Getafe vs Malaga Prediction & Betting tips
On the basis of the rankings you might not expect it, but the meeting between Getafe and Malaga from next Friday evening in the Coliseum is a very important duel in the Spanish relegation battle. Especially the visitors crave a victory.
With a provisional eleventh place, PhD student Getafe will of course do a fantastic job, although Atletico Madrid (2-0 defeat) turned out to be too big for the men of trainer Jose Bordalas last weekend. Afterwards it was mainly about the red card for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa, who was presented with a second yellow card because he celebrated his goal with the audience. However, there was also enough conversation material at Getafe. Goalkeeper Vicente Guaita remained injured in the Wanda Metropolitano. “Guaita told me he was not fit and that’s why I left him out of the basics. I can not say more about it, ‘Bordalas said in the closing press conference. That does not seem to be the truth, because the closing point can count on interest from both Valencia and various clubs from the English Premier League. It therefore seems that Guaita is trying to force a transfer in this way, although he did return to the training field this week.
However, a possible sale of Guaita could be expensive for Getafe. The goalkeeper is in a very strong season and is one of the main reasons why Los Azulones only had to beat eighteen goals this season. Second choice Emiliano Martinez is clearly a class less. The defense of the Madrilenians is already somewhat battered Friday night because of the lack of Dakonam Djene (suspended) and Markel Bergara (injured). It could therefore be that Bordalas against Malaga still appeals to Guaita, if at that time at least still and is sufficiently motivated to play.
The fans of Malaga are not to be envied. Last summer, the club dreamed aloud of European football, but halfway through the season the Andalusians are only eleven points and a penultimate place in acute degrading. Last Monday night, 0-1 was lost to Espanyol for homeowners. Trainer Michel: ‘The situation is almost catastrophic, but I still believe in a solution. We still believe in a turnaround, although it is not easy to keep up the courage. ‘
You can not deny fighting spirit, but there is simply too much meddling around in the Rosaleda. The club saw last summer support pillars like Ignacio Camacho and Sandro Ramirez leave, while their substitutes do not meet. Especially the attack is badly bad. In the last three home matches, Malaga set the enemy goal in total 53 times under attack, but did not score any time. Venezuelan striker Adalberto Penaranda makes it this season with 21 goals, but zero goals. With only thirteen league goals, Malaga is now the least scoring club of La Liga, together with Alaves and Leganes. It is extra painful that Michael Santos, who was seconded to second division Sporting Gijon, was ten times accurate this season. Last weekend, the Uruguayan again accounted for two goals. An expensive estimation error, because Malaga could only use his scoring drive.
