Getafe vs Valencia Preview

 

Getafe vs Valencia

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Coliseum Alfonso Perez

Date: 3rd December 2017

Kick-off time – 15:15 GMT

Whether Valencia enhanced their title potential by their 1-1 draw with Barcelona last time out is debatable, but they surely proved at the end of the day that they can match the very best in the league.

They could have won that game but for a late equaliser from the league’s leaders.

They now face another tough test as Getafe has been impressing this season too.

Valencia’s current form makes them favourites in this encounter.

Not playing in Europe is also an advantage for Valencia as it allows them to focus strictly on the league and their Copa del Rey matches.

They have a solid midfield and Rodrigo is doing a particularly good job up front – he has scored 8 goals in his last 10 league games.

Getafe has been impressive in their own small way especially when they play at home.

They lost narrowly to Barcelona and Real Madrid at home but they were very impressive in those games before losing 2-1 each time.

They have scored an average of 2 goals per home game in the league this season which is a solid return.

Getafe have a particularly poor record against Valencia at home as they have lost 4 of their last 6 home games against Valencia.
