Match facts:

Los Granotes gained a win even though Azulones managed to take more shots on goal during the course of play. Getafe fired in 18 shots, with six of them on target, while Levante produced seven shots, four of which were accurate.

Getafe controlled possession for 63.8% of the match thanks to strong open field play. Geta won 54 duels and 17 headers, which led to eight shots, including six on target. Álvaro made the biggest impact of any substitute after coming on for Ángel Lafita in the 60th minute, as he took two shots. Pedro León had five shots for Getafe, more than any of his team-mates. The combination of Rafa to Mehdi Lacen was the most common during the match, as the two players connected 17 times.

Azulones's inability to take the lead in the first half, even while controlling 65.4% of the possession, was an early indication of the eventual result. Both sides had 10 shots in the first half, and Getafe put two attempts on goal compared with two for Levante.

Azulones are in 11th place with a record of three wins, four losses and one draw. Los Granotes now sit in fifth in the table with a record of four wins, three losses and one draw.
