Getafe News and Form

Getafe have suffered defeats in two of their last three league fixtures. Both of those defeats were away from home though. Their home form remains good. They are now undefeated in their last four league home games, winning three of those four. So their home form is shaping up well for this final game of the season.

The home form of Getafe this season is W11 D2 L5. Of the five home defeats which they have taken, three of them have been against the current top four sides. Each of their last three home wins have been by a clean sheet and they have so good at the back.

Getafe have only shipped 11 home fixtures this season, which is an average of just 0.6 per game. That’s a fine home defensive record. They have picked up a clean sheet in just over half of their home games and only 39% of their home games have ended up over 2.5 goals.

Villarreal News and Form

Villarreal have produced a nice bit of form at the end of the season to get themselves safe. So they can relax for this final game. They have picked up a win in four of their last six games (D1 L1) so it’s been a good response from them to get away from relegation. Villarreal have only suffered the two losses in their last eight games.

Their away record for the season is W5 D5 L8 and they have averaged just a tiny shade over a goal per road games this season. There has been a clean sheet from Villarreal in 44% of their away games. Given their defensive strengths too, this may not end up being a high scoring fixture.

There has been a clean sheet from Villarreal in two of their last three on the road. In their last five league games away from home, they have gone W2 L3. Villarreal have hit the back of the net in each of their last six away games, scoring in each of their last twelve played, home and away.

They have been level at half time in 10 of their 18 road fixtures for the season. They have conceded a total of 62% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures. Across the last eight rounds of league action, only four teams have earned more points than Villarreal have done.
