Real Sociedad showed their superiority in the opening stages of the game and Imanol Agirretxe putthe visiting team in front in the fourth minute after a cross from Carlos Vela. Soon after, the Mexican forward repeated this passage of great play on the counter attack with Agirretxe heading the second goal for the 'txuri-urdin'. Getafe then woke up and managed to reduce the deficit when Ciprian Marica found the net. Thegoal put the home team back in the game but they were not able to find the equaliser before the break.
