Getafe vs Granada
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Thursday, 31 October 2019
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
The surprise-toppers of the La Liga will have their mettle tested this weekend, as they are on the road against one of the best teams of the preceding season. Getafe had been going admirably well all through the last campaign, and really were in sights of a Champions League spot. Unfortunately, in the very last match-day, they had to settle for a Europa ticket.
Still, they are one of the prime members of the league at the moment, and on the other hand, their opposite number was not even present in the competition in 2018-19, as they were busy with their schedule in the Segunda.
Getafe vs Granada Head-to-head (h2h)
- The previous three official games ended in wins for the Nasrids.
- The preceding five official encounters had goals at either end of the pitch.
- It’s been six years since Jose Bordalas’s men have won against this opponent.
- Since 2011, only one clash at the venue has ended without satisfying the BTTS clause.
- The visitors scored twice or more in their last four trips to the stadium.
Getafe vs Granada Prediction
Despite their top-most positioning, Diego Martinez’s men are still not equipped to deal with the intense pressure that the Spanish top-flight can provide. Moreover, if the Clasico had not been postponed, the squad even might not have claimed the pinnacle for themselves.
Importantly, they lack the experience factor, which the hosts of the day have in abundance, and obviously the advantage due to playing in front of their own fans. Moreover, Bordalas’s men have lost just four times in total at this venue in 2019, and two of those were against Barcelona, and one was in the Europa League.
Keep note that they also had a long six-game winning run in the process as well.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in eight of their twelve road trips, and this further justifies backing a greater performance by the hosts this Thursday. Still, to be on the safe side, we’ll opt for the DNB on the home team.
However, the guests will be desperate to hold on to the top-most spot, and we can expect them to sweat it out on the pitch to attain that objective. Also, recent h2h clashes have been majorly in favor of the same team too.
These observations hugely suggest that backing the BTTS option has a great value this Thursday.
