Getafe debuted in La Liga with a hard-fought victory in the final minutes. Moments of agony with an eternal discount in which the visitors pressed for the equalizer. Borja Mayoral took the responsibility of taking the penalty, bringing ecstasy to the Coliseum. The striker from Madrid scored his first goal of the season to give the team three very important points. A well-deserved prize after persistently searching for a goal from the start.

Deportivo Alavés was very well positioned on the pitch. The first quarter of an hour passed with hardly any approaches, with the two teams feeling each other out. Borja had the clearest chance when he took advantage of a mistake in the opponent. After beating the goalkeeper the ball crashed against the post. Thus, with the score tied, we reached halftime. Getafe pressed with Latasa, Mata and Maksimovic, but without scoring a goal.

Bordalás made a shake-up on the bench after the restart. Aleñá and Alderete came on, with a standing ovation from the stands. The next to come on was Portu for Juan Iglesias, who was injured from an earlier knock. The action in both areas increased, and it only took two attacking actions for the fans to get even more excited about the victory. It wasn't until the 84th minute, and with the VAR waiting, that the goal finally arrived. Mayoral converted a penalty on Latasa to make it 1-0, which in the 84th minute was the first goal of the game. Finally, three very important points before visiting Bernabéu.
