Nikola Žigić Saves Santander's Day

Racing Santander took three crucial points from hapless Getafe, which now has lost four straight.  The matches’ only goal was scored by the 28-year-old Serbian centre forward.  The first-half strike came after an excellent cross from Óscar Serrano Rodrígue. 

Santander sits in 10th with 25 points, Getafe in 14th with 21.

Žigić spent the fall of 2008 helping fellow La Liga side Valencia advance deep into the 2008-09 UEFA Cup.  Here is his goal versus Belgian side Club Brugge.
