Getafe vs Levante predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s match in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as Geta return to action after a long midweek trip to Turkey.
Getafe vs Levante Preview
Getafe have so far managed to balance their European campaign with domestic football pretty well but this will be one of their bigger challenges. They had to deal with a long trip to Turkey on Thursday and have had a relatively short recovery time heading into this one. Levante will be hoping to take full advantage of that on a ground where they’ve enjoyed plenty of success in recent years.
Paco Lopez has tended to get the better of Jose Bordalas in their meetings with Geta having failed to beat Levante since their return to the top flight in 2017. They should take plenty of confidence into this game though having gone 4 matches without defeat in La Liga in addition to their European victory. Barcelona are the only team to have won at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez so far this term in the league and Geta look in good shape to push for European qualification again although that battle is shaping up to be more competitive this year.
A European challenge may be beyond Levante’s capabilities but they are within touching distance of the top six as it stands and would move above their opponents were they to win this game. The Valencia side have won 3 of their last 4 in La Liga so they also take momentum into this one too. Their overall away record isn’t that great though with 5 of their 7 road games ending in defeat so far this season.
Getafe named a relatively strong side in Europe with their first choice strike pairing of Jaime Mata and Jorge Molina starting. However they do still have plenty of fresh legs to bring in with the likes of Marc Cucuerella, Damian Suarez and Jason all likely to come in for this game so fatigue shouldn’t be a huge concern.
Getafe vs Levante Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Getafe
The recent meetings between these sides have been low-scoring but this one might just serve up a bit more entertainment. It does feel as though Getafe have made some effort to be a bit more positive this season and their average of 1.36 goals per game is better than the likes of Sevilla and Atletico Madrid for example. Levante meanwhile have perhaps tried to edge towards a slightly more cautious style but they are yet to keep an away clean sheet and Geta look capable of exposing those flaws in this game although a relatively close contest is likely.
