Getafe vs Espanyol Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Getafe dropped further in the league table after a 2-0 defeat against Deportivo Alaves. The opening goal from Laguardia was a hammer blow to the fragile confidence of Getafe, as the team had valiantly fought in the first half. A second goal from Munir made the game safe or Alaves. Espanyol fell to a third consecutive winless match, as they lost 1-0 to Valencia. Rodrigo Moreno came up with the goal that unlocked the game with ease, while Espanyol failed to make a dent into Valencia’s defence.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The home team has come out successful in the last five games between Getafe and Espanyol. This incredible record is unlikely to extend, as Getafe have lacked the motivation over the last few weeks. Far too many defeats for Pepe Bordalas’ men have taken their confidence out of the window, while Espanyol are not great on the road. A draw seems the most likely outcome in this game.

The two teams have been low on goals over the last few weeks. In fact, Espanyol have been unable to score in more than a month. Gerard Moreno is the biggest scoring threat for the Catalan outfit, while Getafe’s return of six goals in as many games is unlikely to pose a huge threat. I would choose a game with less than 1.5 goals.

Getafe Preview

The recent form for Getafe has been so poor and it is likely that the team has already started thinking about the holidays. Getafe have no fear about the relegation places, while the European spots have recently slipped away due to a string of defeats. The only motivation for Getafe right now will be to finish in the top half of the table. Manager Pepe Bordalas may find it difficult to motivate his players using the same reason. There is a danger of Getafe dropping to as low as 16th in the last few weeks of the season. The large dip in form has also been down to a lack of goals, as Getafe have only managed six goals in as many games.

Getafe Team News

Mauro Arambarri (foot) is the only player unavailable for the Getafe, while Markel Bergara is missing due to a suspension.

Espanyol Preview

The recent trouble for Espanyol has come about due to a poor attack, which has been heavily reliant on Gerard Moreno throughout the campaign. The forward has been unable to score in his last three matches, and it is not a coincidence that Espanyol have been unable to score during this period. Despite having only managed eight victories throughout the campaign, Espanyol have been safe from relegation. After having taken 36 points, Espanyol will be quite relaxed about the 13-point advantage going into the last seven games.

Espanyol Team News

Adrian Lopez (meniscus), Diego Lopez (head), and Naldo (knee) are unavailable due to injuries, while Pablo Piatti, Oscar Gaitan (ankle), and José Manuel Juardo are doubtful for the game.
