Getafe vs Osasuna predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as two sides in decent form meet.
Getafe vs Osasuna Preview
This match features a Getafe side that continues to impress, now into their third season back in the top flight. Their opponents are a team that is on the right road to emulating them. Osasuna have set their stall out to be one of the most intense, hardest working teams in La Liga and they’ve shown a fair bit of top flight quality too as they look to reestablish themselves at this level.
Getafe will be the favourites though and they should have plenty of fresh legs having rotated in the Europa League on Thursday. Jose Bordalas has clearly been keen to maintain the league as the main focus of their efforts and that has helped them return 16 points from their last 8 games, the 3rd best record in the division behind Barcelona and Real Madrid. They’ve won 4 of their last 5 in La Liga heading into this match but they have been marginally less convincing defensively this term with just a 17% clean sheet ratio.
Osasuna are in good form too and they set a new club record unbeaten streak at home last time out as they saw off Basque rivals Alaves. Away from home, they’ve been less convincing but a return of 6 points from 6 road games so far is no disaster for a newly promoted team. Jagoba Arrasate will see this as a good test for his side against a team that has really laid down the blueprint for newly promoted teams to try and follow.
We can expect wholesale changes for Getafe from their Thursday night defeat in Basel. Jorge Molina should return in attack with Angel hoping to keep Jaime Mata out of the team. The likes of Marc Cucurella and Mauro Arambarri should also return. The visitors meanwhile are hampered by a suspension to forward Chimy Avila who scored another fine goal in the win last weekend but also collected his 5th booking of the season.
Getafe vs Osasuna Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-0 Getafe
Getafe matches have been higher scoring this season but clean sheets in 2 of their last 4 outings suggests they might just be getting back to what they were last term. With the unpredictable Avila sidelined for Osasuna, they may struggle to breach this Getafe defence with the more orthodox Marc Cardona up top. The visitors have been competitive all season and this should be tight but Geta’s extra firepower may just swing it their way.
