After a three-month break at Granada on Friday with a 2-1 loss behind closed doors, Getafe’s Champions League qualifying aspirations took a blow as they resumed their La Liga campaign.
After a blunder from goalkeeper David Soria, whose hands were shaky again as Carlos Fernandez scored the winner with 11 minutes remaining, David Timor’s first-half opener was canceled out by Djene’s own goal in the second.
Playing their game in hand at home to Osasuna on Sunday, and placing points with fourth-placed Real Sociedad, the result left Getafe fifth out of 28 games at 46 points,
Granada has moved up to eighth on 41 points.
After a long Spanish League suspension due to the COVID-19 crisis, the game got off to a slow start, but Getafe went ahead in the 20th minute when Timor curled a fine shot from just outside the area under the cross.
After 70 minutes, after Soria struggled to manage Fede Vico’s bouncing free-kick, Granada hit back when Djene chested the ball into her net.
The home side doubled their count nine minutes later, as Fernandez fired home after Soria parried his first attempt back on his route.
On Thursday Sevilla beat Real Betis 2-0 to reach 50 points and tighten their grip on third place.
