El Geta welcomes the inform Alaves to their home in round 20 of the LaLiga on Friday.
The Deep blues are 6th in the table, currently in contention for the Europa League spot. They have been good this season after over half of the season is completed. With 7 wins and draws each they have got 28 points and are just 4 points behind their opponents for Friday.
From their previous 5 games in all competitions, they won 3 and lost only once. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 matches, but they never failed to net a goal in any of those matches.
José Bordalás, the manager of Getafe will be happy with his side’s recent home form as they have won 4 of their last 5 matches here. The only match they lost was against the league leaders and reigning champions Barcelona. More than 2.5 goals came in 3 of their previous games in front of the home fans and they have scored in all those matches as well.
Alaves has undergone a major upgrade since their 14th spot finish last season. They are 5th at the moment also with a chance to play in the Europa League next season. Although they are better at scoring with 22 goals, they are also conceding a goal per match.
“The Glorious One” is unbeaten in their last 4 competitive fixtures across Spain. This run includes 2 wins and their only loss in recent games came against Atletico Madrid in an away fixture. Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of the last 5 games they played in.
An alarming situation still exists for the Babazorros in away matches. They lost 3 of their recent 5 matches on the road, and they have only one win in that spell. Under 2.5 goals came in total in 3 of those matches as well.
A win would place Alaves to a better spot above Sevilla with only Barca and Atleti in front of them.
