      Tip Reasoning

      The first of this Friday’s double-header in La Liga comes from Montilivi where two of the division’s smaller clubs meet. Both Girona and Getafe are having good seasons though, riding high in the top half heading into this one. The visitors could climb into 5th with victory and that will certainly be the objective for the South Madrid side.

      Getafe have largely crept up unnoticed, as is largely their style. While they lack glamour and rarely play particularly exciting football, their results of late have been very impressive. They come into this one with just one defeat in their last 10 matches and with 3 wins from their last 4 in all competitions. Having narrowly missed out on Europa League football last term, they are starting to look like real contenders to make amends this time around.

      Girona are only 3 points and 3 places further back but they have just started to wobble a bit in recent weeks, to some extent because of a bit of an injury crisis that has robbed them of the services of their in-form keeper as well as the likes of Marc Muniesa and Patrick Roberts. They’ve lost back-to-back games heading into this, although the odds were always likely to be against them at Sevilla last weekend.

      Even during their impressive run of results, Girona were riding their luck at times and overall they’ve been less impressive than Getafe. The Catalans don’t have a great home record either with just 1.13 points per game in front of their own fans this term, only the 15th best in the division. They are one of a number of sides who seem more content playing on the road where they average more points.

      Getafe have been very solid on the road, losing just 1 of their 8 away games so far in La Liga this term. They have drawn the majority of those but you have to go back four months to the opening day at the Bernabeu for their last defeat away from home in La Liga. When you consider they also won all of their final four away league games last season, that’s quite a record and it strongly suggests that Getafe will at the very least get a point here.

      The visitors carry greater momentum into this one and backing Getafe Draw No Bet may be the way to go.
