Last Updated: 14/04/19 10:59pm
Jorge Molina's penalty in the sixth minute of time added-on helped Getafe avoid defeat but they failed to regain fourth spot in La Liga following a 2-2 draw at struggling Real Valladolid.
Mauro Arambarri's strike for Getafe after 14 minutes was cancelled out on the half hour by Sergi Guardiola while Valladolid were given a boost when Mathias Olivera was sent off after the interval.
Enes Unal's 69th-minute penalty seemed set to give Valladolid all three points for a win that would have kept them out of the bottom three but Molina struck from the spot in the dying seconds.
It was a let-off for Getafe but Sevilla, following their 3-2 win over Real Betis on Saturday, are now in pole position to claim the final Champions League place.
Valencia bounced back from defeat at Rayo Vallecano last week with a 3-1 victory over Levante to stay in the hunt for a top-four place.
Santi Mina's second-minute strike put Los Che ahead before three goals in the space of seven second-half minutes settled the clash.
Carlos Soler's 56th-minute own goal levelled matters but Goncalo Guedes restored Valencia's lead immediately afterwards before Mina gave them a cushion.
Inaki Williams bagged a brace as Athletic Bilbao edged out 10-man Rayo Vallecano 3-2.
Williams opened the scoring after only two minutes and then restored their lead just after the resumption following Alex Moreno's leveller on the stroke of half-time.
Luis Advincula was given his marching orders shortly after Williams' second goal before Raul Garcia extended Bilbao's lead in the 72nd minute. Raul De Tomas set up a grandstand finale with five minutes remaining.
Villarreal moved out of the relegation zone as Samuel Chukwueze's seventh-minute effort gave them a 1-0 win at fellow strugglers Girona.
Joan Jordan scored with five minutes remaining to help Eibar to a 1-1 draw at Real Sociedad, who had gone ahead in the opening seconds through Juanmi.
