Alaves vs Getafe Prediction & Betting tips
The starting shot of the Spanish football Saturday sounds in the third round of play from the Mendizorroza, Deportivo Alavés receives a visit from Getafe in Madrid. Last season, the mutual encounters both ended in a draw, will there be a winner this weekend?
Deportivo Alavés has had a false start to the new season so far. In the first round of play, the Basques went down in-house against the Andalusian Real Betis and last weekend it went wrong again against a southern Spanish opponent. In and against Granada, El Glorioso was able to defuse the early opening goal of the home team, but in the end the southerners turned out to be a size too big for the team of brand new trainer Pablo Machín: 2-1. Incidentally, the defeats were not entirely unexpected, not one game was won in the preparation for the new season and the final phase of last season was also downright bad.
This weekend again promises not to be an easy battle against the capital. Just like last round of play, club top scorer of last season Lucas Pérez still has to be missed. The striker was injured halfway through last week and so former Getafe player and Ajax bully Deyverson will probably do the honors. A big loss of course, together with Joselu, Pérez forms a true royal couple that last season accounted for the bulk of the total goal production of El Glorioso. Furthermore, basic players Tomás Pina and Manu García are missing this weekend.
In contrast to the opponent on Saturday afternoon, José Bordalás’ Getafe opened the new season with a three-pointer. Due to the midsummer performance in Europe, the first round was moved and so the blue shirts only played the first game of the year last week. Against Osasuna, the men of trainer Bordalás gave a lesson in effectiveness, with only one shot on goal they managed to ensure a victory: 1-0. Getafe’s game was certainly not smashing, but they didn’t sleep for a second in the Spanish capital.
Who would have thought that after all the criticism of the past seasons Bordalás would send his players with a less hard playing style into the field is wrong, in the opening game four yellow cards were immediately taken and so the club does not seem to be competing for this year. the fair play prize. Furthermore, summer acquisition Cucho Hernández will be able to start again in the base this weekend, the striker came over from Mallorca and seems to be winning the competition for the time being from the other summer purchase, Enes Ünal. The Azulones will play this weekend with a fit selection, so confidence is good.
