Getafe vs Athletic Bilbao Preview

 

Getafe vs Athletic Bilbao

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Coliseum Alfonso Perez

Date: 19th January 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Getafe have surprised many fans and observers of La Liga this season for a team that has just been promoted to the top flight.

They come into this game ahead of Athletic Bilbao by one point and they are both part of a very congested mid table.

Their standings in the table means these sides should have less worry about relegation and their recent form has been encouraging.

If Getafe succeeds in winning here, they would climb their way up to 6th position in the league table and that should motivate the Madrid based side to go for the three points here.

They have one of the best home records in the league with 60% of their home games ending in victory.

They have also netted 1.9 goals per home game this season which is a record bettered only by three other teams.

Bilbao should be the favourites here but the Basque side have struggled to impress at times this season.

They have the 7th worst goal scoring record in La Liga with just 1.11 goal scored on average per game.

They have just one loss in their last 11 games but they won as many games as they drew in that period of time.

They drew their first meeting 0:0 this season but Athletic have won the previous 6 prior to that.
