BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -Rayo Vallecano came from behind to beat 10-man Celta Vigo 3-2 on Saturday for its second straight win in the Spanish league.

Celta striker Iago Aspas had given the visitors a 2-0 lead with goals in the 12th and 34th minutes.

But the match took a dramatic swing in Rayo's favor when Celta defender Gustavo Cabral received his second yellow card six minutes from halftime.

Forward Leo Carrilho pulled one back for Rayo with a header in the 59th before Roberto "Tito'' Triguero was left unmarked to level with his 72nd-minute header.

Francisco "Piti'' Medina completed the comeback with a spot kick in the 82nd after Celta's Andres Tunez pulled down Andrija Delibasic in the area.

Promoted Celta remained without a point from six away games this season.
