Getafe CF 3-1 Valencia CF
Getafe was playing well at the start of the match but a good play by Jonas lets Soldado take a shot at Moyà. He took it excellently and Valencia were in the lead in only four minutes.
Nine minutes later, Valencia saw Gavilán run down the left wing to cross to Pedro Rios who heads it it for the equalizer.
Miku scored the second for Getafe when he scored a header off of another cross from Gavilán in the 23rd minute. Messy defending in the box, no one could stop the ball in air. There were many white shirts surrounding the Venezuelan striker.
Bruno scored an own goal in the 29th minute, after failing to clear Gavilán’s free kick. The right back hit it over Guaita who could not manage to make the save.
The second half came along and Valencia still could not manage a goal. They were not getting better.
Valencia tried to make the offense stronger with the inclusion of Pablo Hernández, Mathieu and Aduriz. But things did not get much better. Mathieu was not as accurate with his crosses and Valencia did not try to flood the box for more chances.
Time was going by and a lackluster Valencia tried to get goals back, but were incapable of creating danger in Madrid. Getafe’s back four were doing a decent job in keeping Valencia’s forwards quiet.
Mathieu could have had a goal in the 74th minute, but managed a weak shot. Aduriz had a chance at goal in the 85th minute, but was offside for Feghouli’s pass.
Valencia fell again, this time in the Alfonso Perez Coliseum. Third place is not yet secured as Levante are home to Osasuna tomorrow. They are only within three points of Los Che.
