Getafe vs Girona
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 29 April 2018
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
This has been a wonderful season for the newly promoted sides Getafe and Girona and yet could end it on a high note by securing European football next season. But, only one of the teams could get there in a potential four horse race for 1 play-off spot.
Getafe are 8th and Girona are on 9th with 1 point separating the two teams, but Saturday’s hosts are level on points with Sevilla on 7th place, the lone Europa League qualification play-off spot. So, this is a must win game for both sides.
In terms of playing form, Getafe is the team with momentum and confidence. They come on the back of a three match win streak which includes a morale boosting away victory at Valencia.
Furthermore, Getafe’s home form has been always good this season and they are fifth best home team in the table.
Girona’s form took a U-turn lately and they could have been already in the top six of the table. Only 1 win and 1 draw came from their last 6 games suffering 4 defeats. We can say that this started with the 6-3 defeat at Real Madrid and it seems like they haven’t recovered from it at all.
The current away form of Girona is underwhelming as well with the team picking just 2 wins from their last 10 outings, drew 2 and lost 6.
Getafe vs Girona: Head-to-head
Girona won the last three matches against Getafe without conceding a goal.
The first leg clash of the current season is settled for Girona by an early goal from Uruguay international Christian Stuani.
Getafe vs Girona: Prediction
This could be a tight battle with both teams still in the race for Europa League qualification. But I believe Getafe will be pumped up for this game after losing three games on the trot against Girona. They have the form on their side and a brilliant home record and a stellar defense to go with it. Therefore, my money is on a home win in this potential low scoring affair.
