Getafe vs Valencia Match Preview
Getafe are in fine form at the moment and have been tasting nothing but success in their past three games on the trot. Their most recent clash in the top flight saw them take down Athletic Bilbao on the road with two unanswered goals to their name.
With thirty-nine points in the bag, Getafe are currently in pursuit of second-placed Real Madrid.
On the other hand, Valencia are two points adrift of the hosts at the moment and are on a two-match winning streak of their own as well in the top flight. Be that as it may, it needs saying that the visitors are yet to ensure consistency in their campaign.
They have dropped points in half of their past six matchups, garnering no more than eleven points from a possible eighteen. With both Atletico Madrid and Villarreal close behind them on the table, Valencia cannot afford to stumble in this one.
Getafe vs Valencia Prediction
Getafe have been a force to reckon with on home soil, so far, with their only two defeats here, coming against the mighty Los Blancos and the Catalans respectively. The hosts have also picked up the win in four of their past six matchups here, half of which, have been by a two-goal margin or more.
In sharp contrast, Valencia have been struggling to find their groove on the road. Miserably, the guests have been deprived of a win in their past two outings, and have just three measly wins to boast of away from home as well.
To make matters worse, Valencia have secured the bragging rights just once in their past four visits to this stadium. As such, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Getafe this weekend.
However, the hosts have shared the spoils thrice at home this season. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this encounter had also ended in a tie, back a draw no bet, just to be on the safer side.
Furthermore, Getafe have been too tough to breach here, as of late. They have kept a clean sheet in all but one of their past five matchups on home soil, and have conceded just three goals in the process too.
It is also worth mentioning that all of their previous three h2h meetings here have been low scoring affairs with fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards. Hence, expect goals to be hard to come by this Saturday.
