  • Malaga 3-2 Getafe: Pedro Leon superb-strike, Baptista overhead-kick

    Malaga win a thriller match when hosting Getafe, Saturday 01/10/2011. Left behind two times, finally win and sit at the top of the La Liga table through screamer goal from Julio Baptista, overhead-kick in penalty-box, in injury times.

    Former Arsenal, Real Madrid and Sevilla star Baptista found the top corner with his bicycle kick to send Malaga's La Rosaleda stadium into raptures.

    Pedro Leon put Getafe in front at 55', The ball is bouncing free and Leon takes it on his thigh and unleashes a hellish volley into the far top corner! Unbelievable strike from the on-loan Madrid star.

    Getafe get leveler at 64', this time VAN NISTELROOY HEADS IN from a yard, Baptista with a bullet header that Codina got to but the ball looped up high - and the Dutchman was at the back post to score alongside two leaping defenders.

    Again Getafe back in front at 76, Eliseu goes down again looking for a free-kick and is ignored as Valera takes possession and crosses for the arriving Miku to score. Two minutes later Getafe lost one man, For some reason away midfielder Lacen is sent off for a second yellow card - for dissent, presumably.

    Maresca got lever at 88', Joris Mathijsen heads for goal and, after Baptista fails to connect with a rebound following Codina's save, Maresca is there to sweep home from close in. He grabs the ball and delivers it to the centre spot - Malaga want to win this game.
