Sevilla vs Getafe predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as Julen Lopetegui’s side aim to build on last weekend’s home win with another here.
Sevilla vs Getafe Preview
This game features the sides that finished in 5th and 6th last season. Sevilla will be expected to finish above Getafe this term but they were beaten by an aggregate score of 5-0 in their two meetings with the South Madrid side last season. That should give Getafe some confidence heading into this one but they’ve not been quite as assured this term to date.
Sevilla have been a bit hit and miss too. They responded pretty well to a heavy defeat at Barcelona prior to the international break at least with a hard-fought 1-0 win against Levante last weekend prior to an easy Europa League victory against Dudelange. Significantly Luuk de Jong broke his duck for the club last Sunday after a torrid start to his career with the Andalusians. His goal was actually the first scored by a Sevilla striker this season in La Liga.
As for Getafe, it’s Angel who is currently their form forward player. The 32 year old has bagged 7 goals in all competitions already this term but couldn’t find the target in a frustrating 1-0 home defeat against Basel in the Europa League on Thursday. Jose Bordalas’ side are still pretty well placed to progress in that competition though and victory here would move them level on points with their opponents who are currently 6th.
With both sides having played 72 hours ago and with a full midweek fixture list coming up, both coaches may rotate his troops but this is a significant game with both sides likely to be at least in the mix when it comes to finishing in the top six this time around.
Sevilla vs Getafe Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-0 Sevilla
Getafe may have edged these meetings last term but they’ve not been quite so convincing defensively this term and the added toll of European football is likely to have a bigger impact on them than Sevilla who have greater strength in depth. Sevilla had a decent warm-up for this game last weekend as they showed great patience to finally find a late breakthrough to beat Levante 1-0 and a similar kind of match could be on the cards here.
