Match Preview: Getafe
Getafe find themselves in the middle of an intriguing run that has seen them draw most of their recent games. This has left the hosts entering the final round trapped in no man’s land between the European places and the relegation zone, a position similar to the one in which they ended the last campaign, having avoided relegation by just two points.
Much more improvement across the board is still required to finish higher in the table this time around, especially in terms of performance given the Blues have scored just 13 goals in their first 11 La Liga matches.
Once upon a time, Getafe was still the team that could fight for places in European competition. Now this is an ordinary Spanish middle peasant, clinging to every point.
The team’s intransigence is evidenced by the fact that the team drew 6 times in the championship, with 5 of them coming in the last 5 matches.
The hosts know how to dry up the game against serious opponents, but this style of play works against them in matches with weaker teams.
Getafe simply does not know how to crack defensive redoubts. This is why draws come. The team scored a total of 13 goals – a little more than 1 goal per game. This performance is clearly not encouraging. After reading 1win review it’s better to bet on the total under.
Match Preview: Almeria
If anyone needed further confirmation that Almeria are underperforming in Spain’s top flight this season, the 1-2 defeat at home to Las Palmas was it.
New coach Gaizka Garitano is likely to be given the time and patience he asked for when signing, but their first two La Liga matches of his tenure have not depicted improvement.
The 2-5 defeat away to Girona in his first game was the third away game in a row where they have conceded more than three goals.
The change of head coach has not yet helped Almeria leave 20th place – in two matches with Gaiska Garitano, the team suffered two defeats with a total score of 3:7.
The Andalusians still concede the most goals in the championship, while at the same time, it should be noted that the team scored in 9 out of 11 matches in the current season.
- Almeria has not had a victory in the league for 15 games (5 draws + 9 losses);
- In the last eight matches of Almeria in the championship, the bet was “Total over 2.5 goals”;
Getafe do not have a single home defeat this season. Both teams love to play the bus, because every point is valuable to them. And not all opponents manage to crack their defense in the first half when they still have strength.
Based on the analysis and the form of both teams, the prediction of at least one goal from Almeria seems very likely. An interesting match is expected and we could see both teams score for points.
