La Liga: Rayo Vallecano 3 Getafe 1
By Football News
Rayo Vallecano moved up to seventh in La Liga with an impressive victory over Getafe on Monday night.
Spanish veteran Piti netted a brace for the victors, while Lass also got his name on the scoresheet.
Paco Alcacer did manage to find the back of the net for Getafe, but it was a mere consolation as Rayo Vallecano picked up a deserved three points.
Rayo Vallecano started the better of the two sides and Lass gave them the lead after just 14 minutes when he struck from a tight angle.
That advantage was doubled just prior to the half hour mark when Javi Fuego set up Piti and the Rayo Vallecano forward made no mistake with his left boot.
Piti then grabbed his second just seven minutes into the second half to make it 3-0, only for Alcacer to nod home a goal for Getafe moments later to give the visitors hope.
Despite the fact both sides had late chances, the match finished 3-1 as Rayo Vallecano climbed to seventh to be just two points off a Europa League position.
Getafe remain in 10th place, some four points behind Rayo Vallecano.
