Girona vs Getafe
Spanish La Liga
Date: Friday, 21 December 2018
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Estadi Municipal de Montilivi (Girona).
Getafe moved up to 7th in La Liga ladder after beating Real Sociedad 1-0 at home last Saturday. Azulones thus continued their fine spell of form making it three wins and two draws in their five-game unbeaten run in all competitions. Can they keep it going on Friday away at Girona in the first match of the 17th round in Primera Division?
The rock-solid defense was the main catalyst for Azulones’ success of late. The team allowed only two goals in last four outings. They’ve been consistent at the back since the very start of the season actually. It is interesting to note that Getafe lost only one of eight away fixtures in the league so far. They shipped just eight goals in the process even though they played the likes of Real Madrid, Sevilla and Celta Vigo among others on travels so far. It was their top scorer Jorge Molina who made the difference bagging the third-minute goal in the previous round against Sociedad.
Girona vs Getafe: Head-to-head
The head to head record fancies Girona here.
Blanquivermell won three, drew two and lost just one of six encounters with Getafe.
Girona took four points from two H2H games with Azulones in the previous term of Primera Division (1-1 and 1-0).
Girona won two and drew one of three home meetings with Getafe.
Girona vs Getafe: Prediction
The hosts will be anything but naïve rivals to Getafe here in spite of the fact they head into the game off the back of two straight defeats. Eusebio Sacristian’s men failed to find the back of the net against the likes of Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla. They are, however, unbeaten in past four matches on the home patch across competitions. They shipped only two goals in past three home ties in the league.
Girona’s latest affairs were short on goalmouth action and since they are up against the stern defense of Getafe’s here, we have to go for the Under 2.5 goals FT as the main betting option. The odds are set at 1.50.
