    • Valencia CF
    • 90+5' And Getafe have the win: they join Atletico Madrid in eighth while Valencia's Champions League ambitions have been dealt a blow. Table
    • 90+4' A long ball for Soldado comes off Alexis's head and beats Moya, but runs just past the far post.
    • 90+3' Feghouli should shoot but leaves the low cross and with Moya off his line, Soldado looks to lift the ball over the keeper from 20 yards - Getafe get away with it.
    • 90+2' Another yellow card for Ruiz for a late slide on Sarabia.
    • 90' Four minutes to be added on.
    • 89' Pablo annoyed that the officials adjudged the ball to be off the pitch as he crossed under pressure from Alexis.
    • 88' Five or six Valencia players offside from the free-kick when it is eventually taken.
    • 87' Parejo now booked for taking a quick free-kick. I find that a strange law in the Spanish game.
    • 87' Aduriz just caught offside from a Pablo chipped through-ball as Los Che counter.
    • 86' Getafe change: 19-year-old Pablo Sarabia on for Rios in midfield.
    • 84' Mathieu crosses from the left byline but there is no one there to meet it for Valencia.
    • 83' Rios booked for taking a quick free-kick. His set-piece is then headed away by Rami.
    • 82' Castro with a lovely flick to cut in and earn a free-kick in the final third.
    • 81' Getafe winding this match right down. Guiza down hurt after he was caught by Alba. There wasn't anything in it.
    • 79' Getafe change: Daniel Guiza on for Miku to acclaim from the stands.
    • 78' Castro is hurt after a solid 50-50 challenge with Parejo.
    • 77' Valencia change: Aritz Aduriz on for Jonas.
    • 75' Pablo racing away on the right after Valencia clear a corner. Feghouli's cross is ahead of Soldado but Mathieu is there on the far side to volley for goal... poorly. Geta clear their lines.
    • 75' Valencia (36%) and Getafe (34%) have conceded the highest proportion of their goals in the last 15 minutes of Liga matches this season.
    • 73' Casquero caught late by Pablo to earn a free-kick. Both players get up gingerly.
    • 72' Miku chases down Ruiz and wins the ball but is penalised for a foul. Rubbish decision right in front of the linesman, who waved his flag. Miku is then booked for kicking the ball away.
    • 71' He is recovered and attacks a Mathieu cross from the left along the floor. No success.
    • 70' Captain for the night Soldado hit from behind by Alexis as they contest an aerial ball.
    • 69' Valencia change: Jeremy Mathieu on for Bruno.
    • 69' Getafe change: club captain Javier Casquero on for Gavilan.
    • 67' Alba down the left for Feghouli to whip one to the near post where Soldado directs a header just over. He barely had time to react.
    • 65' Pablo finds Jonas on the right but his cross is too close to Moya. He could have gone down under the challenge there, inside the box.
    • 64' A few moments ago Diaz had a fistful of Victor Ruiz's Valencia shirt inside the box as the ball fell. Should have been a penalty.
    • 63' Hernandez, or Pablo as he is better known, with a quick touch to play in a team-mate - cut out by Getafe.
    • 61' After Los Che win a free-kick on the left touchline, they make a change: Pablo Hernandez on for fellow tiny attacker Piatti.
    • 61' Feghouli trying to work his way into the box and is crowded out by home defenders. The away players are too isolated in their play.
    • 60' Unai Emery ready to make a change.
    • 59' Feghouli penalised for a foul on the edge of the Getafe box as another attack breaks down.
    • 58' Gavilan with a strike from outside the box to test whether Guaita is awake. He is.
    • 56' Another corner defended by Getafe. Luis Garcia’s men have only won one of their last five league matches at the Coliseum (D2 L2).
    • 55' More pressure from Valencia, who are looking over their shoulders at Levante and Malaga. And their local rivals are up next in La Liga after their Europa League first leg. Valencia fixtures and results
    • 54' Penalty shout against Mane, but the Getafe left-back's handball was not deliberate.
    • 53' Valencia are trying to create from the back but their wily counter-attacking opponents are making it very difficult.
    • 52' Valencia have won their last four league meetings with El Geta; a win in this match would equal their best run of successive victories against a side from the capital (five vs Atletico between 1998 and 2000).
    • 51' Argentine Piatti booked for pulling back an opponent as he broke towards halfway. Getafe had defended a fourth corner - they are yet to win one themselves despite scoring three goals.
    • 50' Hesitant defending from Los Che as Getafe break. Eventually Mehdi Lacen sees a shot fly over.
    • 49' Feghouli turns in midfield to lead a Valencia attack but Alba cannot find a man when he passes into the danger area. He should have shot.
    • 47' Piatti whips one in from the left, but it is comfortable for Moya.
    • 46' Alba already booked for dissent after a throw went against Valencia.
    • 46' The second half begins.
    • 45+1' At the conclusion of which the ref blows up. 3-1 at the break.
    • 45' One minute to be added on.
    • 44' Was that an overhead kick by away defender Adil Rami? If it was, it didn't trouble Moya.
    • 43' There is all kinds of pushing and shoving as we await another corner. The ref tells them to cut it out. The kick is long and cleared.
    • 42' Getafe defend stoutly again. Apart from that ripper of a strike from Soldado, they have done well back there.
    • 41' Alba sends a ball to the far post where Pablo Piatti is just beaten to the ball. Corner to Valencia.
    • 40' Another scoop over the top from Jonas for Soldado, but Moya is again out to claim.
    • 38' Jonas with a deflected effort that does not threaten Getafe.
    • 37' It is a really open game, with players trying things in midfield all the time. The best of La Liga. Do you agree? Hit me up on Twitter
    • 35' Miguel Angel Moya comes to punch clear amid a mire of players from both sides. He is on loan from Los Che.
    • 34' Valencia’s last three league draws in Madrid have all been by the same scoreline: 0-0. What will this one be? 3-3? 4-4?
    • 33' Another free-kick for Gavilan in tht spot on the right. Valencia deal with this one.
    • 31' So much for Valencia being confident. Getafe's top-flight status should be safe, but a win here will be a welcome boost to their season. Table
    • 30' A THIRD GOAL FOR GETAFE! Comical Bruno own-goal for 3-1! Gavilan's free-kick from the right touchline comes off him and loops over Guaita before dropping in.
    • 29' Getafe are now without a clean sheet in their last eight Liga clashes with Los Che, conceding an average 2.7 goals per game.
    • 27' The crowd livid as Bruno smacks into Gavilan after he flicked the ball past him. Yellow card for the Valencia defender.
    • 25' Who will win this one is anyone's guess. Let's tempt the commentator's curse and say there will be plenty more goals...
    • 24' GETAFE SCORE AGAIN TO GO 2-1 AHEAD! Rios's long cross is stabbed into the ground by Gavilan and when the ball loops in, there is Miku to score his eighth goal of the season with his head.
    • 23' Dani Parejo with a sneaky turn and shove into Gavilan, who is down hurt.
    • 22' Flick from Jordi Alba to feed Jonas on the edge of the home box, but Getafe defend.
    • 20' Gavilan with a nutmeg and ball to Castro, whose first-time pass for another team-mate is cut out. Flowing game, this one.
    • 19' Castro wants a free-kick in midfield but is waved away. The home fans whistle the ref.
    • 17' It was lovely play from the attacking duo. Valencia cannot do anything with the resultant corner.
    • 16' Jonas with a scoop through for Soldado... he flicks over the diving home centre-half Cata Diaz but is blocked as he tries to do the same over Moya.
    • 15' Alexis heads away a Valencia free-kick as it is sent into the box.
    • 13' We could be in for a corker in this one - Valencia give the impression of composure as they pass in defence, but Getafe are very dangerous in the final third.
    • 12' GETAFE WITH THE EQUALISER! RIOS WITH THE HEADER FOR 1-1! Castro plays Jaime Gavilan down the left and his cross is perfect for Rios at the near post.
    • 10' A win for Valencia would equal their best run of away wins in the league this season (three).
    • 9' Los Che have pushed Getafe back into their own third of the field and are looking comfortable.
    • 8' Unai Emery’s men have dropped the joint-most points after opening the scoring in Liga matches this season (20).
    • 6' That is the striker's 16th Liga goal. He has now scored five goals against Getafe in La Liga: his most against any opponent for Valencia.
    • 5' OPENING GOAL FOR VALENCIA! SOLDADO WITH A LOVELY FINISH! He slams into the near-post top corner after Jonas plays him in with the outside of his right foot.
    • 5' Fast start in this Madrid satellite town.
    • 4' Rios again on the attack for the men in blue, feeding Diego Castro down the right - his low shot-cum-cross is blocked then claimed at the second attempt by Guaita.
    • 3' Pedro Rios with an ambitious strike from distance that whistles over the bar of Valencia keeper Vicente Guaita.
    • 2' Algerian Sofiane Feghouli on the right headed off at the penalty area by Getafe.
    • 1' Getafe kicking from right to left in the first half.
    • 20:58 The captains exchange pleasantries and we will kick off shortly.
    • 20:53 Getafe have lost their last four league meetings with Valencia.
    • 20:49 Unai Emery: "Sometimes I am the spokesperson and I have no fear to say what others dare not. The union between the team and the crowd can give strength, and we need the fans. I know that we are in a difficult situation; I know we've done many things wrong."
    • 20:48 Luis Garcia: "From Madrid it seems strange that in Valencia they criticise the coach and players when they are in such a good position. One year when they don't finish third they'll value Emery's work."
    • 20:48 Victor Ruiz slots back into defence for Valencia although Ever Banega and Sergio Canales remain sidelined, while Antonio Barragan is suspended.
    • 20:46 Getafe were already without Pedro Leon due to injury and Abdel Barrada, Alberto Lopo and Masilela are also now ruled out.
    • 20:45 Getafe: Moya; Valera, Cata Díaz, Alexis, Mane; Lacen, Míchel; Pedro Rios, Diego Castro, Gavilan; Miku /// Valencia: Guaita; Bruno, Rami, Victor Ruiz, Jordi Alba; Topal, Parejo; Feghouli, Jonas, Piatti; Soldado
