Getafe vs Real Betis predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as two Europa League hopefuls meet.
Getafe vs Real Betis Preview
Real Betis play in Madrid for the second time in four days this Sunday and they’ll be hoping this one goes better than their midweek trip to Rayo Vallecano which saw them knocked out on penalties. Getafe will provide a different kind of test but it’s the kind of game that Betis need to get something from if they are going to propel themselves into European contention over the coming months.
Getafe have had the week off after their shock exit in the last round and that might just give them the edge here when you consider Betis named a strong side at Rayo and ended up having to play for 120 minutes. It’s actually 9 days since Jose Bordalas’ side played and that was an impressive 3-0 derby win at Leganes although they were beaten 3-0 on their last outing at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez by Real Madrid.
Betis’ showing in Vallecas was particularly surprising given not just the quality of players they sent out but the quality of their performance only three days earlier against Real Sociedad. They dispatched the high-flying Basques 3-0 at the Benito Villamarin and are in quite strong overall form in La Liga with 4 wins and only 1 defeat from their last 7.
Rubi may feel he needs to bring some fresh legs in here. Joaquin is one man who should come in after he only featured off the bench at Rayo, scoring a key equaliser before ultimately skying a penalty in the shootout. The visitors will be without impressive full-back Emerson though due to suspension.
Getafe meanwhile do have a central defensive conundrum to solve after Espanyol activated the release clause of Leandro Cabrera. Xabier Etxeita looks set to be Djene’s new partner.
Getafe vs Real Betis Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Getafe
No Betis player this season has created more league goals than the suspended Emerson (5 assists) so that is a significant blow. An away game against a physical and fresh Getafe is the last thing you really want less than 72 hours after a bruising 120 minutes of cup action and the hosts look good for the win here having impressed last time out.
