Levante vs Getafe
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 2 February 2019
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ciudad de Valencia (Valencia).
Getafe will be hoping to recover from a devastating Cop del Rey elimination as they travel to Valencia to take on Levante in the first game of Saturday’s La Liga schedule.
The Azulones brought a 1-0 advantage to the second leg of the cup quarter-final against Valencia. They got off to a dream start at Mestalla after Jorge Molina bagged a 1st-minute opener. They had a 1-1 draw all up until the second minute of added time when Rodrigo completed a brace within two minutes to send the Bats into the semi-final 3-2 on aggregate.
Getafe previously ended a five-game unbeaten run losing 2-0 to Atletico Madrid last weekend away at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
Can the manager Jose Bordalas find the way to raise the spirits inside the dressing room ahead of this fixture with the Frogs?
Levante vs Getafe: Head-to-head
Levante were a tricky opposition to Getafe in the last couple of years.
Azulones failed to find the back of the net in last two narrow 0-1 losses to the Frogs.
None of past five head to head games between these two likes saw three or more goals scored.
As many as 9 of 16 H2H matches between the two sides at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia ended without a winner.
Levante vs Getafe: Prediction
The hosts won’t come into the match in higher spirits either. They suffered a tough 5-0 defeat to Sevilla away at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the previous round.
Interestingly, the Frogs held Los Rojiblancos to a goalless draw in the first half, but allowed five goals after the interval. It was the third defeat in last four matches for the team led by Paco Lopez.
The draw somehow looks to be the closest of three outcomes based on everything written above, both the H2H tradition and the fact Getafe drew 6 of 11 away matches in the league this term make us go for the no winner scenario at the odds of 3.20.
