Valencia – Getafe SOCCER PICKS
Valencia-Getafe at Mestalla next weekend. Let’s go for the draw or the victory of the blue team at home of Valencia.
It will be an encounter with enough things to dispute.
First of all, both teams are in full fight for European positions. The Getafe, 4th, is in positions of Champions League, with 4 points of advantage over Alavés (5th) and 3 of Real Madrid in the absence of Valladolid-Real Madrid today.
Valencia, 8th with 36 points, is 1 point behind the Europa League posts, line that marks Seville with 37 points. Still to play the Girona-Valencia and Sevilla-Real Sociedad this afternoon.
However, I think that this Getafe is capable of scoring at Mestalla. It will be a very hot game: fight to enter posts in Europe and Valencia 3-1 Cup Getafe in the minds of both teams for all that led: elimination of Getafe Cup and fights and statements after the match. A lot to clarify.
Keep in mind that this Thursday Valencia travels to Krasnodar. The 2-1 first-leg knockout of Europa League does not leave anything for sentenced, so I guess Marcelino will not reserve anything. This load of meetings in February-March can hurt the Valencian team: possible injuries and muscle loads, rotations … while Getafe only has in mind to play the League matches with the aim of settling in that 4th place that gives the ticket to the Champions.
This weekend saw again the strength of the whole Madrid. He overcame the initial 0-1 Huesca thanks to the 2 goals of Jaime Mata. They are sweet, both Mata and Molina, facing goal, and they know at all times what they play, from the defensive solidity with Antunes-Damián Suárez-Djene-Cabrera, passed by the midfield to the goal that the 2 strikers have, with Mata as the national league’s top scorer.
As a local, Valencia have only lost 1 of the 13 matches played. However, 9 draws stand out over the 4 local victories. The Getafe, 4th best visitor of the competition, has fallen in 2 of the 14 games played away from the Coliseum, highlighting that these defeats were against Atlético (2-0) and Real Madrid (2-0) in the first day of the League , which shows the good dynamics that the Bordalás team is going through.
