Tip Reasoning

When the pair met just over a month ago, Getafe fought their way to a 2-1 victory, meaning that they only need to draw in front of their own fans to progress to the next round. However, after beating Espanyol by three goals to nil at the weekend, José Bordalás’ men should have their tails up and may just be looking to continue building momentum by recording another victory.

After a pleasing first campaign back at the top-level last season, Getafe have continued to look good this season. José Bordalás worked wonders with the Madrid club last season and he continues to guide them in the right direction, as they sit in a pleasing 8th position in the La Liga table.

In terms of this fixture, Getafe will return home feeling very confident after they delivered a commanding performance in Cordoba. The 2-1 score-line suggests that there wasn’t much in it, but the La Liga side were easily the better of the two and were good value for a more comfortable win, as they fact that they ended the game with a +1.74 expected goal supremacy.

What’s more, Getafe’s home performances this season have been excellent. Bordalás’ men haven’t always got the desired result at the Coliseum, but their overall performance levels have been very pleasing. They’re averaging 1.6 expected goals for and are giving up just 0.89 at the other end, while they’ve been outdone at no point by their opponents in terms of expected goals in front of a home crowd.

In contrast, Cordoba have struggled to play well on their travels this season. In the second division, Tuesday’s visitors have lost six out of seven, while they remain without a win away from the comforts of home. They’re yet to keep a clean sheet, have conceded at least three goals on five occasions and have now shipped a total of 18 goals on the road. Furthermore, they’re averaging just 0.89 expected goals for and are giving up a worrying 1.98 at the other end. Such stats do anything other than tell us that the visitors will be putting up a fight at Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.

At the prices, the bet that stands out ahead of this match is ‘Getafe to Score Over 2.5 Goals’. The hosts have delivered some very promising attacking performances on their own patch in La Liga, while they found it very easy to get at Cordoba in the first leg. Now back on their own patch, against a side that has been conceding goals for fun on the road in the second division, Bordalás’ men are backed to run riot.
