Valencia blew a huge chance to move to within two points of Barcelona at the top of La Liga as they slumped to a first defeat of the season, losing 1-0 at Getafe.
The visitors’ disappointment was also compounded by the fact Getafe played for 65 minutes a man down after Mauro Arambarri was sent off midway through the first half.
However, a Valencia shorn of the creative talents of PSG loanee Goncalo Guedes through injury lacked ideas to break the hosts down and were beaten by Markel Bergara’s deflected effort 24 minutes from time.
“Congratulations to them, they won, I don’t think it was a fair result but that is football,” Valencia captain Dani Parejo said
“It is not an excuse, but to see good football and to be the best league in the world, I don’t think you can play on pitches in the condition it was today.”
