Rayo Vallecano 1-2 Getafe: Visitors seal win in derbyOctober 21, 2018
Getafe sealed all three points in the Madrid derby against Rayo Vallecano, beating their opponents 2-1 on Sunday afternoon.
Picking a winner from this one before kick off would have been brave as two of Madrid’s smaller La Liga representatives went head to head in the derby.
Getafe started well and from the off – they pushed Rayo with chances falling to Mauro Arambarri, who tested the finger tips of Alberto Garcia in the home goal.
Whilst the visitors did dominate the early proceedings, Rayo did have a chance when Jordi Amat rose above everyone but saw his header saved by David Soria.
The second half saw the match become a lot more even but it was still the visitors who opened the scoring.
Dimitri Foulquier finished well after Antunes played in a superb ball and from that moment it looked like three points were heading to the away side.
And, four minutes later, they doubled their lead when defender Sergio Akieme put the ball in his own net following a chance for Getafe.
With the at 2-0 to Getafe, Rayo began to go all guns blazing and they did manage to get a goal back – seeing Raul de Tomas get himself a goal on the 74th minutes mark.
The home side failed to find a leveller though and frustrations got the better of them in the final stages as Oscar Trejo was sent off.
