According to GiveMeSports, the match saw Osasuna score a 'goal of the year' contender through Jesus Areso.

Raul Garcia opened the scoring for Los Rojillos in the sixth minute before Iker Munoz doubled the advantage in the 31st minute.

Two quick-fire goals from Borja Mayoral and Nemanja Maksimovic in the second half drew Getafe level.

However, with 10 minutes left on the clock, Areso fired the home the winner from one of the tightest angles.

Greenwood booed by fans

SPORTbible reports that the La Liga cracker was marked by an ugly moment involving Greenwood, with a section of fans booing the English youngster.

The striker was subjected to vile chants the last time the two teams squared off in September, with Osasuna fans brutally calling for the player to 'die.'

Surprisingly, the club's fanbase seemingly still harbours animosity towards the United academy graduate as they booed him throughout the encounter.

Greenwood's deal with Getafe is set to expire at the end of the season, and he would be required to return to Old Trafford to sort out his future.

The star forward has already been linked with a permanent move to La Liga, with Barcelona and Getafe keen on his services.

Man United's stance on Greenwood

Meanwhile, Sports Brief earlier reported that Man United’s stance on Greenwood remains unchanged, and the forward will almost certainly leave Old Trafford in the summer.

The Red Devils seem to have moved on from the striker, having signed Mason Mount and Rasmus Hojlund in the summer to bolster their attack as they struggle for consistency.

Mount joined United from rivals, Chelsea, while Hojlund arrived from Serie A side, Atalanta. However, the Red Devils have been underwhelming throughout their current campaign.
