Getafe vs Sevilla Match Preview
Getafe had their four-match winning streak in the LaLiga brought to an abrupt halt by the Catalans who edged past them at Camp Nou with a narrow 2-1 scoreline. Despite pulling a goal back post the restart, the hosts failed to find a timely equalizer and subsequently made the trip back home empty-handed.
Nevertheless, the home team are still sitting third on the ladder ten points behind second-placed Barcelona and two ahead of Atletico Madrid who are fourth.
On the other hand, Sevilla are at present level on points with Atletico Madrid in the table and are fifth only on goal difference. The visitors, however, have been hit by a sharp decline in form. Miserably, the guests are without a win in their last three games on the trot, the most recent of which saw them held to a 2-2 draw by Espanyol.
It is also worth mentioning that Sevilla have just one win under their belt from their past five matchups. As such, a defeat this week could potentially jeopardize their hopes of staying in the top five, as Villarreal and Valencia are breathing down their neck.
Getafe vs Sevilla Prediction
Getafe have been a force to reckon with on home soil, and have picked up the win, more often than not, here this season. In fact, the only two defeats that they have succumbed to so far have come against the mighty Los Blancos, and the Catalans respectively.
Impressively, the hosts are also on a two-match winning streak in front of the home crowd, as we speak. In sharp contrast, Sevilla have been struggling to come out on top in their recent outings. Disappointingly, the visitors have been at the losing end in each of their past two trips on the road.
Taking into account that the guests have also tasted success just once in their previous ten visits here, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Getafe this weekend.
Be that as it may, Sevilla are sporting the second-best away statistics on the ladder. They have also shared the spoils on two occasions so far away from home. Given that the hosts have also been held to a draw three times here already, it will be safer to back a draw no bet.
Furthermore, to be frank the visitors have been adamant in their outings. They have consistently found the back of the net in each of their last five clashes on the road in all competitions.
Considering that guests have also had their names on the scoresheet in all but one of their past four trips here, count on neither side to keep a clean sheet intact come Sunday.
