Getafe Prediction

Getafe currently occupy 5th place on the La Liga ladder but are just one point behind 4th placed Sevilla so they stand a very good chance of converting their existing Europa League berth into an automatic Champions League spot if they can achieve a top four finish at the end of the season.

Plenty of incentive then for Getafe to continue getting results, and having lost just once in their last six matches overall in La Liga, which was a 2-0 loss away form home at Atletico Madrid, the hosts look to be in a good position to add to their points tally on Saturday night.

Recent wins against Villarreal, Deportivo Alaves and Celta Vigo along with points picked up away at Levante and Eibar have kept their momentum going, and they now return to their Coliseum Alfonso Pérez for this evening’s clash with lowly Rayo Vallecano.

Getafe possess a home record of 6-1-4 16/7 but results have picked up recently for the hosts as they’ve won four of their last five at home, along with keeping 6 clean sheets from their 11 home matches to date.


Key-Facts – Getafe v Rayo Vallecano

  • Getafe have won 4 of their last 5 matches at home in La Liga
  • Getafe have kept 6 clean sheets from their 11 home matches this season
  • Rayo Vallecano have lost 5 of their last 8 away from home in La Liga


Rayo Vallecano Prediction

Rayo Vallecano occupy second from bottom in La Liga after they slumped to a third league defeat on the trot in the Spanish top flight when they lost 1-0 at home to Atletico Madrid, which followed previous back-to-back defeats to Leganes and Espanyol.

Rayo Vallecano had previously strung together a promising five match run without defeat as they’ve gained wins over Levante, Real Valladolid, Celta Vigo and Deportivo Alaves along with a draw with Real Sociedad, but these three recent defeats have plunged them back into the relegation zone.

The visitors possess a pretty ordinary looking away record of 3-1-7 7/14 which includes five defeats from their last eight matches on their travels as scoring goals has been a real problem for the visitors this term; Rayo Vallecano have failed to hit the back of the net in 5 of their 11 away matches so far this season.

Betting Tips Verdict

Getafe know that all three points here would keep them firmly in the race for a top four finish and the financially lucrative spot in the Champions League while Rayo Vallecano probably need to score first to have any realistic chance of an upset here.
