- Getafe rushed to react, with Jorge Molina shooting a calculated shot against the crossbar two minutes after, Angel Rodriguez compelling a superb spare from home goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez.
- The two sides kept on making chances in the 2nd half, however it was Getafe who broke the present state of affairs when Mata, a 66th-minute substitute for Mauro Arambarri, drove home a low shot to equalize the scoreboard, with only 12 minutes left on the clock.
- Alvarez delivered another urgent spare to keep out Robert Ibanez’s low exertion in the end stages and Getafe goalkeeper David Soria Solis guaranteed a point for his side when dismissing Brais Mendez’s shot.
Remember when I said I would never talk about anything that isn’t wrestling? Well, I lied. It’s time to show my true colours. It’s time to shout, loud and proud, LET’S GO CELTA!! #CeltaGetafe #HalaCelta
