Getafe and Osasuna played out a thrilling 2-2 draw at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez with Dani Guiza and Ibrahima Balde each scoring twice. Ibrahima put Osasuna ahead as early as the eighth minute as a slip from Getafe goalkeeper Miguel Angel Moya saw the striker's flicked header fall into an empty net. Getafe dominated the rest of the half but were profligate in front of goal and had to wait until the 62nd minute to get on level terms as substitute Guiza volleyed home from just outside the box. Ibrahima restored Osasuna's lead with a smart diving header from Raul Garcia's cross four minutes later but Guiza guaranteed a point for the hosts with a similar finish from Miguel Torres' cross 14 minutes from time. Ibrahima had impressed greatly on his first start for the club in the 3-0 win over Real Zaragoza on Sunday and the Senegalese striker got his first goal for the club inside the first 10 minutes as he headed on a Garcia cross and the ball ended up in the net as Moya slipped in his attempt to come and collect. Getafe responded well and were nearly level immediately but Miku overran the ball as he rounded Andres Fernandez and could not find a colleague in the middle from a narrow angle. Diego Castro shot just wide on 22 minutes after a neat turn inside the box and wasted an even better opportunity three minutes later as he wastefully fired over. Osasuna then had a penalty claim turned down as Ibrahima burst into the box from a nice through-ball by Nino and appeared to be nudged in the back as Moya smothered the ball at his feet. Luis Garcia introduced Guiza for Pedro Rios in the 53rd minute and the change had an immediate effect as the Spanish international controlled Sergio's clearance just outside the area and volleyed brilliantly just inside the post past Fernandez. However, four minutes later Osasuna were back in front as Ibrahima stayed onside from Garcia's cross to direct a diving header past Moya. Getafe and Guiza responded again to draw level with quarter of an hour left as Torres' cross from the left found the former Mallorca striker unmarked - and he made no mistake with a firm header at the near post. The hosts could have snatched the three points in the final stages as Miku was firstly denied by a great save by Fernandez and then the Venezuelan hooked over from inside the six-yard box.
