1-0 Tino Costa 8'
2-0 David Navarro 63'
A poor performance at the Mestalla consigned Getafe to their third consecutive league defeat.
Tino Costa opened the scoring early on for the hosts with an excellent volley from inside the area, and David Navarro doubled Valencia's tally on the hour mark with a via a tap-in after Jordi Codina parried away the defender's initial effort.
Geta's midfield didn't show up on the day and a typical display of poor deep defending did little to settle the nerves either.
