Villarreal vs Getafe Match Preview
Getafe are in revenge-mode this season. Last time around, they were in contention for a Champions League spot till the very last match-day, but missed out on it to Valencia.
As of now, Getafe are placed above the likes of Atleti, and are lagging behind leaders Barcelona by just six points. Also keep note that all three teams above Getafe in the table are winless in their respective last two league games, while they are on a six-match winning run in all competitions.
Suffice it to say, La Liga fans should expect great things from the team this season.
Villarreal vs Getafe Prediction
Villarreal were on the road the last game week in the La Liga, and they had taken on tough customers Sevilla. Still, the team held on to record a narrow win of 1-2.
In the meantime, Getafe kept their winning streak going on in their latest league battle. Aided with the home advantage, they cruised to a 2-0 victory over Valladolid.
This weekend, recent form emerges as the major pointer in determining the impending outcome of the game. Getafe have won their previous six fixtures on the trot, and are unbeaten in their last eight.
Do keep note that the stretch of games even included difficult Europa League fixtures. In fact, this whole season, other than in the EL, Getafe have lost against Just Barcelona, Atleti, and Sevilla – all titans of the Spanish top flight.
Furthermore, the team has also conceded just a single goal from the prior six matches combined, and just two from the last eight.
Going on, they were unbeaten in 13 of their last 16 on the road, and are on a winning run of three games in the previous three road trips. And impressively, they have failed to score away from home just against Sevilla, and Atleti this whole 2019-20.
On the other hand, Villarreal were winless in six of their former eight overall match-ups, and one of the very few wins in the process had come in the Copa del Rey against minnows. They also had a three-match losing run in the midst of this stretch.
Finally, while Villarreal are usually tough contenders at home, they have been misfiring these days at the Estadio de la Ceramica. In fact, they are winless in their prior three appearances here, and have scored just a single goal in the process.
Likely, count on them to come up short against the in-form visitors, and as such, a bet favoring Getafe should bring good returns this Saturday.
