Espanyol vs Getafe Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Espanyol come on the back of back-to-back league defeats, as the team suffered a 2-0 loss against Valencia at home. A strong start to the game saw Espanyol strike the woodwork twice – through Gerard Moreno and Sergi Darder. Valencia got their act together in the second half and came up with two goals through Geoffrey Kondogbia and Santi Mina. Getafe continued with the resurgent form with a 4-1 win over struggling Deportivo Alaves. Early goals from Bergara and Jorge Molina provided a crucial advantage for the home team, and Angel Rodriguez piled more misery on Alaves following a brace in the second half. Christian Santos provided a late consolation for the away team.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Gerard Moreno is an injury concern coming into the game and lack of Leo Baptistao puts Espanyol at a major disadvantage in terms of scoring goals. It has been the club’s Achilles heel so far this season and the problems could only get worse in the game against Getafe. The newly promoted outfit have managed to score seven goals in six away games. The team suffered just one away defeat, but they have also only managed one away victory. This game is a prime candidate for a draw. Even though recent games between Espanyol and Getafe have produced goals, this is likely to be a low scoring match with Espanyol still one of the top teams at the back. There have been less than 2.5 goals in the last six matches involving Espanyol. Rather than pick the total goals market, I would go with Espanyol scoring under 1.5 goals.

Draw – 12/5

Total Espanyol goals under 1.5 – 4/7

Espanyol scored over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Getafe have not conceded a goal in 60% of their last 10 games played

Espanyol Preview

Espanyol are struggling for form and rhythm. Back-to-back disappointing results still leaves the club in the bottom half of the table. A reason for Espanyol being positioned 14th in the league table with the season only a few games away from the winter break is the return of just nine league goals so far. It translates into less than a goal per game. Espanyol may have the best defence of all the teams in the bottom half, but it has not been reciprocated by the attackers. Gerard Moreno leads the scoring charts at Espanyol with four goals.

Espanyol Team News

Adrian Lopez (meniscus), Gerard Moreno (leg), Pau Lopez (leg), and Leonardo Carrilho Baptistao (thigh) are the players on the sidelines for Espanyol manager Quique Flores.

Getafe Preview

Getafe are moving up the table and are now up to 10th in the standings following a three-game unbeaten run. The victories over Real Sociedad and Alaves may have come about due to home advantage, but it gives Getafe a significant advantage nonetheless. After having been one of the poor attacking teams so far this season, Getafe have been able to score 11 goals in the last six games. This has taken the overall tally to a respectable 19 goals in 12 matches. At the back, Getafe have been quite decent with 14 goals conceded. Angel Rodriguez is turning out to be a key player for the club and his brace against Alaves took his season’s tally to 6 league goals.

Getafe Team News

Gaku Shibasaki (foot) is the only player on the sidelines for Getafe.
