Sevilla FC vs Getafe Preview

Sevilla FC vs Getafe

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

Date: 16th September 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Sevilla played so many games when the season began because of their involvement in European football and they should be happy for the international break that gave them a breather, but playing Getafe will not be easy, regardless.

Getafe are looking to replicate their impressive form from last season when they missed out on European football narrowly to their hosts.

They have added more depth to this squad in the transfer window, and that has given their manager more selection headaches however it is a good problem to have as a manager.

The visitors have collected 4 points from their opening 3 games and that points total isn’t bad considering that they have already played Real Madrid so they will be looking to shock Sevilla here.

Sevilla have also collected 4 points from their opening 3 games.

They would have had more points had it not been for a controversial loss in their last league game against Real Betis.

That loss was their first major setback and their fans would be expecting them to bounce back in this game.

Sevilla have had a good season with smooth passage into the Europa League group stage as well, but this game should be tough for them.

Getafe had the third best defence in the league last season, and they have not changed their approach – that can be understood more when you consider that there has been a total of just 4 goals scored in their last three games, and their last 12 league games have ended in under 2.5 goals.

Despite Getafe’s excellent defencive record, bookmakers make Sevilla strong odds-on favourites to get the job done here.

Betting markets suggest there could be goals as over 2.5 goals is currently a shade odds-on.
