IANS  |  Getafe 

Getafe needed a goal in stoppage time to prevail 1-0 against in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie.

Both Getafe -- seventh in LaLiga with hopes of reaching -- and newly promoted Valladolid, currently four points above the drop zone, opted to start mainly as subs for the contest on Wednesday, reports news.

The only real scoring opportunity of a dull first half came two minutes before the break, when a header by Getafe's Ignasi Miquel went over the crossbar.

Things got livelier after the re-start. Valladolid's forced a save by minutes before visiting netminder Yoel Rodriguez turned aside a strike by Getafe forward

Rodriguez was tested again a few minutes later by a Sebastian Cristoforo header from close range.

Two minutes into stoppage time, Rodriguez came off his line to stymie Getafe's Jorge Molina, who served up a cross for Angel to head into the empty net.
