Getafe vs Celta Vigo
Spain – La Liga
Date: Monday, 19 February 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Getafe will be hoping to continue their fine run on five straight league outings without a defeat on Monday when they are set to close the Matchday hosting Celta Vigo at Coliseum Alfonso Perez. Even though the hosts are unbeaten in last five matches, it’s only four points in last four league ties for them.
Nonetheless, the goalless draw they’ve managed to hold on to last weekend away at runaway leaders Barcelona showed an impressive defensive display from the league’s newcomers who have thus kept their net untouched on two subsequent occasions in Primera Division. Azulones now sit 11th, just two points behind their counterparts Celta Vigo and a win here might help them break into the top half of the standings.
The visitors have been playing hot and cold since the start of the season which is why they are miles away from the contest for European football next term. Their defensive line lacked meticulousness in most recent outings which have seen the Sky Blues concede four against Deportivo Alaves and Espanyol. Nonetheless, Emiliano Unzue’s side did produce well at the other end, led by the phenomenal Iago Aspas who has notched 15 goals so far in the season. The Spaniard has netted four in last four appearances for the Sky Blues and he will no doubts be the main threat to Getafe’s goal here at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Getafe vs Celta Vigo: Head-to-head
Azulones have the chance to make it all square at five wins for each of the teams with a victory here.
Getafe have been much more successful in matches played at Coliseum Alfonso Perez where they’ve defeated Celta on four occasions in six outings.
None of last three H2H matches between these two outfits has seen three or more goals scored.
Getafe vs Celta Vigo: Prediction
We do have reasons to expect the low-scoring trend to be continued here since Getafe have been super solid at the back lately.
Azulones are undefeated in last eight home matches in La Liga and they’ve kept their net untouched in five of last six home outings in the competition.
