Mayoral gives Getafe the first win against Alavés


A penalty goal scored by the azulón striker Borja Mayoral gave Getafe the first win (1-0) in the 2023-24 season against Alavés on the third day of the EA Sports League, played at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, in a very tight game in which there were few scoring chances.

The game was decided by a penalty for an elbow from Abqar to Latasa that Martínez Munuera whistled after consulting the VAR, and that Borja Mayoral converted into the only goal of the match in the 84th minute after being strongly protested by the visiting coach, Luis García Plaza .

With this result, Getafe is eleventh with 4 points, while Alavés is fourteenth, with 3. Pepe Bordalás’ men will visit the Santiago Bernabéu next Saturday (4:15 p.m.) and Alavés will also host Valencia on Saturday at Mendizorroza, starting at 6:30 p.m.
