Deportivo Alaves vs Getafe
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz).
Deportivo Alaves can try to change their losing streak in the opening of the new season La Liga at home when they face Getafe in the schedule.
Both their losses constitute a decline in the morale of the players, and Pablo Machin will have work to do in picking up his team from the double loss. They will host on the back of a 2-1 loss on the road against Granada in the league.
Getafe had a decent season last time in the league and they will aim to build on that form in this season of the campaign too. The 1-0 win at home against Osasuna in the opening match this term is an evidence of the visitors keeping their form intact.
With their form, they are likely to trouble the home team despite the result in the encounter by ninety minutes.
Alaves vs Getafe Head-to-head (h2h)
- Three of the previous four matches have ended in a draw.
- The host has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
- Only two of their past six meetings have seen both teams score.
- Their previous encounter resulted in a goalless draw at Alaves.
- The host has been unbeaten in the past four clashes at home.
Alaves vs Getafe Prediction
Alaves’s return to the top tier last season finished with a 16th spot in the league table. The host hasn’t been the brightest in the campaign, but both the fixtures last season with Getafe resulted in a draw.
The host enjoys the ground advantage, and it is their strongest suit in the league. Besides, within their last six h2h meetings, Getafe had only one win, and that too was at their home.
However, Getafe cannot be taken lightly in the middle as Jose Bordalas’s men can be a real danger for the opposition’s defense in the middle. The only thing that holds them back is their poor form on the road in which the Gaffer will have work to do.
Even then, his team has failed to take all three points from the host last season. Visiting on the back of a narrow win over Osasuna in the last league clash, the visitor can probably make the home teamwork for the points in the encounter.
So, the double chance favoring Alaves will probably be the best bet in the clash. Along with that, the tip for over 1.5 goals in ninety minutes will also serve the purpose for the punters to yield decent returns from the fixture.
