      Getafe vs Espanyol Predictions


      The hosts are in good form having gone 6 games without defeat in all competitions to move away from danger and up to 12th in the division. They’ve won both league matches in 2016 so far beating Sporting Gijon away 2-1 and Real Betis at home 1-0 last time out.

      Unlike Espanyol, there weren’t involved in the Copa del Rey in midweek so should be the fresher of the two sides. Espanyol were beaten 2-0 at home by Barcelona to exit the competition 6-1 on aggregate against their city rivals. It extended their winless run to 5 matches after their 2-1 defeat at Eibar in La Liga last weekend and they’ve lost 7 of their last 8 matches away from home which is a big worry coming into this one.

      For that reason you have to like the look of backing Getafe at 6/5 to win this one. They were unfortunate to lose on the opening day when these sides met in Barcelona and have lost only 1 of their last 10 at home, winning 6 times.

      Both sides have one or two players missing through injury at one of the busiest stages of the season but it is Espanyol who have the bigger problems. They will be missing Víctor Sánchez, Jose Alberto Cañas and Anaitz Arbilla due to injury issues while Javi López is suspended.

      5 of those 6 Getafe home wins were to nil and given Espanyol have one of the worst goalscoring records in the league, averaging less than a goal per game, backing Getafe to win this 2-0 at 17/2 might be a smart punt.
