The Getafe of Bordalás was able to anesthetize the ‘Coudet’ impact, who pursued his fifth straight victory at the Celta de Vigo front. The Alicante coach, who assured that David Soria was not in the game due to any discomfort after the match against Cádiz, was shocked by giving the title to Rubén Yañez again and putting Maksimovic as the companion of the Turkish Enes Unal in an attempt to drown the ball’s departure from the celestial squad, which made only a change in its victory against Alavés (2-0).
This time it was Miguel Baeza, not Fran Beltrán, who was in charge of replacing the wounded Santi Mina in Coudet’s eleven, who was aiming for his fifth consecutive win at the Coliseum in his sixth match leading Celta, a milestone that the Galicians have not accomplished for more than 20 years.
When, in the sixth minute, Damián Suárez invented a goal against which Rubén Blanco could do nothing, the game could not put the azulones more face. The Uruguayan right-back, to whom we had already reminded him of a target other than a beautiful one, made Denis Suárez a tunnel and cleaned the Celtarian goal’s cobwebs with a shoe from the left corner of the vast field.
He was faced with the perfect scenario at Getafe. He could offer the initiative with an advantage on the scoreboard to a Celta who feels relaxed with the ball and is waiting crouched on the counter for his chance.
But what Damien gave to his team was taken away by Damien himself. Iago Aspas, who thus broke his jinx against the Madrid players, converted an innocent penalty from the Uruguayan on his compatriot Lucas Olaza.
In their eleven previous matches, the ‘Príncipe de las Bateas’ had not scored a goal against Getafe, with Azulón being the only LaLiga team along with Elche against whom he had not scored. Aspas hunted Gerard Moreno at the head of the LaLiga Santander top scorers with his eighth objective of the season.
The game could well have ended there, as there was quite nothing happening in the remaining 75 minutes. The locals tried to stifle the ingenuity of the Coudet people, but the attack was inoperable. Cucurella, angered before the final whistle by González Fuertes, changed sides with ‘Cucho’ to try to give Getafe more inside the action, but not even like that.
The revisions did not promote the meeting either. Ángel is no longer the agitator he was last season, Jaime Mata seems to be far from his best version, and a catastrophic result has been completed by the youth team John Patrick, Bordalás bet ahead of Francisco Portillo.
It is crazy that a footballer like the Malacitano has only added 37 minutes so far in the League with the difficulties that Getafe is having in the attack.
The omnipresence of tireless Djené and Renato Tapia in the absence of magic was the highlight of a second-half that Getafe is sure to regret at the Wanda Metropolitano next Wednesday.
Damián Suárez and Cabaco saw three yellow cards from Nyom, Damián Suárez and Cabaco that will keep them out of the game against Atlético de Madrid, in which Bordalás will have to reconstruct his defense puzzle completely because he can not count on Chema either, who will complete his third and last penalty match.
