Cordoba 1 Getafe 2: Own goal, late winner bury hosts

An own goal and a late Getafe winner were the latest blows to Cordoba's dwindling survival hopes in La Liga.

Getafe inflicted more pain on La Liga cellar-dwellers Cordoba on Monday, coming from behind late to pinch a 2-1 win.

Hosts Cordoba were set to breathe new life into their hopes of survival in the Spanish top flight, as they led 1-0 in the dying stages at the Estadio Nuevo Arcangel.

Florin Andone had put Cordoba ahead in the 77th minute, but their bid for a fourth win of the season faltered late on.

A Fede Vico own goal handed Getafe an equaliser in the 87th minute, before Juan Rodriguez headed a stoppage-time winner to leave Cordoba four points adrift in bottom place - and seven points shy of safety with 26 games played.

Vico's own goal was notably calamitous, beating goalkeeper Mikel Saizar with a backheel flick that would have had spectators purring at the other end.

Getafe's fortune saw them earn their eighth win of the season, taking them five points clear of the bottom three.
