MADRID: Getafe's Champions League qualifying hopes took a knock as they resumed their La Liga campaign after a three-month hiatus with a 2-1 defeat behind closed doors at Granada on Friday.

David Timor's first-half opener was cancelled out in the second half by Djene's own goal following a blunder by goalkeeper David Soria, whose hands were again shaky as Carlos Fernandez struck the winner with 11 minutes left.

The result left Getafe in fifth place on 46 points from 28 games, level on points with fourth-placed Real Sociedad who play their game in hand at home to Osasuna on Sunday.

Sevilla beat Real Betis 2-0 on Thursday to reach 50 points and tighten their grip on third place.

Valencia were held to a 1-1 home draw by 10-man Levante after the visitors levelled eight minutes into stoppage time with a VAR-awarded penalty.

Gonzalo Melero converted the last-gasp spot kick to cancel out Rodrigo's late opener as Europe-chasing Valencia stayed seventh on 43 points from 28 games.

The result left Levante in 12th with 34 points. Agencies
