Valencia fall to first defeat, Getafe vs Valencia 1-0
Valencia played with an extra man from the 25th minute at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez as Mauro Arambarri was sent off for a foul that prompted his second yellow card in a four-minute span. The Uruguay midfielder had been shown his first card in the 21st after another foul.
Not long before the red card, mid table Getafe also had a goal disallowed for offside.
Valencia struggled to create significant scoring opportunities despite the extra player, while Getafe kept threatening on counter attacks.
In a tense affair, Valencia struggled to continue the momentum that they have built up from previous games and were dealt a hammer blow when Markel Bergara sent a rocket into the top corner of the net just after the hour mark.
