Getafe edge out Levante

Getafe moved into sixth place in the Primera Division as a Pedro Leon goal was enough to guide them to a 1-0 win over Levante on Friday.

Pedro struck in the 79th minute after a match which was short on attacking quality.

While victory moved the hosts above Real Sociedad, it leaves Levante in a precarious position as they suffered a fourth successive loss.

Getafe had won just once in five games coming into Friday's match, derailing them somewhat after a string of four successive victories, with Levante six places and three points adrift.

The teams had scored just 30 goals between them coming into this match and there was little of real attacking intent in the early stages.

Pedro Mosquera fired over for the hosts from distance and although both sides managed to force corners, they produced nothing.

Simao headed over for Levante but half-time arrived unsurprisingly goalless.

The first few minutes of the second half were in direct contrast to the first 45 minutes with three shots in less than three minutes.

Fernandez Borja fired in a 20-yard shot which was caught by Levante goalkeeper Javi Jimenez.

It was then the visitors' turn to go on the attack.

David Barral's shot was blocked and from Papa Diop's subsequent corner Simao's close-range header was tipped round the post by Miguel Moya.

Getafe were then indebted to Moya moments later when Diop's corner was met by Barral, whose header was gathered by the goalkeeper.

After the early flurry of chances, the game again became more pedestrian, the sides trading weak shots.

It was hard to see where a goal was going to come from but Getafe did manage to make the breakthrough 11 minutes from time.

Diego Castro's pass from the right found Pedro Leon and he drilled a right-footed shot into the bottom left-hand corner of the goal.

Levante offered little in response until the final minute when Sergio Pinto hit the bar with an 18-yard curling shot.
