- Direct Narration and statistics
Effectively, with just two good plays by Jorge Molina and Jaime Mata that led to Marc Cururella and Ángel Rodríguez's goals, Getafe, again very serious, won Valladolid 2-0 and placed himself in the fourth position that gives access to the next edition of the Champions League. The whole of José Bordalás seems to have no roof. At the moment, with 30 points in 17 days and qualified for the round of 16 of the Europa League, he is signing the best course of his history in the First Division. Getafe's ambition has no limits and his players live in a state of permanent grace.
On this occasion, Jorge Molina and Jaime Mata were in charge of opening a trap game, in which Getafe saw the faces with a team defined by a similar style marked by a complicated defensive framework difficult to overcome. Those are the games that get the most stuck to Getafe. When it is reflected in a mirror, it suffers in duels with very few occasions in which each one is gold. And, unlike Getafe, Valladolid has a lack: the goal.
The fatigue of the extra game they had on their legs did not affect the Getafe players, who jumped to the pitch with the news of the Uruguayan Mathías Olivera, Francisco Portillo and Jorge Molina. The three gave a little oxygen to their companions, who faced a group with more changes: Pedro Porro, Barca, Plano, Joaquín Fernández and Waldo Rubio, appeared in the eleven pucelano.
Precisely, it was Jorge Molina who was responsible for opening an excessively tactical shock, sometimes boring and rarely. Especially in the first part, in which Valladolid only shot at goal with a foul thrown by Sandro Ramírez and Getafe only did it in his goal.
Marc Cucurella scored it, in the 36th minute, after a good assist from Jorge Molina. The veteran striker of the blue box turned a thousand wonders inside the area to drive Kiko Olivas, Ghanaian Mohammed Salisu and Pedro Porro crazy in a tile. None could stop the blue striker, who gave the ball to his teammate and, almost at ease, beat Jordi Masip. Those were all the opportunities of the first act. Specifically, two. None more, but enough for Getafe, which after the resumption maintained its consistent line. He did not give options to Valladolid and was right in one of the three he had to increase income.
Jaime Mata's play
First, he tried with two headers: one of the Uruguayan Leandro Cabrera at the exit of a corner that ended the ball in the right post of the goal of Masip and another of Cucurella that stopped the goalkeeper of Valladolid. Then, the one that Jaime Mata manufactured from the bottom line of the right wing. He only manufactured a magnificent center that topped Angel head, which left from the bench to not fail again before the goal. The maneuver of his partner was a gift he did not miss.
Those three options were enough for Getafe. With their line of four impenetrable behind, together with the tireless duo formed by Mauro Arambarri and Nemanja Maksimovic in the center of the field, they left no options for Valladolid, who tried to react unsuccessfully with the outputs of the Rubén Alcaraz and Enes Ünal field.
In the end, the Cucurella and Angel goals were enough for Getafe, who doesn't want to stop dreaming of ambitious goals. In League, without a doubt, that of the Champions League that already touched last season, it has become a little reality with three points with which it occupies the fourth position over clubs such as Atlético de Madrid, Real Sociedad, el Athletic or Valencia. Almost nothing.
