Getafe vs Real Valladolid
Spain – Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 9th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Both Getafe and Valladolid come into this fixture after facing losses in their respective league games. The Deep Blues may have much of an actual excuse, as their match was against the defending champions, FC Barcelona. Real has no such thing to claim in Rayo Vallecano.
El Geta will be proud of their pressing and especially their strike partners, as they managed to score against the Blaugrana, who were on a string of matches with clean sheets. The match was a close one, and at one point, the team really threatened as if to equalize and share the spoils.
The Pucelle lost at home, against the 19th placed team in the league. And consequentially, their morale has been hit.

Getafe vs Real Valladolid Prediction
Bordalas’s men are extremely hard to play at home. They press continuously, pounce on mistakes, and punish them with ruthlessness. Their front line has amazing chemistry between them and plays unselfishly. Real, one of the teams with the worst away records will suffer against Getafe.
Valladolid has conceded in their last five away games in a row and was winless in seven of their last nine overall fixtures. El Geta, which has exponentially improved themselves compared to last season, will want to progress deep into the Copa.
They will take full advantage of their home crowd in the first leg and try to get a huge score. Also, Getafe will rely on their excellent defense to not to concede and probably keep a clean sheet.
The hosts will not want to deal with pressure late into the match, and as we have seen all through this season – against weaker teams, Getafe will try to get the upper hand earlier itself. Expect a first-half goal by the home team.
