Getafe Preview – Post-lockdown complacency creeping in?

The prospect of playing in next season’s Champions League is dwindling for Getafe (5th – W13 D10 L8). A costly 1-1 draw in Valladolid last time out, in which a lead given to them by forward Jaime Mata was cancelled out within moments following the concession of a penalty, extended the winless run of Jose Bordalas’ team to five games in La Liga. All the while the gap to the top four positions continues to grow.

Fortunately, a small reprieve arrived on Friday as fourth-placed Sevilla dropped points – ironically, to the same Valladolid outfit which took points from them days before. That puts the deficit at five points, which can be reduced to two with victory over seventh-placed Real Sociedad. A team beaten 2-1 in the reverse fixture and against whom Getafe boast successive home wins, having won 1-0 and 2-1 in last two seasons.

However, if recent head-to-head encounters are something from which to garner positivity from, their recent form on the whole certainly isn’t. Despite a kind schedule that seen them face three of the bottom six sides, Getafe are still without a win since the resumption (D3 L1), scoring only three times – albeit conceded just four in return – and drawing all of the last three with Espanyol, Eibar and Valladolid.

Real Sociedad Preview – Goals and points deserting La Real?

If their opponent’s reintroduction to La Liga commitments has been a surprisingly flat and lethargic, then the resumption clearly doesn’t reflect well on Real Sociedad (7th – W14 D5 L12) whose form since the restart is bordering on the disastrous. Head coach Imanal Alguacil overseeing four fixtures thus far, none of which converted into maximum points as their aspirations of competing in next season’s Champions League gradually fade.

La Real find themselves seven points behind fourth place and two worse off than their upcoming opponents, whose victory at Anoeta earlier in the season possibly gives them the edge in this return fixture. Put simply, Real Sociedad need to raise their level of performance here else run the risk of not only succumbing to Getafe twice in the same season but losing further ground in the contest for European places.

It isn’t easy retaining much confidence in a side so woefully out of form, though, but particularly on their travels where they have lost on four of their last five league outings (W1 L4). Moreover, a lack of goals since the break – only two scored in four games, with three opponents ranked in the bottom half of La Liga – only hints at further struggles on Monday, facing one of the leanest defences in Spain this season.

Getafe Vs Real Sociedad Betting Advice

A game of high-intensity is what is expected, in what is a fixture of huge importance within the context of European qualification in La Liga. Fifth place meets the side in seventh, as Getafe and Real Sociedad seek to resuscitate some lifeless form since the restart. Only three teams – Barcelona, Real Madrid and Sevilla – have won at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez in 2019/20, while Getafe were 2-1 victors in the reverse encounter.


Getafe Vs Real Sociedad – Key Facts

  • Neither Getafe (D3 L1) or Real Sociedad (D1 L3) has recorded a win since La Liga returned following an enforced break due to COVID-19.
  • Furthermore, the pair have combined to score only five times across eight La Liga fixtures since the restart.
  • Getafe, who were 2-1 winners in Sociedad when these sides met earlier in the season, have lost only one of the last seven La Liga head-to-heads (W5 D1 L1).


Scoring goals has become a real problem for both sides since returning to La Liga action following the pandemic, netting just five times between them across eight matches. Factor in the pressure both teams are under as well as the importance of this result, and a tetchy, low-scoring affair seems probable. Under 2.5 Goals (8/15 Bet365) is plenty short enough, however, and instead a tentative vote goes the way of the hosts.
