La Liga Round Up: Getafe falls to Granada as Valencia edges Levante

Getafe's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were dealt a huge blow after Granda came from behind to beat them 2-1 on Friday in La Liga.

Played behind closed doors at Los Carmenes, Granada scored two late goals in nine minutes as a Djene Dakonam own-goal and Carlos Fernandez’s finish wiped out Getafe’s lead, given to them in the first half by David Timor. 

The defeat means Getafe stay fifth and hand Atletico Madrid the chance to overtake them if they can win away at Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. 

In the other played on Friday evening, Levante found an equalizer deep in stoppage time through a VAR-awarded penalty converted by Gonzalo Melero.

The hosts took an 89th minute lead through a Jose Gaya pass to Spanish national teamer Rodrigo

The last quarter-hour gave the hosts hope thanks to a second yellow card shown to Levante forward Roger Marti in the 74th minute.

The draw keeps Valencia seventh, two points ahead of Granada and three points back of the top four. Levante’s European hopes are cooked, as the visitors’ 33 points is nine points off seventh.
