Getafe vs Levante
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 6 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:15 UK / 16:15 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Levante ended the three-loss streak by beating Deportivo Alaves 2-1 at home last weekend. The win helped them move away from the danger area. It certainly boosted up team’s confidence ahead of this Saturday’s trip to Coliseum Alfonso Perez where the Frogs are set to take on Getafe in the eighth round of La Liga.
Azulones are looking for their first win in four games here. They drew away at Alaves and Celta Vigo in last two rounds. Such results followed the 0-2 loss to Atletico Madrid in front of the home crowd.
However, Getafe have to be seen as clear favourites on paper here based on their fine and consistent form at Coliseum Alfonso Perez. They shipped no goals in opening two league games at home against Eibar and Real Valladolid. We won’t take the mentioned defeat to Atletico Madrid as a big failure given Levante are at least two levels below the Mattressers.
Getafe vs Levante: Head-to-head
The draw has been the most common of the outcomes in the history of head to head matches between these two likes.
It happened 13 times in 32 games.
Getafe have the chance to move level on number of wins with the Frogs with a three-pointer here.
None of last four head to head encounters saw three or more goals scored.
Getafe vs Levante: Prediction
Levante have been struggling badly ever since the opening round win to Real Betis at Benito Villamarin. They went on to lose four and draw one of following five league matches proving out to be very easy to break down in the process.
The Frogs have the second weakest defensive record in the league with 14 goals conceded in seven games so far (two per game). Getafe have been much more consistent at the start of the season, they’ll have the home court advantage, and we can hardly skip the home win pick at 1.75 odds here.
The alternative bet would be Azulones to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.37.
