Getafe come from behind to beat Sociedad

Real Sociedad de Fútbol failed to consolidate fourth place in the Liga, losing 2-1 to Getafe CF to remain just two points clear in the final UEFA Champions League qualifying berth.

Real Sociedad de Fútbol missed the opportunity to consolidate fourth place in the Liga with a 2-1 loss at Getafe CF.

Sociedad, chasing a first appearance in Europe's premier club competition since 2003/04, got off to a fast start in central Spain and took the lead courtesy of a Carlos Vela header after just four minutes. However, their advantage lasted less than a quarter of an hour, Pedro León pulling Getafe level with a powerful side-footed finish. Abdelaziz Barrada completed the turnaround before the interval.

Defeat means Philippe Montanier's side remain just two points clear of Valencia CF in the Spanish top flight's final UEFA Champions League qualifying berth. Getafe, meanwhile, are up to eighth with four fixtures remaining.
