Late winner moves Betis into 6th in Spanish league
Betis jumped from eighth to sixth in the standings with its third straight victory. It is one point behind fifth-place Villarreal.
The teams in fifth, sixth, and seventh places qualify for the Europa League.
Getafe, which dropped to 11th, missed a 65th-minute penalty kick when goalkeeper Antonio Adan stopped Francisco Portillo’s shot from the spot.
Getafe also came close when defender Vitorino Antunes struck the post with a free kick in the 73rd, and the hosts were denied an injury-time goal when the officiating crew ruled that a ball headed into the far corner did not fully cross the goal line. Getafe also had a first-half goal disallowed for offside.
