Valencia vs Getafe
Spanish La Liga
Date: 18th April 2018, Wednesday
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de Mestalla (Valencia).
Valencia’s emphatic run come to an end with the 2-1 defeat at Barcelona on the weekend. Yet, no damage is done to their top four finishing chances with fifth placed Real Betis 13 points away.
The previous weeks saw them on a 9 match unbeaten streak with 8 wins and a draw. Moreover, the home record look strong as ever having bagged 38 points from their 16 matches. This is expected to continue as they host the likes of Eibar and Deportivo La Coruna after Getafe’s visit to the Mestalla. So, all they need to do is ensure maximum points from the remaining three home matches to book the ticket to the Champions League next season.
This has been a good campaign for Getafe as they are 10th in the table in the first season after promotion. The success is built on a strong home record and they are ranked 5th in the home table. However, they are totally opposite on the road.
Getafe have managed just 2 wins from their 16 away games so far this season, drawn 6 and lost 7. Also, they struggled for goals and average a humble 0.73 goals per game. The defense is not bad though after conceding at the rate of 1.2 goal per game. But the cumulative figures explains the reasons for poor results on the road.
