Valencia vs Getafe
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 17th March 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Estadio de Mestalla (Valencia).
Two in-form teams take on each other, and sparks are sure to fly this Sunday. Competition in the La Liga is getting better as each season passes. The likes of Getafe used to be bottom-dwellers in the past, but now they are a strong presence in the top-six, and maybe even the top-four.
Getafe currently occupies the fourth spot, which ensures a shot at Champions League entry. They also have a four-point lead over the fifth-placed Alaves. But the team has one glaring weakness, and that is their incompetence in away matches.
Valencia is desperate to get back into the playoff mix. They have been on a very good run lately, and they took very good advantage of the shortcomings of Sevilla. Right now, the team is just a single point below Sevilla, and a single point away from the last Europa League position.

Valencia vs Getafe Prediction
Valencia is one of the best in-form teams in the league right now. Doesn’t matter if they are at home, or on the road. But obviously, they are better at home. They are unbeaten in their last 14 games in a row, and at home, they are unbeaten in their last 16 attempts. Going on, they remained unvanquished in 22 of their last 24 home ties.
Getafe may be a high-flying team, but most of their heroics come at home. On the road, they were winless in 11 of their last 15 ties. And importantly, at this venue, Getafe lost their Copa del Rey tie against this opponent for a 3-1 scoreline.
Expect Valencia to win.
But it won’t come easy. Getafe may lack the wins away from home. But their offense still deserves respect. They found the back of the net in 15 of their last 17 away games, and their last five overall matches had goals from both teams. In h2h games at this venue, Getafe found the back of the net in 11 of their last 13 visits.
As such, BTTS offers a great deal of value in return.
