Oghenekaro Etebo was in action for 21 minutes as Getafe ended a five-game winless run courtesy of Jaime Mata’s double to see off Real Sociedad and move to within two points of the Champions League places. on Tuesday night.

 

Mata gave Los Azulones the lead from the penalty spot in the 20th minute following a controversial refereeing decision, with Getafe’s Hugo Duro appearing to be the offender in the challenge with La Real defender Robin Le Normand.

Adnan Januzaj levelled the scoreline for the visitors ten minutes after the break after breaking Getafe’s offside trap before finding the net.

However, Mata won the points late on with an opportunistic finish after the visitors fell asleep defensively from a throw-in and Mata snuck in with the finish from a tight angle, although Real Sociedad goalkeeper Alex Remiro should have done better.
