Striker Youssef El Arabi scored two goals and set up another to pace Granada in a wild 3-3 draw at Getafe in the Spanish league on Friday.

The result left Getafe winless in 13 straight rounds in the debut of new coach Cosmin Contra following the firing of Luis Garcia.

The shootout at Afonso Perez Coliseum included both sides having a player dismissed for two yellow cards.

Getafe led 2-1 at halftime on goals by Ciprian Marica and Lisandro Lopez, with El Arabi setting up Ivan "Riki" Sanchez in-between.

El Arabi got his first goal to make it 2-2 in the 62nd.

With Granada down to 10 men, Angel Lafita put Getafe back ahead in the 72nd, but El Arabi headed in his second in the 77th before Getafe also went down a man.
