Elche vs Getafe Prediction & Match Preview

Elche vs Getafe
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 10 January 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero.

The Green-Striped Ones are a relegation-battler in the Spanish top flight. They have not won a single game in the past two months, and as an added worry, they have conceded goals in plenty in the process.

They are also a recently promoted team to the competition, and certainly have felt the competition too strong for them here.

Meanwhile, Jose Bordalas’s men are going through a troubling spell as well. They too have been one of the worst teams in the league, and have been defensively a disaster.

On top of that, several of the previous h2h clashes have also had goals in plenty over the years.

With either team desperate for the three points, it’s expected that we are about to witness a high-scoring affair at the Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero.

Elche vs Getafe: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The latest encounter had ended in a 2-0 win for Bordalas’s men.
  • They had also scored two or more goals in every match-up since 2016.
  • 11 of the past 15 former clashes had goals from both teams.
  • Since 1999, both teams have failed to find the back of the net just once at this venue.

Elche vs Getafe Prediction

Jorge Almiron’s men lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Bilbao. In the meantime, Dakonam Djene and his boys lost 0-1 at home the past game week, against Valladolid.

Going on, the Green-Striped Ones were winless in ten of their last twelve overall games, and the two losses during this stretch had come against teams from the lower divisions, in the Copa del Rey.

At home, they have kept a clean sheet just once this whole season, and it had come against Huesca in the first week of October. Note that Huesca are also a recently promoted team.

On the other hand, their counterparts are on a three-game losing run, and they were winless in 11 of their past 13 overall fixtures. They have also kept a single clean sheet in their last ten overall match-ups, and this had come against another recently promoted squad – Cadiz.

And on the road, they have won just once in a league encounter, since March. In addition to that, a huge number of previous h2h meetings have also had goals in high frequency.

As such, this Saturday, with both teams determined to post a win, expect a high-scoring game.
