One more defeat and Pucela will spiral downward to the relegation zone.


After finishing in the 14th spot last season, the club barely showed any improvements. It lost 2 of its most recent matches and is in dire need of clinching a victory.


Pucela started the season with a 2-1 defeat against Athletic Bilbao. The squad tried to seek redemption against Villareal. However, the latter made a late comeback, which turned the odds into their favor.


Juan Ignacio Martinez and his squad has another opportunity to get out of the bottom pit as they face Getafe. However, a cloud of doubt looms, as it is still uncertain if its star player, Patrick Ebert can make it to the pitch.



Like Real Valladolid, the Azulones are also on the verge of seeing themselves in the relegation zone. Nevertheless, they have a better chance to move out of the table after forcing a draw against Almeria. But still, the squad needs a victory if they want to have a strong finish.


Yet, just when everything seems to work according to plan, the club  is uncertain if striker, Álvaro Vázquez will continue to play for them. Reports said the young player is about to finalize its transfer to the Premier League’s Swansea.


Online betting tip: Getafe to win by a single goal

There is a high possibility of Getafe going home as the match’s victor. A late rally can be also expected just in case Valladolid dominates the first half.


A closer look at the club’s last 2 matches revealed Getafe taking more shots and creating more scoring opportunities than Valladolid and now that Ebert’s condition is still, uncertain, the harder it is for the club to snatch their first win.
