Getafe, with a goal by Frenchman Dimitri Foulquier and another own goal by Sergio Akieme, took the victory (2-1) against Rayo, in a very tight and intense derby that left the Vallecano team and allowed the blues are in the middle of the classification. Rayo and Getafe played a Madrid derby of great need to which both came with many doubts. The Vallecano team for its declining situation and the Azulón club for chaining a bad run of four consecutive games without winning.
With almost no time for the audience to sit in their seats, the Getafe gave the first scare Vallecana fans with a good play that ended with a hand of hand of the Uruguayan Mauro Arambarri that took a good stop Alberto Garcia. The Rayo, with the imposing physical of the Belgian Giannelli Imbula, wanted to get the ball played from behind and Getafe pressed very high, although the risks for controlling the ball too much passed him invoice with failures that Getafe took to play against.
At fifteen minutes, Rayo could open the scoring with the best chance of the first half. It was with a header in the heart of the Jordi Amat area that left a dead ball that was anticipated by David Soria just when he was going to finish off Gálvez. From that action the match became very even, with abundant game in midfield but without clear chances for either team, They sinned to have a lot of the ball on their feet and shoot little on goal despite their approaches to the rival area.
In the second half the match became very tight and there were numerous interruptions due to the faults of both, some quite hard that were paid with warnings. Even so, Rayo and Getafe tried to find the opposite goal with their best tricks. The one closest to opening the scoring was Rayo with a center that got poisoned by Embarba and ended up hitting the right post of David Soria's goal. However, Getafe was more successful after Antunes put a measured ball from the left wing that Foulquier, ahead of his marker, finished impeccably head to the bottom of the net.
Shortly after, Getafe scored the second thanks to the misfortune of the Ray. Jaime Mata put a center from the left and Akieme, with all the time to clear, touched the ball to the race and introduced it into his goal. The canterano del Rayo, who made his first debut in this derby, received the support of some of his teammates and especially of his fans, who encouraged him with a loud applause and he was redeemed with an assist for the goal by Raúl de Tomás, that reduced distances with a good shot from the front.
The game ended with no more goals because Rayo, despite trying all the tricks, including several strikers on the scene, found a well-planted Getafe who knew how to suffer with success and slow down the game with pauses that desperated his rival and the local fans. In that despair, the Argentine Oscar Trejo ended up sent off by a double yellow.
