Sevilla vs Getafe
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 16 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan (Sevilla).
Sevilla will be looking to rebound from the loss to bitter rivals Betis in the city derby in the previous round.
The Andalucian outfit have a nice chance to return on the winning ways in the last game of Sunday’s Primera Division program as the likes of Getafe come to visit Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Nevertheless, the hosts will have to produce a strong performance to secure the spoils here given that Azulones were quite tight at the back in opening three games of the new season.
Jose Bordalas’ 4-4-2 formation did well so far, allowing just two goals in three matches in spite of a tough schedule and the clash with Real Madrid on the opening day.
The attacking line could have done better, though, as Getafe did little to harm the likes of Valladolid in what ended in a goalless draw at Coliseum Alfonso Perez before the international break.
Sevilla vs Getafe: Head-to-head
- Sevilla have an impressive record in home matches against Azulones.
- Los Rojiblancos won 10, drew 3 and lost 3 of 16 encounters with Getafe at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
- None of last three head to head affairs produced three or more goals.
- Los Rojiblancos took four points from last term meetings with Getafe, conceding only a single goal along the way.
Sevilla vs Getafe: Prediction
Sevilla may have struggled to create in the final third in last two league ties against Villarreal and Betis, but their defensive line did well in all of three games so far.
The team led by Pablo machine allowed only two goals in three matches and we have to recognize the value in backing the hosts to keep things tight at the back here at the 2.10 odds.
Machin also has deadly weapons in the final third in his ranks. The most recent acquisition Quincy Promes made his Sevilla debut coming on from the bench last time out against Betis and he could also get some minutes here against Azulones.
The quality is no doubts on Sevilla’s side and we see the home win as a banker bet at 1.53 odds here.
