Getafe vs Real Sociedad Preview
The Monday night game in LaLiga features two sides who resumed the season with high hopes of securing Champions League football. However both Getafe and Real Sociedad are still waiting for their first victories since the resumption and now may face battles just to make the Europa League.
There was always a suspicion that Getafe’s high intensity style of football may be tough to reproduce after three months off when players had been unable to even play friendly matches to build up any kind of match sharpness. They head into this one after three straight draws and with only one win in their last eight league games. Only the current bottom three have picked up less points than them over that period.
Real Sociedad’s slow start to this final part of the season has been more surprising. Since drawing with Osasuna in their first game back, they’ve lost three on the spin and they’ve looked really out of sorts going forward where they had been so strong. While they remain LaLiga’s 4th highest scorers overall, they’ve only netted twice since the resumption – surprisingly firing blanks in games against Celta Vigo and Alaves.
Getafe are hampered by the suspension of their best centre-back Djene Dakonam here which may help La Real find a bit more joy in the final third. However it’s a similar story at the other end of the pitch where Diego Llorente is banned for the visitors.
Getafe vs Real Sociedad Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
This feels like a ‘make or break’ kind of game for the top four ambitions of both sides. A win for either could be the launchpad for a strong finish to the campaign however neither has shown the kind of conviction to push on and win games since the restart and it’s difficult to find any strong reason to back either side to claim victory here.
