Getafe wrote the latest chapter in their fairytale debut season in Europe after Cosmin Contra´s last-minute equaliser earned them a 1-1 draw in the away leg of their UEFA Cup quarter-final clash with Bayern Munich.

Bayern dominated early on in the rain at the Allianz Arena and took a deserved lead in the 26th minute through Luca Toni.

But Romania defender Contra snatched a vital away goal for the minnows from Madrid to level the match with seconds remaining.
