Leganes vs Getafe Prediction & Betting tips
The distance between the Butarque of Leganes and the Coliseum of Getafe is only five kilometers as the crow flies, so we immediately start the second half of LaLiga with an old-fashioned Madrid derby! Subtopper Getafe is running a much better season, but the troubled Leganes is starting to turn better in the last few weeks and knows that with a win on Friday night it can leave the relegation zone behind.
A glance at the rankings tells us that Leganes is in the middle of a dramatic season, because with a penultimate place and only three victories out of nineteen league matches, the blue and white are in acute degradation need. However, since the appointment of Mexican coach Javier Aguirre in early November, fans of Los Pepineros can hope for better times. The Madrilenians are in the middle of a great series of six unbeaten duels in a row in all competitions, including the last four LaLiga games. Thanks to this revival, Leganes has now handed over the red lantern to Espanyol, and it has now reached a safe seventeenth place. With a bit of luck, it could therefore be a very nice weekend for everyone who cares about Leganes.
However, Leganes‘ road to physical preservation is still long, and is full of steep climbs. Aguirre also has to miss some important players on Friday evening. The Greek Dimitrios Siovas – perhaps the best defender of Leganes – is in the rag basket, and star player Youssef En-Nesyri has probably already played his last match in the club’s bluish white. Seville is willing to put the surrender sum of twenty million euros on the table for the 22-year-old Moroccan attacker. A nice step for him, but a huge loss for Leganes. I am much less charmed by his replacement, because the Argentinian Guido Carrillo is still waiting for his first goal of the season after fourteen competitions.
Getafe is working hard on the road. The blue shirts ended in a surprising fifth place last season, placing them for the third time in club history for European football. Also this season the team of coach Jose Bordalas is doing well again. With a seventh place in LaLiga midway through the season, Los Azulones are also taking part again in the battle for European football, and in the sixteenth finals of the Europa League they will face Ajax next month.
Still, Bordalas grits his teeth into the Friday night city derby against Leganes. His Getafe lost her last two league matches against Villarreal (1-0) and Real Madrid (0-3), and was surprised by third-class player Badalona (2-0) in the Copa del Rey last week. In the Spanish cup tournament, the Madrilenians mostly played with the well-known names, which of course makes the defeat all the more acidic. The supporters therefore demand a reaction against Leganes, which has traditionally been their main rival. The tickets for the branch went like hot cakes over the counter, and many fans had to go home empty-handed.
