Liga - Getafe frustrate Sevilla on Emery's return

Getafe claimed a point in a 1-1 home draw with Sevilla as Unai Emery returned to La Liga at the helm of the Andalusian club.

Emery, who has not coached in the Spanish top flight since leaving Valencia last summer for an ill-fated spell at Spartak Moscow, saw his new side take the lead through Jose Antonio Reyes on 40 minutes.

Getafe pulled back onto level terms before the half-time break though as Adrian Colunga struck to the delight of the majority inside the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.

Both sides had chances to find a winner in the second half, but the stalemate endured, leaving Getafe 10th on 26 points and Sevilla three points back in 12th.
