Getafe opened their account with a 1-0 victory over Almería on Friday evening. Alvaro Vázquez got the only goal midway through the first half with more than a bit of fortune, Hinestroza’s cross deflecting off a defender and going in to the net off the striker’s back. Otherwise though most chances fell to the visitors, new keeper Guaita putting in a solid performance with saves from Zongo, Hemed and Thievy amongst others.
