Getafe vs Celta Vigo
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 9 February 2019
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Celta finally ended their five-loss streak seven days ago when a huge 1-0 victory over 4th-placed Sevilla moved them outside of the danger area. Defensive midfielder Okay Yokuslu scored his second goal of the season to make the difference against Los Rojiblancos.
The head coach Miguel Cardoso felt a huge relief to see his men keeping a clean sheet against such lethal attacking line. It will certainly serve as a massive confidence-booster for Celt who have previously conceded two or more goals in five consecutive league matches.
Can the Sky Blues build on such success and make it two wins on the spin on Saturday when they travel to Coliseum Alfonso Perez to take on Getafe exactly at noon?
It will by no means be an easy task for the visitors as Azulones have been very tough to break down in their own backyard throughout the entire campaign.
Getafe vs Celta Vigo: Head-to-head
The head to head record is all level at five wins, draws and losses for each of teams.
The home court advantage played a huge role in the history of this match-up.
Getafe won five, drew one and lost one of seven home clashes against the Sky Blues.
Four of past five head to head encounters saw fewer than three goals scored.
Getafe vs Celta Vigo: Prediction
Azulones are enjoying one of the best La Liga campaigns in their history. They hold the sky-high 5th position after 22 rounds. However, a well congested schedule caused a streak of two defeats and a draw in last three games across competitions meaning Jose Bordalas’ men will not head into the match I the highest of spirits.
Getafe still have to be considered favourites here, though. They won five of past six home matches in all competitions. They shipped no more than six goals in ten league outings at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Since Celta also kept their net untouched last weekend against the likes of Sevilla, we have reasons to go for the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at 1.53 odds here.
