Getafe vs Osasuna Preview


Getafe vs Osasuna predictions

Getafe were one of six teams to sit out the opening weekend following their European commitments in August. They return to action on Saturday though with Osasuna visiting the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez. It’ll be a slightly new look for Getafe this term with Jorge Molina, so long the focal point of their attack, no longer at the club and it’ll be interesting to see if we do see any kind of shift towards a different style of play.

Radical alterations are unlikely with Jose Bordalas sure to set up 4-4-2 again and he’ll certainly demand the same intensity from his players. However with Cucho Hernandez and Enes Ünal joining this summer, the attack will have a more youthful feel to it and Bordalas will need to find a way to get the best out of those players who will most likely compete to start alongside Jaime Mata in attack.

Osasuna may have gone in for one of those men had they known Chimy Avila was going to suffer another ACL injury. That was a desperate blow for the Pamplona side in the week building up to the season but to their immense credit they responded strongly with a 2-0 win at Cadiz in their opening match. They have a joker in their pack by the name of Rubén García and he’s somebody who does lead the line well. If he can start chipping in with a few more goals, as he did last weekend, he’ll be a key player for Osasuna this term.

There are some similarities between these sides in that they both tend to go 4-4-2 and we should see a fiercely competitive game here. The visitors are unlikely to alter much from their opening weekend victory while Getafe are only expected to name one player who wasn’t at the club last season in their starting XI in the form of either Cucho or Ünal.

Getafe vs Osasuna Predictions


Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

Getafe weren’t their normal selves after lockdown and they could find this a really tough game against an Osasuna side that may just be that little bit sharper having already had one competitive outing this term, and a winning one at that. Jagoba Arrasate’s side would probably be content with a draw which would make it 4 points from 2 opening away games, and they look capable of getting it.
