Getafe rejoined the fight for playing the Champions League next year after defeating this Monday 2-1 in their direct duel against Real Sociedad, thanks to a double by Jaime Mata, which ended the drought of victories ‘azulona’ and that lengthened the bad moment ‘txuri-urdin’.
The Colosseum cited the fifth and sixth classified, two teams that before the break were well placed in the fight for the ‘Champions’, but had not yet known the victory in the resumption of the championship. Despite this, they were still with options to fight for fourth place, although everything happened to end the losing streak.
And fortune smiled on those of José Bordalás, who were satisfied with a pillage by a veteran like Jorge Molina to get three points that place two from Sevilla, although on Thursday it is time to pay a visit to Real Madrid. The attacker was ready to quickly take the band and catch the realistic defense out of position, who could not avoid Jaime Mata sentencing in the final stages of a game in the second half of which his rival gave the feeling of being somewhat superior.
The Real Sociedad demonstrated in the first half that it has lost all the freshness in its football that it had offered before confinement. He hardly created danger against a Getafe, who did not shine too much, but who made the most of the visiting errors. Before the mistake of the final goal, Jaime Mata had put (min.19) ahead of his own after a strange penalty from Le Normand to Hugo Duro after a poor delivery by Alex Remiro.
However, the Gipuzkoan team, where Martin Odegaard did not play, reacted in the second half, with more verticality and speed up. Thus he found the equalizer, awarded by the VAR, of Januzaj (min.54), a goal that spurred him and made him corner his rival somewhat with occasions from Isak and Aritz.
Then, a lost ball by the sideline turned Jorge Molina into gold thanks to his connection with Mata and leaving the victory at home, endorsing the fourth defeat followed by a Real that moves away from fourth position, already seven points.
