Getafe beats Almeria 1-0 in first home game of new Spanish league home opener

  • Print

BARCELONA, Spain - A first-half goal by Alvaro Vazquez gave Getafe a 1-0 victory over Almeria on Friday in its first home match of the Spanish league season.

Vazquez, who was loaned to Swansea last season, arrived between two defenders to chest Freddy Hinestroza's deflected cross beyond goalkeeper Vicente Guaita following a counterattack in the 29th minute.

Almeria sporadically threatened to level through forward Jonathan Zongo, who almost set up Edgar Mendez in the 32nd before Guaita palmed away his goal-bound strike in the 44th.

Almeria remained winless after two rounds.

Valencia hosts Malaga later.

Atletico Madrid hosts Eibar on Saturday, while Barcelona visits Villarreal on Sunday before Real Madrid is at Real Sociedad.
