Getafe vs Real Betis Preview


Getafe vs Real Betis preview

Two sides who will be hoping to get themselves into Europa League contention this season meet on Tuesday night. Despite losing at the weekend, Betis remain on top of LaLiga, although having played more games than most of the big guns. Getafe have also made a solid start and will move above their opponents if they can win this game.

The hectic nature of the end of last season perhaps didn’t suit Getafe’s high intensity approach but they’ve looked more like their old selves so far this term. Two games and two clean sheets is much more like it from Jose Bordalas’ side although tougher tests will come than Alaves and Osasuna – their two opponents so far.

Bordalas has opted to pair Jaime Mata and Cucho Hernandez in attack for the opening two games, which suggests that is going to be his first choice strike pairing, although he does have other options. Mata was on target in the 1-0 win over Osasuna, the only goal in Getafe’s two matches to date. The visit of Betis should see them get a bit more space in the final third in this match with Manuel Pellegrini unlikely to come with the intention of merely parking the bus.

For a brief moment it looked as though Betis were going to make it three wins from three to start the season on Saturday as they led Real Madrid 2-1. However Los Blancos benefited from some more dubious refereeing to come back and win the game to the frustration of Los Verdiblancos who will be eager to respond well here in what is a tricky midweek trip.

Head to Head

  • Last 6 Competitive Meetings: 3 Getafe Wins, 1 Betis Win, 2 Draws.
  • Betis had 3 players sent off across their 2 games against Getafe last term.
  • Getafe won 1-0 at the Coliseum and the sides drew 1-1 in Seville.
  • Getafe have taken 10 points from their last 4 league games against Betis overall.

Team News

Getafe have no major absentees again here and we aren’t likely to see many changes from what appears to be a fairly clear first choice XI, at least in defence and midfield. Bordalas may though opt to switch his forwards around with Enes Unal pushing for a first start.

Emerson is suspended for Betis following his red card against Real Madrid. Claudio Bravo is carrying a knock but with back-up keeper Joel Robles facing a likely ban for his post-match comments after the Real Madrid defeat, the Chilean may need to be risked.

Predicted Getafe Starting Lineup:

Soria – Olivera, Etxeita, Djene, Suarez – Cucurella, Arambarri, Maksimovic, Nyom – Mata, Unal (4-4-2)

Predicted Real Betis Starting Lineup:

Bravo – Moreno, Bartra, Mandi, Montoya – Canales, Carvalho, Rodriguez, Joaquin – Fekir, Iglesias (4-4-2)


Getafe vs Real Betis Predictions


Score Prediction: Getafe 1-1 Betis

Betis do look to have found something a bit extra this season following an underwhelming 2019/20 campaign. While they’ll be frustrated by the decisions, they will still quietly be pleased to have competed against the champions so well and should take confidence into this game. They look capable of getting a point.
