Getafe-Luis Garcia

Getafe shall face a determined Valladolid at Alfonso Perez. Though they are still pegged as the match’s online bookie favorite, they cannot be too complacent as their opponent is eager to survive this season. 

Match Date: 01 February 2014 (local time)

Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez


Team Form


Luis Garcia lamented on Getafe’s narrow defeat to Almeria. The club’s head honcho stated that luck has evaded them after enduring a crucial decision from the linesman and failing to score.


Getafe is still far from the relegation zone, but Garcia’s sentiments have their own merits. It was their fifth defeat during their last six (6) matches, thus, drawing questions to their form. Throughout the course of their recent encounters, their best performance so far, was a draw, which is barely enough to improve their rank in Spain’s top-flight league. It must be also noted that Getafe has failed to score in three (3) of their recent battles. These are against Sevilla, the minnows, Rayo Vallecano and of course, against Almeria.


Real Valladolid

Real Valladolid’s victory against Villarreal gained a total boost to their morale as their chances of surviving this season becomes more evident.


With the said triumph, Valladolid is just two (2) points away from the relegation zone. Meeting a devastated Getafe works well to their favor for this might help them improve their rank. Valladolid’s team form is not that impressive, but certainly, it is much better than Getafe since they have two (2) victories and a draw to brag.


Online betting’s top pick: Getafe

Despite their poor performance, Getafe remains the dominant side in the match. However, they cannot be too overconfident as Valladolid is also keen on making an impression and surviving this season.
