Getafe Preview – Can Getafe continue their fairtyale and make it three straight wins in Europa League?

It may be their first taste of the Europa League in nearly a decade but Getfafe are showing no signs of inexperience. Having narrowly missed out qualifying for the Champions League via their domestic league last season, the Madrid-based club are certainly making the most of this European adventure. Coach Jose Bordalas has done an excellent job in his time in charge and he will be looking to continue what has been an excellent start. A 1-0 win at home to Trabzonspor followed by an excellent 2-1 success in Russia against Krasnodar. Those wins put them top and a couple of points clear of their next opponents. The La Liga club well then travel to Switzerland in a fortnight for the return game.

1-1 Correct Score

Basel Preview – Will Basel’s free scoring attack prove to be the difference and take them top of the group?

Unlike their opponents on Thursday, Basel are regular participants in European competition and they will be hoping they can make that experience count over these next couple of games. Currently top of their domestic league, Basel only dropped into the Europa League having been eliminated from Champions League qualification earlier in the campaign. They, too, are still unbeaten after two games but with four points to show. Basel thumped Krasnodar 5-0 at home in their opening group game before an entertaining 2-2 draw in Turkey against Trabzonspor. Whilst they would like to be top, Marcelo Koller will be happy enough with his team’s start. He will be even happier should they take any points from this game and head back home with a chance to take control of the section.

Getafe v Basel Betting Advice

These two teams have not only started well in this competition but are also going strong in their domestic leagues. As things stand it looks as though they are well placed to finish in the top two places but there’s still a lot of football to be played. If there is a winner in this match it puts that team in a really strong position and that should be enough motivation for both.
Getafe have been extremely good at home in 2019 and have lost just three times this calendar year – two of those being against Barcelona. Basel are yet to win in any of their three away games in European competition so far this season, losing both qualifiers in the Champions League. It will be a big ask for them to get a win here but they do carry a threat going forward which Getafe have to be wary of. Seven of Basel’s last 10 away matches have seen both teams scoring and that’s the selection for this match.
