José Bordalas happy with draw against LevanteOctober 23, 2017
Getafe boss Jose Bordalas has said that on the balance of play, both his side and Levante deserved a point in Saturday’s early La Liga fixture.
After a fairly even opening first 45 minutes, it was the visitors who took the lead when Faycal Fajr’s right footed shot from outside the box beat the home keeper.
The lead lasted just four minutes however as the impressive Jose Luis Morales was played in by Antonio Luna and he fired home.
There was few chances following the two goals but injuries to Levante’s Nano and Getafe’s Djené Dakonam saw seven minutes of stoppage time added on.
One final chance came the way of Ivi for the home side but his shot was blocked and the referee blew for full-time.
Bordalas’ side, who have now sit 13th in the standings have just one point in their last three games following the 4-0 win over Villarreal on 24th September.
The 53-year-old coach spoke to reporters after the game and said that he is happy with the efforts of his players, commenting on the game being fairly even.
“I’m happy with the team’s work, we did a serious performance. It was a pity to allow the to score so soon after we did, but both teams deserved not to be beaten.”
The Madrid based side must now prepare to face Alaves in the Copa del Rey on Tuesday evening, before hosting Real Sociedad at the weekend.
Bordalas is expected to rest a number of players for the game against Alaves, which include Vicente Guaita, Damián, Juan Cala, Djené, Markel Bergara and Jorge Molina, who have all featured from the start in the last nine competitive games.
