Getafe vs Sevilla Preview
This Sunday’s clash between Getafe and Sevilla is a really big game in the race for Champions League qualification. Both sides were involved in Europa League action on Thursday night but they may well end up battling it out for one place in Europe’s premier club competition for next season.
It’s Getafe that are certainly currently in the box-seat. They sit in 3rd place and are 2 points above Sevilla and in much the better form. They were outstanding against Ajax on Thursday night, restricting the Dutch champions to just 2 shots, neither of which was on target, in their Europa League last 32 clash. That was a 6th win in 7 home matches for Geta who managed to keep a clean sheet in all of those victories.
That’s the kind of challenge that Sevilla are faced with here. Julen Lopetegui’s side do have La Liga’s 2nd best away record with 6 away victories already this term in La Liga. However their overall form is far worse with just 1 win in their last 6 league matches. The latest setback was a 2-2 draw at home to bottom club Espanyol last weekend and the pressure is starting to build a bit on Julen Lopetegui.
The former Real Madrid boss named a strong eleven as Sevilla drew 1-1 in Romania against Cluj on Thursday night. There could be some rotation from that side with Youssef En-Nesyri likely to lead the line after his key leveller in that game. Getafe meanwhile should recall Jorge Molina in attack while the fit again Jason will compete with Allan Nyom for a starting role on the right flank.
Getafe vs Sevilla Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Getafe
Getafe are a horrible team to play against as the likes of Ajax and Valencia have found out in recent weeks. There’s not much about this current Sevilla side that suggests this will go any better for them. The visitors aren’t looking as solid defensively as they did earlier in the season and they still haven’t found the definitive solution in attack. This could be another bright day in an increasingly bright season for Getafe.
