  • Live Commentary

    • 18:48 A very tight game in Getafe. Neither team looked to really take the game by the scruff of the neck. It was a moment of real quality from Mathieu on 44 minutes to win the match. How did you see it? Deserved win? Let's hear it.
    • 90+3' FT: Getafe 0-1 Valencia.
    • 90' 3 minutes added on.
    • 90' Great chance for Valencia. Feghouli has no excuses! It was four on two for Valencia and the sub opts for glory. Poor play.
    • 88' SUB: Banega (off), Viera (on)
    • 86' SUB: Albelda (off), Ruiz (on)
    • 85' There's absolutely nothing happening in this game. Valencia are in the driving seat.
    • 80' Just 10 minutes remaining here. Where is this game heading?
    • 78' Valencia fans in confident mood. They're doing their equivalent to the "Poznan".
    • 76' Valencia win another corner-kick. A superb turn from Banega with his back to goal and his shot was deflected wide of Moya's goal.
    • 73' It was Soldado vs. Moya again. The striker played through one-on-one but a fine right-hand from the Getafe stopper prevented a second.
    • 72' Huge chance for Valencia to make it two-goals. Banega found Soldado who was denied again.
    • 70' Valencia win the corner-kick. Deflected shot from Ever Banega.
    • 69' SUB: Jonas off; Feghouli on.
    • 68' SUB: Fede (off), Gavilan on.
    • 65' SUB: Barrada off; Sabragia on.
    • 63' Substitute Lafita left with little options on the left-wing, so, he cuts in and fires a shot straight at Costa.
    • 61' Baneda finds Soldado who is just offside again. That was really tight. The Valencia top scorer would've been through on goal.l
    • 58' Lafita of Getafe slightly offside again. Ricardo Costa showed great experience to step up.
    • 54' Getafe's Valera with a really poor cross there. A good chance to ask questions of the Valencia defence.
    • 53' From @optajose - 14 - Getafe have earned a league-high 14 points from losing positions at home in La Liga this term. Character
    • 49' Getafe look to gain something from a long throw-in, but Valencia eventually burst forward on the counter-attack with Jonas having a decent effort at goal.
    • 47' Great stop from Getafe's Moya to deny Soldado. He controlled a lovely, chipped pass from Jonas, before coming inside and seeing his shot blocked at his feet.
    • 45' The second 45 is underway - and Valencia quickly on the attack, but Soldado commits a needless foul.

    • 45+1' HT: Getafe 0-1 Valencia (Mathieu '44)
    • 45+1' Andres Guardado's wicked left-foot free-kick bends straight into the path of the waiting Soldado, but the ball drops awkwardly into Moya's palms.
    • 45' There is one minute of additional time.
    • 44' GOAL! Getafe 0-1 Valencia. It was a set-piece that found Parejo and he tee'd up Jeremy Mathieu who curled home a lovely left-foot strike past Moya. Nice goal.
    • 42' Getafe's Pedro Leon having a very good game for the hosts. You've voted him at 10.0 so far.
    • 41' Soldado's movement inside the box is a constant threat to Getafe. He turned well there but his short-ball goes right across the face of goal.
    • 35' Valencia have won 17 of their 35 games this season. Los Che can sit in fourth until late tonight, if they pick up the win today.
    • 34' Great break from Getafe. It started down the left-hand side with Leon's cross earning a corner-kick. Lafita was at the far-post and couldn't convert the ball into the net.
    • 30' Perhaps the first good chance for the home side. Pedro Leon picks it up at the back-post, controls well, but blazes a wayward left-foot strike over the bar.
    • 29' YELLOW: Ricardo Costa (Valencia)
    • 28' Getafe have won just once in their last 7 games in La Liga.
    • 27' Valencia boss Ernesto Valverde looking frustrated on the touchline. Another poor final ball, this time from Cissokho on the left.
    • 24' The game seems to be centred around corner-kicks. Valencia's Ricardo Costa defends Getafe's third corner of the match well. Still 0-0.
    • 21' Dani Parejo's outswinging corner-kick is met by Ricardo Costa who heads over.
    • 20' Rafa concedes a corner-kick. It's 4-2 Valencia on corners ... still 0-0 in goals.
    • 19' YELLOW: Lafita (Getafe)
    • 18' SUB for Getafe: Colunga (off), Lafita (on).
    • 10' Valencia looking strong on the left. Cissokho keen to overlap Guardado at every opportunity.
    • 9' Valencia come close! Roberto Soldado just inches away from heading in the opener. A brilliant cross from Andres Guardado.
    • 8' Getafe looking to spring a quick counter-attack, but Lafita caught offside.
    • 5' A fair start to the game. Getafe's early corner came to nothing, and Valencia's on the fifth minute, likewise. David Albelda has the first real effort at goal for Los Che - but it sails over.
    • '0 And we're underway here. A win for Getafe would move them into 7th.
    • 17:00 TEAMS: Getafe: Moya, Rafa, Fernandez, Fede, Valera, Xavi Torres, Borja, Castro, Barrada, Pedro Leon, Colunga… Subs: Codina, Alexis, Mane, Sarabia, Gavilan, Lafita, Michel //// Valencia: Guaita, Pereira, Ricardo Costa, Mathieu, Guardado, Parejo, Albelda, Cissokho, Banega, Jonas, Soldado… Subs: Ramos, Feghouli, Barraga, Viera, Valdez, Bernat, Ruiz
