

Burnley made their first two changes at half-time as Ben Mee replaced Stephen Ward, allowing Taylor to move outside, and Phil Bardsley taking over from Matt Lowton in the other full-back slot.

Celta brought on goalkeeper Ruben Blanco and he was quickly into the action, saving at the feet of Johann Berg Gudmundsson after the winger had cleverly beaten the last defender.

Bardsley was also forced into a vital intervention as he bravely blocked another piledriver from Jozabed as he went in search of his hat-trick.

And with an hour gone the Clarets were level as the Hendrick-Brady combination struck again to make it 2-2.

This time Brady delivered a dangerous free-kick which bounced around the box before dropping nicely for Hendrick to blast home from eight yards.

Celta followed that a minute later with a raft of substitutions as they changed their entire outfield team, including the introduction of former Clarets’ loanee John Guidetti.

But it was Pione Siston who threatened a third goal with a well-struck drive which Pope got down well to save.
