The biggest win of a high scoring weekend came in Madrid, where Getafe got their revenge for being knocked out of the cup with a 5-0 victory over Espanyol. Güiza headed his side into the lead in only the fourth minute from Redondo's cross, and Riki came close to making it two soon afterwards. Calatayud saved comfortably from Pandiani midway through the first half, but Pernía made it two a couple of minutes later when he picked up a pass from Güiza to score.
Lotina made two substitutions at the break, and Tamudo headed just wide soon after the restart. But Güiza steered a looping header past Gorka from Vivar Dorado's long pass to make it three, and Pernía crashed home a spectacular free kick ten minutes later for his sixth of the season. Espanyol were heading for their first away defeat in eight games, and Gavilán wrapped things up, turning in Güiza's cross to round off his side's biggest victory in the first division near the end.
