Getafe top Malaga in La Liga
JUAN Cala’s goal inside the final 20 minutes gave Getafe a 1-0 victory here over Malaga, the second-worst football side in the Spanish La Liga.
The word ahead of the match in suburban Madrid was that another loss would spell the end for Malaga coach Michel who, coincidentally, began his firstdivision managing career a decade ago with Getafe, reports Efe.
Sitting comfortably in the middle of the La Liga table, Getafe and their fans continue to dream of qualifying for European play.
The hosts controlled play throughout the first half, but their dominance did not lead to goals and the sides went to the dressing room deadlocked 0-0. Little changed after the break and the second half included a span of 30 minutes with no chances on goal for either side.
