MADRID — A late goal by Pablo Sarabia gave Getafe a 2-1 comeback win against Celta Vigo in the Spanish league Monday.

Charles had given the visitors the lead when he latched on to a long throw-in and beat Getafe goalkeeper Jordi Codina in the 15th minute.

Alvaro Vazquez levelled with his third goal of the season by running up the right flank after collecting Pablo Sarabia's pass and shooting past goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez in the 19th.

Diego Castro missed a penalty for Getafe in the 78th but Sarabia beat Alvarez in the 86th for the winner after being set up by a back-heel pass from Croatia midfielder Jorge Sammir.

Getafe climbed to 14th place on 20 points after 20 rounds while Elche is 17th on 17 points.
