A draw against Real Valladolid was enough to avoid relegation
Getafe continues one more year in La Liga. The draw in Valladolid was enough to secure their permanence with 42 points. A long-suffering salvation that the team shared with the almost 600 fans who went to José Zorrilla. However, the tension and agony of the final moments gave way to celebration at the referee's whistle. Both teams took to the field knowing that making a mistake could be definitive.
Just a couple of approaches to David Soria's goal in the first half. The clearest chance to open the scoring came from the head of Jaime Mata. The striker almost made it 0-1 with a header that Masip saved on the line. One eye on the match, and one ear on the rest of the field. That's how a day of heart-stopping transistors was lived. At halftime, the match was at a fever pitch. One goal changed everything. The standings changed by the minute, with goals here and there. Even so, our team stood firm against the attempts.
Luis Milla came in for Arambarri, who returned to contribute his bit on the decisive day. Then came the turn of Algobia and Domingos Duarte. The final minutes passed like an eternity. The stadium turned out in full force to support their team, but the score remained at zero. It was the end of a very long season, which ended happily.
