Valladolid vs Getafe
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 14 April 2019
Kick-Off 11:00 UK / 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla (Valladolid).
Teams with completely different ambitions will raise the curtain on an interesting La Liga day on Sunday morning when Valladolid host Getafe at Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla. The hosts will be desperate to end a two-loss streak and claim salvation points, but they’ll face hard times doing so against the most pleasant surprise of the entire season in the top flight of Spanish football.
Pucela struggled for creativity in the final third in past two weeks. They fell 1-0 at Leganes and 0-2 at home to Sevilla in last two rounds. The team led by Sergio Gonzalez now sit right on the brink of the red zone, level on points with 18th-placed Villarreal.
With just seven games left to play, we do not even have to mention how important this tie with Getafe is for Valladolid.
Valladolid vs Getafe: Head-to-head
Pucela will be looking to make it all square at 6 wins each in their head to head record against Azulones with a victory here.
Only one of past seven head to head encounters saw three or more goals scored.
Teams met each other in the last 16 round of Copa del Rey in January this year when Getafe advanced 2-1 on aggregate thanks to a narrow 1-0 victory in the first leg on the home patch.
We have to say Valladolid were historically much more successful in H2H games at Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla where they won 4, drew 3 and lost only 1 of 8 meetings with Azulones.
Valladolid vs Getafe: Prediction
Getafe kept the fourth place in the league standings thanks to a super important 1-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao at home last weekend. It ended team’s three-game winless streak and served as a massive confidence-booster ahead of the final part of the season.
Both teams found it tough to produce goals lately. The visitors scored just one in past four league outings, while Valladolid failed to find the back of the net in last two La Liga affairs. Only one of past seven head to head encounters also saw three or more goals scored which is why we see the Under 2.5 goals FT as a banker bet at the odds of 1.44.
Valladolid vs Getafe: Bet Tips
Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.44 (4/9)
