On the first Sunday in November, Getafe are hosts to Valencia. The teams currently stand five places apart, however that is only a three point gap. Getafe currently sit in sixth, a Europa League position, whilst Valencia are in 11th.

Recent Form

In their last five games (in all competitions), Getafe are the in form side, they have won four and lost one. Whereas Valencia have won two, lost two and drawn one.

Head to Head

In their last 6 games against each other, Valencia have won five (83%) whilst Getafe have only won one (17%). There has been an average of 3.8 goals per game.

It is worth noting that there have been 32 cards in the last 6 meetings.

Goals Conceded

With 10 games played, Getafe have conceded 12 and Valencia 17. An average of 1.2 and 1.7 goals per game respectively.

The teams are not too different in their goals scored, with Getafe scoring 14 and Valencia 13.

Team News

Both teams only missing two players. Getafe are missing Abdelaziz Barrada and Alvaro Arroyo through injury. Whereas, Valencia are missing Antonio Barragan through injury and Ever Banega through suspension.

Getafe are likely to be relying on the Spanish pair of Pedro León and Adrián Colunga, who both have scored three goals each this season. Valencia will be looking at versatile forward, Jonas, who is currently the highest goal scorer of both teams with four goals.

Conclusion

Both teams are fighting for a place in Europe. With Getafe currently holding the better record this season, they will be looking to change the head-to-head statistics in their favour. The game should see goals, cards and passion. But despite Getafe’s recent good record, I can’t see them defeating this Valencia side. I think it will be a Valencia victory or a draw.
