Getafe vs Girona Predictions

This is a massive game for both Getafe and Girona. The hosts are looking to ensure they are in 4th place and pole position to secure Champions League football heading into the final fortnight of the season in La Liga. Girona meanwhile are battling just to stay in it and three points this Sunday would be a massive lift for them.

Getafe are in a three-way battle with Sevilla and Valencia for that final Champions League position. They may feel as though they missed a great opportunity to really edge ahead last time out though. With the other two sides having lost earlier in the day, Getafe failed to make them pay as they slipped to a rare away defeat at the hands of Real Sociedad. With a trip to Camp Nou to come next weekend, it’s vital they win this match.

Girona meanwhile finally stopped the rot in their last match. Having lost 6 on the bounce, they did Geta a favour by beating Sevilla 1-0 at Montilivi. The result lifted them out of the bottom three but they hold just a 2 point advantage on Valladolid in 18th heading into this game and there is still plenty of work to be done before they can start planning for another season in the top flight.

Overall, the hosts look the more likely victors here. After 35 games, it’s hard to ignore the league table and Getafe are good value for their top six status this term. They aren’t always easy on the eye but they are very strong defensively with only Atletico Madrid having conceded fewer goals in the Spanish top flight. They are also strong at home with an impressive 59% home win ratio. They come into this one having won 8 of their last 10 home matches in all competitions.

Girona meanwhile have lost their last 3 on the road, having been reasonably good travellers before that. Their victory last weekend was a much needed boost but the goals have really dried up for them with just 3 scored in their last 6 matches. Cristhian Stuani has scored over half of their goals this term but he has gone 4 without netting and the Getafe central defence is well equipped to deal with his aerial threat.

Backing Getafe to Win could be the smart punt in this one. There may also be value in going for Jorge Molina to score anytime. The veteran striker has 13 for the season now in La Liga including 3 in his last 4 games.
