The home team is currently in the 8 th position of the league, with 16 points won, after 5 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Deportivo Alavés, by (2-0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Espanyol, by (1-0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 16 goals scored and 24 conceded; against 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 21 conceded. For the league, Real Betis won 12 points out of 15 possible points, after 4 wins and 1 loss in the last 5 home matches. They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 10 matches in the competition, they suffered the first goal 4 times and only managed 1 comeback. In the last 6 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 6 of their 13 goals between minutes (76’-90 ‘).
Betis has not shown much regularity so far in the Spanish league, considering that it has not yet managed to establish a good sequence of positive results and now it comes from another defeat. In that game, he showed a lot of pass quality and had a good control of the game, but even so he was overtaken by Espanyol. Based on the numbers of the competition, we can notice that the one who is causing this performance is not very positive is the defensive sector, which is among the six weakest, although he has only suffered one goal in the last two days. However, despite the good number of goals scored, his attack is among those that least finish. At home, he has one of the best campaigns and in this condition his attack has thirteen goals scored in five games. It is likely that the technician keeps the team in a 4-3-3, with highlight for Guardado in the center of the field.
The away team is currently in the 11 th position of the league, with 12 points won, after 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Levante, by (1-1). In the last match, they won at home against Real Sociedad by (2-1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 26 goals scored and 10 conceded. For the league, Getafe won 6 points out of 15 possible points, after 1 win, 3 draws and 1 loss in the last 5 away matches. They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 10 matches in this tournament, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have only won 1 result.
The Getafe enters the field for this game a little more relieved, having managed to rediscover the path of victory in the Spanish league, thus interrupting a fast that lasted three days, a period in which he accumulated two consecutive defeats. This victory had an even better flavor because it happened against the powerful Real Madrid, which increases the morale of the club. The numbers of the competition do not reveal major problems in any of the sectors, but the attack is leaving a bit to be desired, although it has not scored in two matches so far, since it is among the four teams that least finish. However, the team needs to perfect some points, since it is the one that most passes erra, having the second worst average possession of the ball, which ends up facilitating the work of the opponents. As a visitor, Getafe is outstanding for its defensive consistency.
