Getafe seal bad tempered win at Osasuna

Osasuna’s strong start to the 2022/23 La Liga season suffered a blow ahead of the international break with a 2-0 home defeat to Getafe.

Both sides ended the game with 10 players on the pitch, as the contest descended into a scrap in the final stages, with Getafe edging out a key win.

The hosts looked sharp in the opening stages, as Aimar Oroz fired against the post, before Juan Iglesias broke into the box to slot Getafe in front on the half hour mark.
