Getafe vs Espanyol
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 15 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Just a month ago Getafe were genuine contenders for the Europa League spots. However, they fell down into the bottom half of the Primera Division ladder after losing four of last five matches. The attacking sharpness is no longer there as Azulones failed to find the net in each of back-to-back defeats to Real Betis and Deportivo Alaves. Can Jose Bordalas’ men arrest the current slump in form and snatch the spoils on Sunday evening against Espanyol?
The Budgerigars also struggled badly for goals recently. They could not produce up front in last three league ties, claiming just a single point along the way. The opposition included the likes do Real Betis, Deportivo Alaves and Valencia. The team led by Quique Sanchez Flores has generally had a dismal campaign this season. They have been particularly poor on travels, winning just one of 15 so far.
Espanyol did not score a single goal in three of last four league affairs on the road. They could face troubles ending such run here against Getafe given that Azulones have generally conceded rarely in front of the home crowd throughout the season. Yes, the hosts will come into the game off the back of two straight home defeats, but they conceded only one goal in each of these losses to Levante and Real Betis.
Getafe vs Espanyol: Head-to-head
Each of last five head to head games between these likes saw home teams on the victorious side.
Both teams scored only twice in last nine head to head games.
Teams have five wins apiece in 14 matches at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Getafe vs Espanyol: Prediction
Getafe are worth backing to claim the victory at 2.05 since Espanyol have really been struggling on travels throughout the entire season.
The under 2.5 goals FT is a banker bet at 1.50 knowing that neither of the two sides produced in the final third recently. Braver tipsters can try with the 1-0 win for the hosts at 5.50.
