Ünal and Mayoral overcome the Getafe tragedy

With a three-goal lead at half-time, he Getafe played with fire and was about to immolate himself before the Girona, who woke up in the second act to close to a tie that would have been disastrous for a team that won 3-2 and provisionally left the relegation places.

There is not a moment of calm in the azulón club. He is unable to close his matches. The pressure generated by the possibility of losing the category is immense. There is no truce and, although they have very fine-tuned players like Enes Ünal, misfortune always haunts the men led by Quique Sánchez Flores.

The Turkish striker was the one who was in charge of generating false expectations of living a quiet day for the long-suffering Getafe fans. His double in the first act and his good attitude caused a shock on the scoreboard of the team from the south of Madrid. And, to his success, was joined by Borja Mayoral, who on the brink of half-time joined the party after making it 3-0 with a good shot from outside the area. Later, the party would be diluted until touching a funeral that finally did not arrive.

And it is that, if you have to talk about a name that right now holds Getafe, that is none other than that of Enes Ünal. The Turkish forward is an oasis in the desert that Getafe has wandered through in recent times. Almost all the hits come from his boots and Getafe is alive thanks to his figure.

If there are no surprises, the Getafe striker will leave the azulón club this summer. Even with a contract, he can leave some twenty million euros in the coffers of the entity chaired by Ángel Torres. deserves them. As he demonstrated against Girona, he is a very profitable striker for bigger clubs.

The script before the duel already provided a leading role for Ünal. That was to be seen. But it was clear that Getafe had green shoots in recent days, although without very positive results. That’s why, I needed to punch the table to be able to once and for all scare away all the ghosts that gripped a staff made to live in peace.

Quique Sánchez Flores’s men, despite giving a good image last day at the La Cerámica Stadium, suffered a painful defeat (2-1) that cut a streak of three games without losing (two draws against Rayo Vallecano and Atlético and a victory against Valencia).

Without a doubt, a change in trend was palpable without excessive prizes. And, Girona, who arrived at the Coliseum euphoric after chaining two consecutive victories, was going to pay the piper for the injustices Getafe has lived with with too adverse scores.

Quique made it clear before the duel that his team lacked a “fang”. His players took note and jumped onto the pitch of the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez wanting to sink their teeth into Girona, who, on the other hand, seemed to be playing a singles match between married couples. The Catalan team was surpassed in intensity and in play and very soon got Getafe’s first blow.

Munir El Haddadi, one of the novelties of Quique’s eleven, squeezed the ball out of Girona and found a prize. Arnau, very timorous, mishanded the ball to Santi Bueno and the Moroccan striker from Getafe gave the ball to Borja Mayoral, who in turn assisted Enes Ünal. The Turk, with all the goal for him, did not fail and after four minutes he put his teammates ahead.

Getafe did not step on the brake and obtained its second prize after a quarter of an hour, when Javi Hernández touched a cross from Portu with his hand. Ünal did not fail from eleven meters and scored another goal with which he surpassed Roberto Soldado and became, with thirty goals, the fourth top scorer in the history of the Azulón team in the League behind Manu del Moral, Ángel Rodríguez and Jaime Mata.

To Girona, Enes Ünal’s double did not affect him in the slightest. She followed hers. He did not reactivate at any time due to the desperation of Míchel, who from the bench was left without a voice, crying out for a reaction from his players.

did not arrive. Just a shot from Aleix García from outside the area that David Soria stopped without problems. it was even worsebecause Borja Mayoral on the edge of the break, made the third with an unstoppable shot from outside the area.

The entry after the break of Miguel Gutiérrez, David López and Valery Fernández changed the course of the duel. Taty Castellanos and Miguel Gutiérrez generated a lot of uncertainty with the 3-2 draw and Getafe, for twenty minutes, endured the downpour as best they could. Its good first part, with the impulse of Enes Ünal, it was enough to overcome a tragedy that finally did not come.
