After Granada’s large victory against Mallorca (4-1) and the more complicated one obtained by Bilbao against Betis (3-2), the 18th day of La Liga continued this Sunday at 6.30 p.m. At the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, Getafe (19th, 12 pts) therefore received Osasuna (12th, 22 pts). Unbeaten in the last five meetings in all competitions, the visitors were logically advancing in the shoes of the favorite, as the Azulones were going through a delicate period. Penultimate in Liga, Getafe, author of two small victories in the league, remained, in fact, on a draw against Alavés (1-1) and a stinging defeat against Atlético Baleares (0-5) in the Copa del Rey .
In a first act dominated by the men of Enrique Sanchez Flores, Getafe still lacked offensive realism to take the advantage. Faced with Gorritxoak, yet amorphous and unable to create the slightest opportunity, the Azulones did not take advantage and the two formations returned back to back at the break (0-0). Same story after returning from the locker room where the vagueness around the opposing surfaces was the key word of this meeting. 29 attempts and only 6 on target during this disappointing match. It was then finally necessary to wait for additional time of this meeting to see the score evolve through Poveda who offered the victory to Getafe at the end of the end (1-0, 90 + 3rd). Thanks to this snatched success, Getafe climbs back to 16th place. Osasuna remains stuck in 12th position.
