Getafe vs Granada predictions, H2H and match preview for this Thursday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as the visitors aim to continue their stunning start to the season.
Getafe vs Granada Preview
The midweek action in La Liga concludes on Thursday night in Madrid. Granada headed into matchday 11 on top of the table but they most likely will have been dethroned by the time this one kicks off. They face a Getafe side who have provided the blueprint for newly promoted teams in the Spanish top flight and they’ll be hungry to bring the Andalusians back down to Earth here.
Getafe have the feel of a team that is struggling a bit to live up to the extremely high standard they set last season. The added distraction of European football football has also been perhaps a factor in a slightly below par start in La Liga but they remain safely positioned in mid-table. What will be frustrating Jose Bordalas more than anything is that they’ve been leaking more goals this term with only one clean sheet in ten league matches so far, a huge decline from last term.
Granada meanwhile must think they are in dreamland. Their 1-0 win over Real Betis on Sunday sent them to the top of La Liga for the very first time in the club’s history. Incredibly they’ve already matched their points tally from the entire 2016/17 season when they were relegated from La Liga with only 20 points.
On paper, they don’t really have the kind of quality that suggests they are going to hang around in the top six for the duration of the season but defensively they look organised and the likes of Antonio Puertas and Alvaro Vadillo are providing enough in the final third to suggest they will at the very least continue to be competitive.
Getafe vs Granada Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Getafe
Getafe are getting used to playing on Thursday nights and their squad has a bit more depth to it this season which should aid them in a situation like this playing midweek games. You sense Getafe are the kind of side who will really relish the challenge of knocking Granada off their perch and they might just have the edge here.
