BC-SOC-Spanish Roundup, 115 Atletico beats Getafe 1-0 before Europa League finalEds: APNewsNow.

Managerless Sevilla, who reached this season's Champions League quarter-finals, now have to beat Alaves next weekend to secure a spot in Europe's second-tier competition.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone will be absent from the touchline for the Europa League final in Lyon after UEFA upheld his four-match ban.

Getafe's defeat, combined with Sevilla's draw with Real Betis in the derby, means Jose Bordalas' side now can not finish in the top seven and earn a Europa League place.

Champions Barcelona, on 90 points, visit Levante on Sunday.

Getafe squandered a glorious chance to equalise later in the match, however, when Diego Godin conceded a penalty, which Faycal Fajr saw kept out by Jan Oblak 13 minutes from time.

The Slovenian made another good save in stoppage-time, tipping a header over the crossbar to ensuring Getafe missed out on seventh place to Sevilla, denying them a return to Europe for the first time in a decade.

"Hopefully, we'll have him with us and he'll be happy here, because all the great teams need a great goalkeeper".

Next up for Los Rojiblancos is their Europa League final showdown with Marseille on Wednesday night.

Bale struck the first goal of Real's thrashing of Celta with a surging run forward and low finish. Francisco "Isco" Alarcon, little-used defender Achraf Hakimi, and Toni Kroos added on, along with an own goal by Celta's Sergi Gomez, to ease to the big win at home.

Betis striker Loren bundled the ball in soon after Kjaer's strike to ensure his side will not have to play three playoff rounds to get into the Europa League.

Simeone's side have 75 points to Real's 72 and have a superior head-to-head record, meaning a win at Getafe would see them clinch second place, their highest finish since winning La Liga in 2014.
