Villarreal vs Getafe
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 25 February 2018
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villarreal).
Villarreal have ended their Europa League journey losing both of their R32 ties with Olympique Lyon and they can now focus entirely on Primera Division success until the end of the season. Nonetheless, things did not look good for the Yellow Submarine in domestic affairs of late since they’ve picked up only a single point in last three Primera Division outings. Given that the opposition included the likes of Real Betis, Deportivo Alaves and Espanyol, we can say it has been a bitterly disappointing return for Javi Calleja and his men.
Such poor run of form has seriously halted Villarreal’s push for the Champions League football next term and the hosts now trail eight points behind the fourth-placed Valencia. Can they arrest the current slump on Sunday when their early game at noon sees them host Getafe in the 25th round of the competition?
Azulones are undefeated in last six league matches and they have kept their net untouched in all of last three games in La Liga. This streak has helped Jose Bordalas’ men break into the top half of the standings and Getafe are now actually just five points shy of their counterparts ahead of the match at Estadio de la Ceramica.
Villarreal vs Getafe: Head-to-head
Villarreal have been much more successful over the course of history winning 16 of 27 encounters with Azulones.
Nonetheless, Getafe have picked up a demolishing 4-0 victory at their Coliseum Alfonso Perez when the two teams met in this term of Primera Division.
St home, Villarreal have won 10 and lost only 2 of 13 matches against Getafe.
Villarreal vs Getafe: Prediction
Azulones may have shown improvements in their game lately, but they remain harmless on travels being winless in last nine league affairs on the road in this term.
Given that Villarreal have won two of last three games in La Liga at Estadio de la Ceramica, we believe the hosts will be able to return on the winning ways here.
