GETAFE VS ESPANYOL PREVIEW & PREDICTION
There is no clear favorite on this occasion, since the two teams are even and irregular in many ways. For this reason and knowing that the “blues” with combative and tactical in their stadium, we believe that an equality is the most interesting result to bet. Remember that the “parakeets” know how to stand as visitors thanks to their collective order and the good standing of their players.
The “azul” lost 2-0 to Alavés as visitors, staying with 39 units in total. The team has lowered its performance too much during the last weeks, after losing 4 of its last 5 presentations (2 consecutive). Of course, despite everything, it is still a tactical and combative eleven between the lines. Your goal will be to cut the losing streak for a matter of honor, as it is far from relegation and qualify for the next Europa League.
As a local, Getafe has added acceptable results, despite some missteps suffered throughout the season (8 wins, 3 draws and 5 falls, scoring 24 goals and conceding 11 in their goal). It comes from thrashing Celta 3-0, to crush Deportivo 3-0, to lose 0-1 with Levante and stumble 0-1 against Betis.
The “parakeets” visited Valencia at Mestalla and lost 1-0 in a game that was quite fought. They remained with 36 points in the general table, alternating good and bad results without reaching the expected regularity. It is still an eleven of good standing but too unstable when defending. Therefore, it is not surprising that it costs you to win 2 or more matches consecutively.
Far from home, Espanyol has registered several markers, after winning 1 match, equaling another 7 and losing the remaining 7 that played in this condition (11 goals scored and 25 received against). His last outings were the following: Draw 2-2 with Celta, equality 0-0 with Deportivo, parity 1-1 against Levante, defeat 3-0 with Betis and 1-0 loss against Valencia.
“Azules” and “periquitos” met a few months ago and the score was favorable for Espanyol at home (1-0 in November 2017). At the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, Getafe has won the last two games he played against the Catalans (2-1 in February 2015 and 3-1 in January 2016).
PREDICTION: Over 1.5 goals @ 1.54
