Prediction and odds for the game: Getafe (6/4) v Real Sociedad (21/10)
We are backing the draw at 2/1
When: Monday, 29th June 2020, Kick-off 21:00
Where: Coliseum Alfonso Perez
On Monday night, Getafe host Real Sociedad at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, in what could be a vital game in the race for a top-six finish in La Liga this season.
The home side has not been in the best of form since the restart of La Liga, as they have failed to win in four games since the return of action earlier this month. However, their last three league matches in the Spanish top-flight have finished all-square against Espanyol, Eibar and Real Valladolid.
The recent unconvincing form has certainly hampered their chances of finishing in the Champions League spots. However, Jose Bordalas’ team are still only five points behind fourth-place Sevilla, with a game in-hand on the Andalusians. The team from the capital are also just two points clear of the visitors, who occupy seventh place. Failing to win would see the visitors leapfrog them in the table.
Getafe have struggled for results in the Spanish top-flight on home soil, as they have failed to win in their last four home matches. They have also scored just one goal in their previous four league games at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
One positive for Getafe is their recent record in recent meetings with Sociedad, as the home side has won five of the last six games against the visitors. They have also lost just one of the previous seven matches against La Real.
Imanol Alguacil’s team head into this game in poor form, having failed to win in their four league games since the restart, just like the hosts. The visitors suffered a highly disappointing 1-0 home defeat in their previous league, which means they have suffered three straight defeats. The previous losses came against Alaves and Real Madrid.
The recent poor run of results are in danger of spoiling what has been a very good season for La Real. A victory in this clash would be enough to move them back into the top-six and the Europa League qualification spots.
Real Sociedad may look back on their recent away form with regret, as they have lost five of their last eight league matches on their travels, recording wins in the other three outings. Their recent away games in La Liga have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four matches on their travels.
This could be a pivotal game in both teams’ seasons, with the end of the season almost in sight. The pair have been in poor form of late in La Liga. We are going to sit on the fence here and back the draw. We are also backing under 2.5 goals scored, as Getafe’s home matches and La Real’s away games have been low-scoring of late.
Verdict: We are backing the draw at odds of 2/1 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 8/15. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
