Leganes vs Getafe Preview

Leganes vs Getafe

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Butarque

Date: 7th December 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Most people know about the rivalry between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, but this game is also a big Madrid derby and promises fireworks when these teams take to the field here.

Getafe have been consistently in the top flight and they recorded a victory in this fixture last season.

Getafe will however, face a Leganes side that is beginning to come into their own in the Spanish topflight.

This game is expected to be quite a lively contest as Getafe have made a name for themselves as a team that commits the most fouls in the division since their return, while Maurizio Pellegrino is turning Leganes into a side that will do whatever it takes to get a result.

Leganes come into this game in fine form as they have won their last 3 games in all competitions.

They have been a better side when they play at home and their 4-0 away win in their last game should have boosted their confidence greatly.

Getafe also come into this game in good form and the added incentive of moving above Real Madrid into 5th position should spur them on here.

Getafe have become known for their defensive prowess, but they come into this game having scored 8 times in their last two games which bodes well for them.

This is one of the most competitive betting markets of the weekend as bookmakers make Leganes very slight favourites to come out on top.  A rush of cash could see Getafe go off as favourites however they will have their followers regardless.

Goal markets suggest an extremely low-scoring affair as under 2.5 goals is trading long odds-on prior to kick-off.

Jaime Mata and Rodriguez Angel are joint favourites with bookies to score the first goal closesly followed by Diego Rolan, Guido Carrillo and Youssef En-Nesyri.

This game gets underway at 20:00 BST.
