Getafe vs Leganes
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 30 March 2019
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Getafe’s seven-game unbeaten streak since late January and their Copa del Rey exit in the hands of Valencia now sees them sitting 4th placed, as they host Leganes for their Matchday 29 clash in the hope they can build on it in front of the home crowd. They’ve been furious at Coliseum Alfonso Perez and earned nine wins in ten outings with just a loss to Barcelona along the way, which should Jose Bordalas’ men in great spirits.
Leganes have seen an underwhelming streak in March and they’ve only bounced back from a two-game losing streak with an unconvincing friendly win over Rayo Majadahonda, after seeing very narrow losses to Atletico Madrid and Girona. They’ve been solid defensively but struggle to impress up front, which promises a narrow contest but makes it hard to believe in an upset in Getafe – after five losses in six trips for Mauricio Pellegrino and his men in 2019.
Getafe vs Leganes: Head-to-head
Getafe snatched an important point at Estadio Municipal de Butarque earlier this term with a single goal from Leandro Cabrera.
This was the sides’ third draw in four head-to-head clashes.
We have seen some very narrow occasions between the sides lately and just two goals in two clashes in 2018.
Lega last snatched a win at this ground in 2003, bagging a convincing 0-3 win in Segunda Division.
Getafe vs Leganes: Prediction
Getafe have enjoyed very narrow occasions as they successfully turned clashes against Celta, Rayo Vallecano, and Huesca their way. We now expect another such occasion and we’ll back the home side to bag the points once again as we go for a Home win at the odds of 1.90, which looks great value at this point.
We have seen Lega struggling to score away goals on the regular, though, and we don’t expect them to make it on the scoresheet now either. We thus also hope for a low-scoring occasion and back Getafe to keep a clean sheet at 1.83, hoping to see the visitors’ woes in the final third continue and yet another similar occasion at Alfonso Perez in a row.
