Getafe vs Mallorca predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as the hosts look to build on Thursday night’s victory in Europe.
Getafe vs Mallorca Preview
Getafe are in action at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez for the second time in four days this Sunday as they play host to Mallorca in La Liga. The hosts picked up their first victory of the new campaign on Thursday night as they saw off Trabzonspor in the Europa League with something of a trademark 1-0 victory. This will be a different kind of test against a Mallorca side that has made a mixed start to life back at this level.
The hosts are likely to make many changes from their Thursday night team. José Bordalás made quite a big statement by the sheer number of alterations he made in midweek which suggests that La Liga will remain a priority. However with quite an old squad, it was no surprise to see the likes of Jaime Mata and Jorge Molina rested as Angel and Enric Gallego formed the strike pairing against the Turks.
What Mallorca would give to have any of those strikers in their ranks. They’ve impressed with some of their football so far but last Friday’s 0-0 draw with Athletic almost summed up their season as they spurned a host of good chances to win the game before very nearly losing it at the death. They’ve only scored two goals so far this term, both on the opening day and one of those was an own goal.
Clearly they will need to be more clinical but they are at least creating chances and Vicente Moreno will take encouragement from that. Chances are normally few and far between for visiting teams in Getafe but there is some pressure on the hosts who are down in 18th and yet to win in La Liga this term.
Getafe vs Mallorca Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Getafe
Getafe have taken a bit of a while to get going this season but on paper they have a stronger squad than last season and the fact they rested lots of players in Europe, suggests they should be relatively fresh here. With Mata and Molina to come back in, they have should have enough firepower to see off Mallorca and even if the visitors manage to be competitive in the game as a whole, it’s the hosts who look much more likely to finish off any chances that crop up.
