Manchester United’s midweek conquerors Real Sociedad couldn’t deliver the same performance they won at Old Trafford during the week as they lost 2-1 to Getafe on Sunday.

Getafe went into the game looking for their first win of the season and had the chance to open the scoring in the first half when they were awarded a penalty.

David Soria was penalized by VAR after knocking out Borja Mayoral and the penalty was awarded after the referee checked the monitor of the pitch. However, former Roma man Mayoral saw his penalty saved by Soria in Sociedad’s goal.

The joy was short-lived for the visitors, however, as seven minutes before half time they had to replace Nigerian Umar Sadiq, who limped off the field and was replaced by Mohamed-Ali ‘Momo’ Cho.

Getafe then struck out in stoppage time of the first half by taking the lead via a skillfully taken free kick from Turkish attacker Enes Unal.

The home side scored a second goal three minutes after the break, when Carles Alena put in a shot from the edge of the penalty area and gave Quique Flores’s men a 2-0 lead.

Brais Mendez, who scored Real’s Europa League winner against United on Thursday, got Sociedad back into the game after fifty minutes with a header.

But Imanol Alguacil’s team could not find an equalizer and Getafe held on to their first win of the season.
