Result: Adrian Colunga double fires Getafe into eighth

Getafe move into eighth place in La Liga courtesy of an Adrian Colunga brace against Espanyol at the Estadi Cornella-El Prat.

Getage have ended a run of eight straight defeats away from home with a 1-0 win over Espanyol at the Estadi Cornella-El Prat in La Liga.

Victory for the Azulones sees them climb into eighth place in the table.

The home side should have taken the lead in the 10th minute when Diego Colotto got on the end of Sergio Garcia's cross, but the defender headed straight at Miguel Moya.

Adrian Colunga squandered a glorious chance down the other end moments later, as he fired wide of an empty goal after he had rounded Francisco Casilla.

Roberto Lago then made a vital block to prevent Christian Stuani from putting the hosts in front after 19 minutes.

It took until the 73rd minute before the deadlock was broken by Colunga, who took one touch to control Pablo Sarabia's incisive through-ball and coolly slide home his first of the season.

Blanquiblaus came close to equalising when Joan Capdevila met Pizzi's corner at the near post, but his header missed the target.

However, the points were sealed in injury time when more good work from Sarabia set up Colunga at the back post, and he made no mistake in firing past Casilla.
