Villarreal vs Getafe predictions, H2H and match preview for this Saturday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as the visitors aim to keep their fine run going.
Villarreal vs Getafe Preview
Villarreal entertain Getafe on Saturday in a game that features a real contrast in styles. Villarreal have some talented individuals and at times are capable of some good football but for the second season running they’ve been completely outperformed by a disciplined Getafe side. The South Madrid outfit are riding high again this term and are hoping to head into the Christmas break in the top four.
They will encounter a Villarreal side that ought to be a bit more confident following an impressive win away to Sevilla last weekend. That brought to an end a worrying 6 game losing streak which had seen them slide down the table. They’ve been quite strong at the Ceramica overall this term though with only one defeat to date in front of their own fans building on a strong end to last season at home.
Villarreal’s slide has coincided with Getafe’s rise and rise up the league table. They head into this game with 5 wins and 2 draws from their last 7 league outings. The last three have all ended in victories to nil. Indeed Geta now really look to be back to the outstanding defensive standards they set last season with only 1 goal conceded in their last 6 matches in La Liga and encouragingly they’ve looked relatively lively up top too with 7 goals scored in their last 3 matches alone.
Getafe will also be encouraged by Villarreal having a fitness concern over Santi Cazorla here. The veteran playmaker has been in fine form and scored a cracking goal in the Copa del Rey in midweek. Javi Calleja will be hoping he pulls through as Cazorla could well be the key to unlocking this tight Getafe defence.
Villarreal vs Getafe Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
This game looks destined for a draw. The one thing that perhaps separates Getafe from being at a level where they can truly challenge for a top four finish this season is their inability to convert one point into three away from home. Villarreal have also been drawing plenty with 50% of their home league games so far this season ending level.
