Goalkeeper David Soria saved a penalty in the Spanish league on Friday to help his side draw 0-0 with city rivals Vallecano in Spanish league Getafe. Just like that, Vallecano missed the chance to lead the La Liga table.
Anthony Illora ‘s side welcomed Getafe in the Spanish capital in Friday night’s game, but neither side were able to find a breakthrough.
The visitors created better chances at the start as Nemanja Maksimovic’s header was tipped over the crossbar by Rayo goalkeeper Stol Dimitrievski.

After the restart, Vallecano looked to have a perfect chance to force their way up front as Isi Palazon’s attack caught Fabrizio Angileri’s hand inside the box.
However, Oscar Trejo’s weak shot was saved by David Soria, and Radamel Falcao, who came on as a substitute, was ruled offside by VAR and tested Soria in the closing stages.
