Not even nine minutes of stoppage time was enough for Sevilla to get the ball past David Soria in the Getafe net. Getafe managed to take the lead early due to some carelessness from Machín's side. Jorge Molina's good through ball and a defensive error allowed Ángel to put Getafe in front in a match that the away side knew how to play from the beginning. They prevented Sevilla from playing the way they wanted by suffocating them, taking advantage of the fact that VAR seemed to always be on their side, the side from Madrid knew how to go about taking the points home from Seville and further highlighted Sevilla's problems, who are without a goal in La Liga since the first fixture of the season in Vallecas.
A bad beginning makes a bad ending. This often repeated axiom does not always come true, but this Sunday at the Sánchez-Pizjuán it was exactly what happened to an out-of-sorts Sevilla side. Getafe were in front within three minutes, as Ángel took advantage of a through ball by Jorge Molina which the Sevilla centre-backs were unable to cut out. one on one with Vaclík the forward kept his cool to slot home the first goal that Sevilla have conceded at home this season. Having recovered from the early nerves that seemed to have caused this unsteady start, Sevilla tested David Soria in the Getafe goal although without having any clear-cut chances.

Getafe had a clear gameplan and looked to prevent a reaction from the Sevillistas. This lead to an intense passage of play in which five players were booked halfway through the first half. Amongst this, Jorge Molina missed the chance to get Getafe's second, with his chipped effort over Vaclík also clearing the bar and Sarabia also fired wide after expertly bringing down a long ball. To make matters worse for Sevilla, a VAR review that lasted over two minutes broke up the rhythm and brought about the second blow of the night for Sevilla. After another defensive error, the ball fell to Ángel in the six-yard box, who once again took advantage with minimum fuss. Almost immediately after, Nolito had a great chance to reduce the deficit but he was unable to take it and half-time arrived with many of the fans disgruntled.
