Celta Vigo 2-2 Getafe (Oct 8, 2023) Game Analysis

Mason Greenwood scored his first LaLiga goal in Getafe‘s 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo on Sunday.

Greenwood put the visitors 2-1 up in the 33rd minute with a first-time, far post finish — his first senior goal since January 2022 after a months-long suspension at Manchester United amid a criminal case due to allegations of attempted rape and assault, which was discontinued in February.

Earlier, Borja Mayoral had put Getafe ahead after just two minutes, Iago Aspas had missed a penalty and Jonathan Bamba had levelled for Celta before Getafe defender Domingos Duarte was sent off.

Greenwood’s goal put 10-man Getafe in front but their lead lasted just nine minutes, with Celta forward Jorgen Strand Larsen making it 2-2 before half-time.

Greenwood was replaced in the 61st minute, as coach Jose Bordalas introduced defensive midfielder Mauro Arambarri.

The on-loan forward has now made five LaLiga appearances for Getafe — two as a starter — since joining on loan from United on Sept. 1.
