It will be difficult for the Basques to reach the European Cup
Athletic cannot boast much success this season, the club played in the Spanish Super Cup final, where they lost to Real Madrid. There were also chances to compete for the King’s Cup, but here they crashed out in the semi-finals. In the Primera the Basques are in eighth place, 7 points behind the top six, so their chances of qualifying for the European Cup are slim. The team lost 0-1 away to Athletic in the last round, continuing to alternate between home wins and away defeats. Injuries will prevent two players from taking to the pitch.
Getafe to relax early
Getafe have pulled off a mini feat this season, managing to escape from the ranks of the outsiders, where the club is tightly stuck. The team is now 15th in the standings, with a four-point lead over the relegation zone. They were doing even better until they went into the five-game unbeaten streak, during which time they managed to pick up just three points. That’s not to say that the team is playing poorly, just lacking concentration somewhere. In the last round, Getafe dropped points to Valencia 0-0 at home. There are no staffing losses before this clash.
The teams were not happy with the results in the first round, their meeting ended 0-0, in that meeting Getafe had the advantage, but failed to score.
Bookmakers’ quotes indicate the advantage of Athletic, this is due to the fact that the Basques play at home and are considered stronger. Despite poor recent results, Getafe are still capable of putting up decent resistance. We expect a serious fight and bet on the visitors’ success with a +1 goal handicap.
