  • Éver Banega (79')

Getafe 1-1 Sevilla FC

Relegation battlers Getafe ended a run of seven straight Primera Liga defeats with a late equaliser to earn a 1-1 draw against Sevilla at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
A free-kick from Ever Banega with 11 minutes to go looked to have been enough to give the Andalucians a first away league win.
However, defender Emiliano Velazquez - who had given away the foul for Sevilla's goal - scored from close range after a corner with five minutes left to earn a point.
Sevilla had a good early chance when winger Vitolo was played clear for a one-on-one with the goalkeeper, but took a heavy touch at the edge of the penalty area.
Getafe had not scored for more than nine hours in their losing streak, and on 22 minutes saw an effort from Victor Rodriguez at the far post ruled out for offside.
Sevilla, aiming to chase down Villarreal in fourth place, had a chance on 39 minutes when French defender Adil Rami scuffed a shot at the keeper following a corner.
After Getafe midfielder Pablo Sarabia fired off target early in the second half, Sevilla broke the deadlock with 11 minutes left when Banega clipped an 18-yard free-kick up over the wall and although Vicente Guaita got his hand to it, he could not keep the ball out.
Getafe, however, were rewarded for going on the offensive when Velazquez lashed the ball in after the corner of the goal.
El Geta fans thought they had won it deep into stoppage time through Cala, but the offside flag was already up.
