0-1. 04. Uche. Got on the end of Poli's long cross to turn ball in on far post.
1-1. 24. Güiza. Headed into net after keeper pushed Nacho shot against bar.

This season's two revelation sides Getafe and Recreativo shared the points in another 1-1 draw, one of five such results this weekend. Uche opened the scoring for the visitors, turning in a cross on the far post in only the fourth minute. And Rosu had a couple of chances to increase the lead soon afterwards, the first turned by Belenguer for a corner and the second saved by Pato Abbondanzieri.

Getafe got back in the game though, Casquero shooting just wide. And soon afterwards Nacho connected with Cotelo's cross to produce a spectacular volley which López Vallejo could only push against the crossbar, and Güiza was there waiting to head the rebound back in to the net.

There were plenty of chances after that, Güiza and Pachón going close either side of half time and Uche testing Pato a couple of times. The local keeper saved the day in the end though, just stopping a chip from Aitor on a rapid breakaway, and then making a fingertip save from Beto's header in the dying minutes. A draw was a fair result in the end though, leaving both teams hovering just outside the European spots.
