Getafe moves away from the relegation zone after beating Elche

Getafe achieved a very important victory in Alicante against Elche (3-1), a direct rival in the fight for permanence, and is moving away from the danger zone for now.

The protagonist of the game was the young Japanese Takefusa Kubo, on loan from Real Madrid in this winter market, who debuted with his new team in the 65th minute, with 1-1 on the scoreboard, and participated in the goals that would end up giving the victory to Madrid, the work of Jaime Mata (68) and Ángel (from prison in 85).

Raúl Guti had overtaken the people of Elche at the beginning of the match (3), but the locals’ chances of victory were mortgaged after the expulsion of Argentine defender Iván Marcone at the beginning of the second period (51), when the Getafenses had already drawn by half by Marc Cucurella (38).
