Getafe vs Eibar
2018/19 Spanish La Liga
Date: Friday, 24th August 2018
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
The opening day fixture draw has not been kind of Getafe as they had to travel to Real Madrid and return with a defeat.
This was expected and the 2-0 FT score-line is decent when considering they had suffered some heavy defeats at the Bernabeu in recent seasons.
This Friday presents Getafe with a chance to bounce back with a win as they are against a side that suffered a surprised defeat at home on matchday 1.
We were expecting Eibar to pick three points against a newly promoted side like Huesca, but they disappointed and fell to a 1-2 defeat.
Eibar are a side that performed above expectations last season and finished 9th in the table. They were also benefitted by a number of strong teams underperforming.
If they are to repeat the feat this time, they must pick results at home, especially against those playing their trade for the first time in the league.
It may seem like the Los Armeros did well on the road last season. But the truth is that they are too one dimensional while away from home and hardly have the capacity to score goals or comeback from a losing positions.
Eibar finished last season with 0.94 goals scored in away games to 1.6 conceded, the numbers that qualifies them for a place in the bottom half of the table.
Meantime, Getafe averaged a humble 1.3 goals in home games. However, the 0.63 conceded per game is the third best in the league.

Getafe vs Eibar Prediction
The h2h matches between the two sides at Coliseum Alfonso Perez haven’t produced a winner in their three overall meetings.
Still, we have reasons to shoot for a Getafe win this time, this being the sturdy defense of the hosts against a typical goal shy visiting team.
Ultimately, goals will be at a premium and this brings us to the correct score of 1-0 home win priced at 11/2 odd a decent option for small stake bets.
