Getafe vs Celta Vigo Prediction & Betting tips
Saturday afternoon there is a lot at stake when Getafe gets a visit from Celta de Vigo in his own Coliseum. The home club secretly dreams of European football, while the visitors have to fear relegation.
With 32 points and a tentative fifth place, Getafe is one of the biggest surprises of this season in La Liga. The last few weeks, although it was less with the people of Madrid, but that was mainly because of the busy schedule. Eight matches in a period of barely 23 days was a bit too much for the narrow selection of coach Jose Bordalas, who rewarded his team after last week’s goalless draw against Levante with two free days.
Despite the excellent results, Getafe receives little praise. Opponents regularly complain about the hard game of Los Azulones, who with seventy yellow and five red cards indeed often find the edge of permissible. There is nothing wrong with that in my opinion. Getafe knows that it does not have the very best footballers and therefore deliberately chooses to throw it in another direction. Ultimately, the referee determines how far you can go, so opponents could better focus their criticism on the referee corps. I think it’s great what Bordalas manages to achieve at Getafe with minimal resources. The blue shirts do particularly well in defensive terms, because with only eighteen opponents, only Atletico Madrid has an even better defense.
Celta de Vigo:
Celta de Vigo has a terribly bad season, but knows the relegation zone after a nice 1-0 win on Sevilla for the time being again behind him. It marked the first victory in 59 days and the first win in almost two years without star player Iago Aspas within the lines.
The chance that Aspas will be back again this weekend seems small. The vedette returned to the training field this week, but could not participate in all the exercises. Coach Miguel Cardoso knows that he will still need his talisman in the Spanish relegation battle and will not want to take any major risks. The Portuguese coach will have to make it Saturday afternoon without Okay Yokuslu, the match winner of last weekend. The Turk not only scored the only goal, but also ran into his fifth yellow card of the season and was suspended. This brings Stanislav Lobotka back into the picture. The Slovakian recently lost his basic place after being out of shape for some time. Lobotka is happy to find the solution, but is also one of the players who sometimes wants to lose sight of his defensive duties. In no less than seven of the last nine outings in La Liga, La Celeste had at least two goals against his ears.
