15-year-old Romero makes La Liga history

The teenager replaced midfielder Iddrisu Baba for the closing stages for the visitors in a two-goal defeat, breaking an 81-year record previously held by Francisco Bao Rodriguez, known as Sanson, who made his league debut for Celta Vigo aged 15 years and 255 days in 1939.
